IR for Heng Long battle or Tamiya compatible?

There's a lot of options from getting the HL wiring harness, apple and emitter, or adding a Mako board with a HL apple or probably the best, using a DBC board.

A DBC-RC 2 or 3 will give you the ability use another Tx (2.4 or whatever) and battle Tamiya compatible tanks. Since it's an independent board, you can leave your airsoft intact and switch between either BBs or IR or both.

I like that idea! It sounds a bit costly though. I live in Vermont so I wont have many tanks to battle with. Unless of coarse you want to drive 300 miles to come battle me.

Is it a S&S tank? If not almost cheaper to buy a new tank.

The airsoft gun is real easy to fix, but you'll need to take the whole turret apart to get to it.

I know how to take it apart. Don't have a clue how to fix the gun though. Can you post detailed instructions?
