Question for Phil - WSN/Trumpeter 1/16 Tiger I Tank

OK, I would like to get my first IR tanks, saw this WSN 1/16 Tiger I on Phil's website, so instead of upgrading my current tank fleet (HL Tiger I, Panther G and King Tiger) to IR, doesn't it make more sense to get the WSN model? The link won't take you to the model directly, so you'll have to scroll all the way to the end to see it (Phil, when are you going to update your site to improve searching for tanks and accessories?).

Any recommendations from you tank veterans to this noob? Thanks.

ir upgrade it

hongrn
While I don't own any WSN tanks general feeling is they're not the best runners
other may like to share their experance

T-34/85 Infra-red would be my only consideration from Trumpeter

Upgrading your current motor pool to IR shouldn't be that hard & it's the road I'm going down with my older Heng Long Tiger1 & PanzerIII + KV1 plus Mato Kingtiger since owning the Heng Long Jagdpanther super IR version I need a battle buddy or two

My LHS sells both the WSN Tiger & T-34/85 & if you want a highly detailed tank, the Tiger is a great buy for the price but will need some mods which Phil can help you with.

BTW, Trumpeter & WSN are one & the same. I've got 2 of the T-34s with one converted with Tamiya guts which makes it a great runner.

I bought both the Tiger and the T-34. I don't like them and I feel I wasted my money. The controllers are different from the HL, my T-34 does not drive straight, I cannot find the battery packs any where so I have to use AA batteries, and they can't be used with HL. I would steer away and get a HL.

Jack,

What about the IR system? Can you comment on that? Thanks for your reply.

The IR system works, but only between the WSN tanks not with the HL tanks.

The Best way to get a hold of me is just e-mail me,,, fluegivation@gmail.com as I am not on the forums that often. I was hoping to update the website this year, but it does not look like it will happen. What I do have is the upgrade parts listed close buy the unit for sale, or request a parts, and I place order with RCTank.de so you can get in on those orders with me and same on ordering directly form them by saving on the shipping cost. Thanks for your interest.

Phil
