Radio Shacks Tiger 1 Tank

Hi All,

New here to the group.
I have a Tiger 1 tank that my wife got me a few years back from radio Shack. I think it's 1/48 scale, maybe someone knows for sure, it's prety small. I like it, cause it was a gift for one and it has some neat features. Was wondering if anybody knows anything about these tanks from radio shack? recently i had to replace the battery and after I did that the sound part quit working. Any suggestions or where to get parts would be much appreciated.

its not about parts..you have an open circuit in the audio section. check the wires to the speaker.

I have 2 of these tanks and I removed the radio gear from one and installed it in a Tamiya 1/25th scale tiger and it is powered by a single lipo cell.

Hmmm....Ok that sounds good. Should mention that the LED for the cannon also does not lite up. But like I said it recoils....I will check the speaker a little closer. Got any more info on the Lipo cell? Not familiar with that one. I don't like the batteries that came with it. They die out too quickly. Thanks for the info....

Good stuff....thanks for sending that. I like the idea of being to get to the batteries when you want to.
Not sure if I should go back to Batteries plus and get a new battery for it or find another battery like you have here.
