    Tamiya MFC 01 ,issue?

    So I think the main thing here that I can see is confussing us all is you dont have a spektrum handset so hence all the confusion over the radio gear. I am guessing its made by JR via Hobbyking? Saying that though it should have the alibity to be able to switch the D/R to 125% with the flick of one switch. (on the 3 channels not the throttle) But having not used one of these types of transmitter i am not 100% sure! There is a very good group that meet in Detling, Kent every month. Are you north or south london? To operate the D/R on the DX9 its just one button that as mentioned throws the 3 channels required. Its not used a huge amount mostly on startup and shut down, or if you are using the auto legs. Another option is you can change the horn sound on the MFC-03 as well so that gets a look in now and then Our next Tamiya Truckin show is in North weald at the end of June. This is a great outdoor show and we have a 15m x 15m layout. One other point the MFC-03 only has the horn working in the up direction. Holding the stick down gives you a rev mode! so you can do a slow launch if you have throttle up and then bring up the right stick! This is one of the main points on the 03 over the 01 unit. Ant

    Tamiya MFC 01 ,issue?

    HIya, Hopefully the files have attached below. Truck 1 is the MFC-03 and Truck 2 is the MFC-01. You will see this in the info. Just load them onto a memory card and import the model in. Then just change the name to match your rig! Any questions let me know Ant 017~Truck 1.SPM 018~Truck 2.SPM

    Tamiya MFC 01 ,issue?

    Just to Quickly add if you would like a setup program that i use on my Spektrum DX9 for both the 01 and 03 units, then let me know. I have set the bind button to throw the setting to 125% normal this allows the extra features to work on the MFC units. It means you cant accidently leave it in the wrong mode Ant

    Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3348 Tipper

    Latest prices Retail £629 and tipper mech at £380!! I Am sure shops will be discounting these prices. But a rather heft tag to start with.
  5. Correct the carson steering bars are aimed for use with all the euro rigs as the us based rigs have a different steering setup! So its a no go for using this with them!! Ant
  6. A great event. Was great to also meet up with fellow TC members. Images will be going up in my showroom shortly! Again huge thanks to guys at Radshape for hosting the event! Ant
  7. Be good to see you all there Ant
  8. Looking forward to this show! The Truck layout has been designed and we will be setting up on the Friday for about 4 hours!! Ant
  9. Let me know when you have one, as if you want I can send you the model file I use All you have to do then is copy it onto the SD card and import into the tx! and remember all you have to do is take off the back and loosen the ratchet off to get full spring on the throttle Ant
  10. Yes it really makes it fun not having to keep turning off and then switch on the next truck when at a show, just turn them all on at the start and away you go You can actually set the mixes up on the spektrum sets to actually put the lights and such with a flick of a switch. You just have to play around with the mixes which takes the time!!
  11. Hi Berman, simple so long as the lights are not on when you do the remote shut down not an issue. Also I have even left the truck running so as to swap to another truck so I can move it out the way to let me park the current truck in its place. The system is not as grumpy as when I was using it on 40mhz. It brings on a complete new level when running the trucks on 2.4ghz Spektrum systems! I have had a total of 10 models on a layout all on at one point! Its great when visitors cant work out how and who is running the truck or cars Ant
  12. The DX6i works well with the MFU the new DX6 is a nicer TX. I have a ".SPM" file that can be used on that. Plus it already has the throttle spring fitted all you do is undo the tension on the ratchet!! The best receiver to use is the Orange R620 w/failsafe. I have this running on my trucks with my DX9. It's great to have 4 trucks all turned on and able to swap with out going near them when on the layout!!! Servo I use are the Futaba S3003 as suggested above! Ant
  13. Yep I will be there with my RC Truck Layout Looking forward to the event! Ant

    DX7 radio with MFCU

    I Use a DX9 with 5 of my rigs and the Orange R710 receiver! Works perfect on the MFC-01 and the MFC-03 I use the bind button as the button to switch the mix mode to operate the special functions. Ant

    R620 Scania problem

    The yellow and green wires from the motor, you need to slid the rubber cover over this on the yellow one so its like the green cable. The 5 pin plug is the connector along the bottom (as you look in the picture) of where all the lights plug in. This would normal be used for pluging in the trailer lights. Regarding the "B" plug just take it all out including the switch as this is not needed as all power is supplied from the mfu!!! This could be causing your even created the problems! So this is a major thing to remove!!!!!!!! Ant

    R620 Scania problem

    Remove the aa batteries all together! as this could damage many things even the mfu!! As power is already being feed from the mfu via channel 3 (ESC) to the receiver, you are overloading the system! Hopefully its done no damage to the electrics. Have you tried with the trims not moving to the full extent to flick the lights on? Ant

    R620 Scania problem

    It can be sometimes be when you move the trimes to activate the hazards and lights not to go to full extreme! It does this sometimes on my field force 6 sets! I also noticed you got an "AA" battery pack in there i hope you dont have this hooked to the receiver, as the power to the receiver is supllied from the MFU Ant
  19. Yep it was great to meet everyone at the filming! It was a fun few days!! As you say can't believe it was that long ago seems like just last year Ant
  20. Neat looking build, As you say its making these rigs unique that makes it all the fun!! Another site to look at is http://www.tamiyatruckin.org.uk Ant

    Question for Ant88

    Yes, there is just enough room to place the MFU between the 2 front seats. This is how i built the unit into mine . I also made a custom tray to fit this as well which can be found in my showroom trades. you can see some pics in my showroom Let me know how you get on! Ant
