This is a 1/16 scale fully painted and assembled
replica of the German Panzer IV Tank featuring radio-controlled of all
movement including turret rotation and gun elevation. It features full
suspension and a main gun that fires BB pellets up to 25 meters! Excellent
value for money and a big improvement on the previous non-sound/smoking
version. A great introduction to large scale radio controlled tanks.
This Tank Actually Shoots!
This tank actually shoots 6mm plastic BBs from a fully automatic motorised
firing system using self-generated compressed air. These can hit a target
up to 25m away. The tank can fire while on the move or stationary and can
hold up to 40 BBs in the turret. A box of pellets is included to get you
Full Function Radio Control
The model comes with a dedicated control transmitter
unit with its own on/off switch and an 'On' indicator light. The transmitter
requires 8 AA alkaline batteries (not included). Interchageable crystals
allow more than one tanks to be operated at the same time.
The three central buttons near the bottom of the transmitter
have the functions of:
1. Engine icon - Starting & stopping the engine
with starting motor and engine shutdown effects
2. G - Firing the hull
machine gun with flashing light on the cupola and sound effects
3. K -
Simulates main gun firing sound and recoil of the hull. It does not fire
the gun. (Push the left joy stock forward to fire BBs from the main gun)
The BB gun will only fire if the safety switch hidden underneath
the loader's hatch is switched on. The red light to the side of the main
gun will come on when the gun is about to fire.
Full Movement Control
The turret is able to turn left and right to almost
a complete circle (320 degrees). Push the left joy stock left or right
to rotate the turret.
The BB gun can be fired at the same time while the
tank is moving. The gun can move up and down at the same time as the turret
The barrel has an approximately 20 degree tilt up & down.
Push the left joy stock down to move the gun up & down.
suspension and proportional speeds allow it to climb gradient of 35 degrees
and overcome most terrains and minor obstacles.
The right joy stock is
used to control all movement including forward, backward, left turn, right
turn, left spin, right spin, backward left turn and backward right turn.
The two trim levers for the right joy stick can be used to fine tune the
Exhaust Smoking Function
This tank comes with a built-in smoke generator to provide exhaust smoking
function. The smoke comes out of the rear exhaust when the engine is running.
It can be switched off via a switch underneath the tank. The tank comes
with a little oil in the smoke generator unit. Add a few drops of oil from
the bottle supplied into the tubes inside the exhaust periodically! Working
front and rear lights.
The volume of the sound effects can also be adjusted by
the small white switch on the bottom of the tank using a small flat screw
driver. Turn clockwise to lower the volume and anti-clockwise to increase
the volume !?!
The operational frequency of each tank can be changed by simply
replacing the crystal on the transmitter and on the tank by a set with
a different frequency. The replaceable transmitter crystal plugs into a
socket to the right of the three function buttons. The receiver crystal
is underneath the tank within the battery compartment. The two crystals
must be the same frequency for the tank to operate. Do not operate tank
of the same frequency close to each other or erratic behaviour may result
and cause possible damage to tank and people.
With multiple sets of different
frequency crystals, you can run more than one tank at the same time and
battle with friends for extra fun! Use crystals in the 27MHz range.
Battery and Charger
This tank comes with a 7.2V Ni-Cad rechargeable battery
and charger suitable for use in the UK. Oversea customers will need a converter/transformer.
The charger need about 7 to 8 hours for a full charge. Running time per
full charge can be as long as 30 minutes depending on pattern of play.
