Hi all, I’m an R/C tank enthusiast and have an all metal Tiger 1 that’s run into gun recoil problems due to too much friction in the mechanics overloading a servo. I’ve got hold of an upgrade recoil system and need to adapt it for use in my Mato Tiger. To do this I need some meat taken off a 1 cm approx. section of aluminium tube (barrel) that is about 1cm in diameter.
Longer-term I’d like to make a custom recoil and gun elevation unit - possibly 3D printed based on gears instead of rod actuators.
Since I’m not qualified to operate a lathe I’m writing to the forum to see if anyone would be interested in helping me solve this problem or design an alternative.
I can pop by with the tank anytime… happy to donate/pay.
