Hey guys,

Sight problem the MF-06 unit experiences a extremely loud ear piercing whine that after a while makes me experience nausea. I have another Tamiya tank and it does not do this. It is unbearably loud. This is without the speaker plugged in, if I plug it in it is even worse and at zero volume

Doubled checked with the KT and the normal speed controller sound is there but not this

It is kinda like a ringing in the ear sound, not happy :(

Any ideas?

Hmm sounds like it could something to with the volume pot on the board and its getting interference back through to the speaker...  ??? ??? If everything is plugged in correctly which I assume it is as you know what you are doing.... ;) ;) Also does the sound disappear when you up the volume...?? I have a KT with an external volume pot which makes a similar noise when you turn the volume right down, cause the wires aren't shielded from electrical interference... Failing that I would contact who you brought it from and see if you have any luck having it replaced... they do have a life warranty but unfortunately its only if you buy it from your country of origin.... AKA Here, but its worth a try mate.

Cheers Ken

Hey Ken,

Thanks the reply mate, my ears are still ringing. It is like you went to a rock concert and you wake up the next morning with ringing ears!! Seriously that bad.

The sound is still there regardless of volume but obvious it drowns out with the increase in engine volume.

Ok its official I am deaf..... :o :o
I could just hear the noise you were talking about its definitely feedback through the system.. from what and why I am unsure... try a different battery plug and remove the twin plug set up maybe that might have something to do with.
Hopefully someone else on here will have a better idea.....???

It's the same in my JP and that's a new one . The noise can be compared to an old type flash from camera loading after taking a photo if you all follow me . I had the same high Pitch sound in my Tam leo

Hey Guys,

Here is my sixth video in the Tamiya 1/16 JS-2 build series. In this video I assemble the spare fuel tanks, make the photo etch handles, simulate some battle damage and finish the details on the upper hull

Hello Steve , when it came to fitting the sprocket caps , rather than just gluing them on (?) I'll be using magnets like this - They ain't going anywhere now ! . :D
