I have worked out all the sounds on the SFX-7,they are:
"Flaps" switch..... "ON"= Engine start/idle
                                x2=88mm w/fire command
                                x3=MG
note:Model Sounds Inc. did not provide a sound file for main gun elevation :(

KT sounds complete

I have a few details to add before the base coat......probably a few weeks?
I plan on doing a test drive over this weekend(will post a video).
I will probably skip the zimmerite as I have already added a few hull details and would be too hard to zimm around them,LOL.

Had some issues when updating firmware to 4.1.0.......getting support from Model Sounds

6/27-got everything back to working...almost......as it turn's out the 4.1.0 firmware release has some issues that Model Sounds is still trying to hammer out......hopefully by end of day I will be 100% on "sound". David Harrison has been very supportive and quick to respond so far....good support from Model Sounds Inc.

Update: A sound card issuesll resolved....all sounds working(even in "multi-sound")......now, to move to hull details and painting,stay tuned!Model Sounds Inc. gave very good customer support!

G'day Clyde1966 and welcome,the tiger in the background is an 6th scale field of armor tiger 1 which is basically a very large plastic static kit that can be converted to RC. jstrat's kit is like my kit (I have one too) it's an early produced kit and there are/were a few design laws with the RC conversion-power/transmission issues.
   I'm having the same frustration with the kit as jstrat has with his and am hoping that FOA will soon be releasing the power/transmission and suspension package soon.

   cheers,
              chappie.
