This instructable will show you how to install a DBC/DBU IR battle system in a 1/16 RC tank!

Step 1: Parts/Tools list

1. 1/16 RC Tank (I will be using a Heng Long KV-1)
2. DBC (I will be using a DBC RC2HL) http://darkith.dyndns.org/~darkith/html/dbc.shtml
3. DBU

This requires the most basic of tools to complete.

Small screwdrivers
Wire cutters
Soldering iron/gun
Solder
Zip ties (I consider these tools)
Exacto knife, Dremel or some other preferred cutting tool.

DBC/DBU guides

DBU Build: http://darkith.dyndns.org/~darkith/html/dbu_inst.shtml

<p>Hello great job thanks, I am extremely new to RC tank.. could you please explain to me.<br> I want to buy this Infrared receiving device </p><p><a href="http://www.aliexpress.com/item/henglong-3818-1-3839-1-3838-1-3818-1-ect-rc-tank-1-16-parts-free/1368174062.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.aliexpress.com/item/henglong-3818-1-383...</a><br>do I plug this into my Remote control receiver or do I need some other chip system like the DBU or the DBC could you tell me what DBU and DBC. I have 2 rc tanks without infrared device on. and, I am extremely bad with electronic so I rather buy these devices and plug in rather than custom build my own. Please help and I hope you understand my questions. </p>
<p>That is only the IR receiver &quot;Apple&quot;. You would need this http://www.ozarmour.com/store/heng-long-infrared-add-on-kit-for-1-16-scale-tank.html. This is only for Henglong, Mato tanks and will not work with Tamiya IR battle systems like the DBC does. </p>
<p>cool</p>
<p>Thank you</p>
