    Can hull recoil be turned off on Tongde?
    Yes.

      Bearings: can’t tell for sure, but they spin very freely.

      Recoil: haven’t tried, but the manual mentions it.
      Twenty six tanks, and not done yet!

            The Churchill is quite a mountain goat! Here it is eating up rough terrain at the San Diego Tank Battles event on April 28th.

              That Churchill ran beyond expectations. I was impressed at how well it ate up the hill climbs and ravines. It put every other tank to shame.

                I am not as quick and up to date on new products as many of our members. Anyway, my Churchill finally arrived from China yesterday. I am thrilled.

                      Our hobby is growing. I am excited. Our SoCal RC tank club is growing too.

                          I was about to take out the stock IR bulb to replace it with my powerful aftermarket bulb. I then decided to test it. It reached about 50 feet to the target. I will just leave it there for now and play it at the small battlefield in the future.

                            I finished. I weathered it a little bit. I will let the fighting weather the rest of it next month. Thanks to Bob, it now has a nice set of decals on its armors.

                                The nice thing is that it doesn't have the BB feature anymore. So the size of the barrel is now more accurate.
