MAKO 2018 Battle Unit Connection Examples

Post by phyrephish » Sun Aug 26, 2018 11:46 pm

Below are pics of the connection of MAKO2018 to several different battle unit options.

PLEASE NOTE: MAKO can be used with practically any available 1/16 RC Tank battle unit. The Battle Unit connection is duplicated on MAKO and is present in BOTH JST-XH (2.5mm pitch) and JST-PH (2.0mm pitch).

Heng Long and Taigen use XH (2.5mm) whilst most aftermarket units use PH (2.0mm). Tamiya are odd as they use Molex style 2.0mm pitch connectors at the MFU and 2.5mm connectors at the bottom of the battle unit.

The pin outs for the battle unit are clearly marked on either the top or underside of the MAKO board (see bottom post pic). For any BU not listed here it is a simple matter of matching the corresponding pins of the battle unit to that of MAKO.
