    Hey Guys

    Been trying to find the post on a DIY tank computer that was about a few years ago. The person that designed it used to or might still be on the forum and eventually open sourced it.

    The only thread I found is this one : http://opencoral.com/
    But I can not get to it from work (bloody firewall)

    Any info?

    Ta,

    Ross

    Ross - I have the stuff on my laptop at home. I will send you this per email. Could you please PM me your private email address? And no - he is not active online anymore, unfortunately.

    A few people tried manufacturing this controller in a cheap enough fashion, but it seems that no-one was able to.

    The last people who tried this was someone from Stellenbosch (I think it was Franske - not 100% sure) and Max - neither of the 2 okes came back saying that they were able to get it manufactured at all - let alone manufactured for cheap :(
