noticed your going with the servonaut smb the track sound is a nice touch, but the whining sound of the hydros is a little much in my opinion. does it have to be hooked up to all stick movements? or can you just assign it to certain functions?

You can lower the whining noise down by adjusting the gains thru the radio.
You can hear on mine with SMB. https://youtu.be/_OEh9n2gQKg
1 valve movement no whine.
2 valve movements small whine
3 valve movement 100% whine

nice work on tuning that system up.. sounds great and I like the constant higher revs vs revs to stick movements just more real to me. I gotta make me one of those stands holding your machine. Mite have to hit ya up form some programing tips if thats cool.

It actually sounds a little better now compared to that youtube video after installing the SM-EQ Equalizer.

Looking forward to hear your comments about the Macom hydraulics. Do you have any comparison between their components and Premacon??

On June 10 my left track gearbox broke down. I contacted Eagle Machinery directly and on June 25 the parts were delivered. Super service! I also bought new springs/ bolts for the tension wheels.
