Model makers, like evil scientists, and/or bombers have a “signature” when it comes to their electrical designs. When you look “behind” the curtain or inside the model of any RC model there are certain styles inherit or specific to a builder. It doesn’t infer the only way to do it; rather it accomplishes a task needed that can be easily modified on the fly during events for specific purposes. The components they are familiar with afford a wide array of options depending on the venue or application. If you wonder why I used specific components then feel free to ask.
The components I have used here are the CF3 by ACS Sound Systems. 2 Vellemen MK114 Optical organ kits. The JR12 2.4GHZ remote control system, the R2 builders group voltage distribution board, Custom Weapons light by Dale Wheat, custom Larson scanning LED lights for the shoulder by Dale Wheat, Vantec RDFR32 motor controller, multiple Pico light controllers for RC receivers, 3 Batteries (2 12v 80amp/hr batteries for the drive motor and 1 12v 100amp/hr battery for the lights, sound, servos and weapons). All of my Storms & Daleks have hidden power control systems and their own rapid charging capabilities.
The lighting control system is synced to the sound and fire control mechanism.
