So I am about to start working on a big project and I have some questions:
1. I want to replace the motors and I don't care having to modify the shell, so can someone recommend me good 180 motors?
2. This is actually related to the first question, what LiPo battery should I use with these motors?
3. Do I need to coat the flywheels? if I do what should I use?
4. Also I decided to replace the wires and switches I order for the flywheels to reach max rpm faster so what wires and switches should I use?
Also don't refer to the cost because I have a big budget for this project.
Thanks for the help.
2. If you have your heart set on Lithium you should get a Turnigy 2s pack. I'd recommend either sticking with 14500 cells or finding a 2s pack that can still fit inside the battery tray.
3. No, natural wear and use will coat your flywheels with miniscule blue residue, no need to do anything artificial.
4. 18awg wire, 15A/240V switch.
A personal Stryfe!
Featured in my Detailing Article, http://propweaponscoop.com/…/custom-lettering-personalizat…/, I just got this wicked monster fully wired up.
180 motors, 18awg rewire, new micrsowitch, voltmeter, and UV LED Firefly tech.
I concur. We need an Ohio war soon, and we may as well give Cincy a chance to respond and get this set in stone before doing our own thing.
Cincy has a war every single weekend, if you can't be bothered to show up it's not their fault.
Looking forward to this! Can't wait until you get the date pinned down.
Hammershots with major bodywork. They won't be to scale, but you might find them more useful.
When you say, "Need help making" I doubt there is anybody who will be able to guide you through the bodywork and aesthetics of a build like this.
If you want it done right commission a prop builder, unless of course you decide to give it your best go.
Edit: I have not heard of Overwatch, (Oh the Irony) so thank you for the explanation.
It's best if you just read those on your own, as users are periodically warned/banned for linking to their youtube/blog/personal site. If it's not hosted on the Nerfhaven domain the administration doesn't want anything to do with it, which honestly makes sense. Their goal is to build Nerfhaven as an open source directory, not use it to promote individuals.
But since were on the subject, here is an amazing site that showcases a few very talented artists. Nerfenstein, Hypercats Network, Landgrave Customs, and Meadowhawk Designs to name a few.
Anything made by Devcon is most likely methacrylate; Loctite makes some as well, look for the term 'Plastic Bonder' on the package.
Before you buy any product take a look at the back of the packaging, if it doesn't list Methacrylate under active ingredients don't buy it.
Although the Guinness World Record website is currently experiencing malfunctions so this cannot be confirmed.
The actual record title is "Toy Pistol Fight"
Still, had a good time in Cincinnati. The next day, Sunday, Father Time and the rest of the Cinci hoodlums hosted an actual war. Their little shindigs are always enjoyable, and I never regret going. Except that one time it rained, fuck you rain.
It does do a fine job of clearing a 20rd clip.
It does get through a twenty.
I'm glad we can agree. I, too, own a Rapid Madness and can concur that it does indeed cycle an entire 20rd clip.
If were feeling adventurous I could do a chronograph session and calculate average fps drop per dart fired, but I'd rather not. If you really crave the knowledge head on over to the Rapid Madness thread and we can banter over the finer points. For now, lets keep this thread about the Dynamag.
I did not apply tape to the clip as I am doing my best to not modify the clips and leave them factory original.
Fair enough, I just thought a clip mod would be the easiest for newbies to correct the feeding problem.
Seriously you need to write to BOOMco, tell them to put stronger springs in. Who knows, they may even give you some kickback for catching the flaw, the sooner the better.
Quick and simple fix for a feature that should have worked in the first place. Here's hoping your efforts get noticed by BOOMco and they start manufacturing them with stronger springs.
Did you happen to try a thin layer of tape on the edges of the clips? This was the go-to fix for the Magstrike, just wondering if that method still hold some merit; it would be a lot easier for the common consumer to build up the clips than replace the springs.
A must-do for any serious player.
Did you 'cure' it in the PVC? That is to say, you then removed the pex after it had been straitened out or did you use it while it was inside the PVC?
I have used it before, but I just ahoved it in 1/2 pvc to overcome the curving in it.
Was it pex tubing?
Assuming this is what OP has found.
Pex, or Sharkbite, doesn't make the best barreling material. They are shipped, and often sold, rolled up on spools. The tubing is fairly malleable and almost always retains the curvature of the spool making it useless for longer barrels... unless your trying to fire around corners and pull off some "Wanted" BS.
After a dozen or so darts going through the wheels you'll get a natural build-up of blue foam residue that will achieve optimal grip.
No need to put anything on the wheels, just run a few clips through your blaster.
This method has been around since people started modifying blasters, please don't attribute absolutely everything to your mythical YouTube god. According to that logic, he invented Silicone grease, and teflon tape, and Epoxy putty, and paintjobs!
A common problem is that you've applied too much Silicone grease. Remove your catch and plunger tube, completely wipe off the catch and clean out the catch notch in the plunger tube.
Just a shot in the dark, but it's something that happens quite a bit.
All I can tell you is to open it up and compare it to the pictures below.
If you want a Nerf blaster, theN-Strike Magstrikeis about as close as they come.
Silicone molds make heads in the hundreds, and in a much safer material, without the need to rip apart a perfectly good MEGA dart
My next order of 1,000 was from YuToys, and they were the blue foam shafts. These darts were of much better glue quality, but their shafts had a large fluctuation in diameter. Some were .49 some were .51, making these abnormal darts really shitty in springer and airpowered blasters.
I am of the opinion that there are more than one manufacturer of these darts. These manufacturers are most likely only selling on eBay, sell strait to the customer for the highest profit.
For each of my 1,000 bulk buys I contacted the eBay seller and was given a deal both times. I paid just over 9¢ a dart.
If you can't find any at a brick and mortar store here is a link is purchase some from an online retailer.
