Anyway the blasters has some potential but maybe seem worth it just for re-fitting internals into those cool shells. the springs look small enough to come buy at Lowes or whatever. Might sacrifice on the one-handed capability. The vortex pistols are Hasbro's last chance to push a small vortex blaster.
I see potential, but it may not be worth it.
My question is will I get higher pressures or faster filling of the tank if I use the needle attachment or just stick with the tubing?
The needle has a really small opening, maybe 3/4 of a milimeter or larger. The tubing I'm using has roughly a 1 1/2 milimeter (judging by the needle size) inner diameter.
I can make an adapter from a 1/4 OD 1/8 ID standard barbed fitting from Mc Master. This will provide maybe 1 milimeter of room around the needle.
So will the needle provide more preasure or more airflow? Or will the tubing alone be better.
I am sorry to say that I have to change the date of the war. My flight was changed without notice and I'm unable to play on the 22nd. The war is now the 29th of June. The war date will not be modified again.
Damn, I cant make it now. The 22nd was right in between two trips I have planned. Sry
I know I am a little late to the game but I have some questions.
1. Write-up? You have made several improvements and I think all of us would like to see one.
2. Templates for the 3D printed parts? Files maybe?
3. What is the printer you are using to print the parts?
4. Could you tension the tubing more to produve better results?
I choose you, Duke Wintermaul as the leader of humanities last army.
also, If I had an E.A.T I would go diddle zombies and annoying 5 year olds with it,
Really man, you don't know how annoying and terrifying those 5 year olds are. It's crazy man.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I choose you...
I'm looking for some higher quality Tamiya's to do some testing,
Tamya Plasma dash motors. SG nerf uses them to compare stock motors. I did a thread on them. Just search "Nerf gun motors, problems and solutions"
They are very good, I use them I'n my barricades. I run 9v on them and they work fine and have been for over 2 months now.
This is probably nigh on a necro but after having these motors die on me twice I had to ask. Has anyone else had a pair of these die after maybe 1-2 hours of total use? Both times I reopened my shell and tried spinning the flywheels just to see a huge amount of brush sparking through the endcap of the motors and maybe 50 RPM on the flywheels. I removed everything from the circuit but the rev switch and kept the stock 22 gauge wire. I ran them off of a 7.2V ni-cd pack most of the time and tested a 9.6V pack for a couple of minutes as well. I know nothing was burned out because I have since dropped stock motors again on the same wiring. After having the same thing happen twice I'm beginning to wonder if I'm just incredibly unlucky or if I've done something wrong both times.
The motors have "died" on me for several minutes on me after less than a minute of revving with three ultrafires and normal batteries, even with two dead batteries instead of the normal batteries it dies pretty fast. I have gone the route of one ultrafire and it works fine and I've kept it revving for a little under 5 minutes with no issues. How much use have your motors seen? Mine haven't seen that much.
This is most likely because the motors are brushed. We are putting these motors in situations never intended and they are burning out. If you can open the motor or find replacement brushes on the Internet you can fix them. All brushed motors were out at some point, these seam to wear out much faster than others.
Maybe 3 trust fires is too much? Maybe it is intended to run at stock voltage or a little more?
Mainly because N-strike/elite clips require breaches, which have a tendency to jam. A belt would allow a much higher number of darts to be carried than in any clip, and any type of dart to be used if the belt system was designed for it. If it was made into a loop, it'd also allow reloading on the fly; it'd basically just be a flexible turret.
If it is going to be like a turret then you are essentially making a chain-blazer. One disadvantage of using chains would be carrying capacity, if you have 3 chains of 100 rounds each (one in the blaster, two on your vest or belt) you would have chains swinging around and it would be heavy. Even if you compacted them they would take up a lot of space. With a hopper/RCSB you could have the same 300 darts is a pouch or bandolier that would be 1/2 the weight and you could shove darts in several at a time, rather than reloading a whole chain.
Now, because this thread was started on hoppers, I think we should post about the original subject, not on potential reloading mechanisms.
I like Slug's design with the sliver of plastic to direct the dart, but I think we can print it in 1 piece or mod current wyes with wire or zip tie.
If we are going to make custom wyes, why not incorporate special features. Instead of going from PVC to ramp, why not incorporate a funnel to take advantage of the Venturi effect?
Or make holders on the side for extra barrels so if one gets jammed, you can switch it fast and not worry about clearing the jam until you are in a safe zone or after the battle?
The darts that are packaged with the Range Master were stiffer and have a heavier tip than normal darts.
I find that darts packaged with 2012 early release (summer of 2012) elite products (refill packs, blasters and "mission kits") are stiffer than current darts.
I have drawn up some concept sketches of how I think the design might go. The ring of pipes you can see will all hold dart tip-to-tail, like a hopper but bigger. This is obviously a very rough sketch, I made it just now.
Great, you made a PowerStrike 48
I advise you use a magazine instead of a turret like thing, makes reloading easier.
You could cut off the magwell of a recon/retaliator or a rampage to use.
I'm pretty sure that no HVZ organizations allow stefans, so if that is the case, hoppering it is pointless, because streamline darts do not work in hoppers.
You could build a tagger hopper. Or you could use an RSCB.
Both options have high RoF and are easy to reload.
Cant wait till this comes to the U.S.
Also, at 1.5 meters long, that is awful lot of barrel drag affecting the dart. Will the barrel be tight?
About the plunger design, I think a bolt-action (similar to longshot and longstrike) will better suit modders and XBLA 12yr COD looozers.
Iron sights? Damn.
I like the idea of different discs, especially the way the Revonix has the multi-cylinder drum,
you could have the Ranger++ in one cylinder, the Quick Shot in another and the regular in the third.
My theory is there are gears inside that the hammer turns as it's pulled down similar to the rough cut.
I think your mistaken, in the video the OP posted on his site the tester person pulled the hammer back, then pulled the trigger and fired a dart. there was no plunger priming or visual movement, just the hammer moving.

Sorry about the picture quality, camera was acting up
Thanks for the clarification - how would you folks go about opening up the Vortex range? What is it lacking? Did you folks like the Diatron internals? (Dual-disc technology)
In my opinion the diatom internals were terrible, only left handed priming and it was a massive pain to wield. To open the line up I think there should be a less clunky, less sucky full auto blaster. (the ntron was terrible) maybe a system like the praxis turned full auto?
1. Is it moderatly heat resistant? (I.E. does it melt like crap foam)
2. What is the fit in PETG? (I am going to use it for an AT3K with 12" PETG barrels)
3. How dense is it? (Soft, Moderate, Hard)
Ryan's guide does not include Log Home Help foam.
If there is a similar thread about PETG I think this can slide.
I've noticed since the switch to the new servers, that my personal pic is not saving properly. It was gone after the migration, and switched it out, and it stayed for about a day or two, then it was gone again, and now it won't take it anymore.
I have too. I just re-uploaded the pic and it stayed. I have also noticed significantly lower load times since the server change.
Going by the Retaliator/Rampage early finds... I would say March. I got my Retaliator in Early June, and the release was September. I just got a Rough Cut like a week ago, so by that logic (since no "official" date other than 2013 has been said) I would go with March. But that's just me.
Did you get it online or in a store? If you bought it localy then what store did you get it from?
