This is a question about using the Nightfinder's switch directly behind the trigger,and throwing it into a Rayven. Would it work so you if you re-wired it, you wouldn't have to press down the revving trigger, and just held down the firing trigger half-way, or does that move the dart-pusher forward some to? Also, would the Nightfinder's switch have enough contact area for this to work?

I would say so, I dunno, but it just might work! Great idea! (though the rayven jammed 43 times during my last game)

Off topic for a sec: Your rayven jammed because when you went in to mod it (if you did) most likely your fly wheel system got off center with the dart pusher. We had a big problem solution discussion about this on the HVZ forums. Back on topic: It might work, but you have to be careful because most likely you will start to push your dart in while revving even if it doesn't take long to rev up. In addition, it may cause a jam in the flywheel chamber. Sounds like its a multi test project, but it is a good idea.

Sounds like what a lot of people do to their Barricades. If you place the switch close enough to the trigger it shouldn't give you many problems, by close enough I mean like a hair trigger.

attach an insulation support from the trigger to the rev trigger through the inside. BUT it may cause a dart to slightly go into the flywheel which is going to mes up your range. if you just want to keep everything running at once check drac's tutorial on youtube to make it rev on just a switch. Good Luck :)

It's very doable, jut make sure the circuit is completed before the dart is pushed to the wheels.

I don't recommend this at all. Drac does some fine mods but his rayven guide has 2 big issues.
The trigger lock he took out that prevents you from pushing darts unless the wheels are spinning also prevent you from pushing darts into dead flywheels which causes jams. On top of that there really is no benefit to being able to pull the trigger without the wheels running.

Installing an on/off switch and just having the motors run all the time is not a good idea, especially when using higher voltage. If I remember correctly the rayven does have a thermoresistor. This means that the longer you have the motors running the more resistance the thermistor will give as it heats up which will reduce range.
