I'm doing my second rapidstrike overhaul and since I'm using Shark nsr 40's, I wanted to do electronic braking. Does anyone have a wiring diagram of what they do or something equally helpful?

On the flywheels? You'd just have to have the motors short to ground whenever you aren't pulling the rev trigger. The pusher motor is designed with motor braking to make sure it doesn't coast too far after firing. So if you look at a normal RS wiring diagram and examine how the wiring for the pusher works carefully, you should be able to apply that to the flywheels.

Not sure if that brakes the flywheels but it does brake the pusher

J0D0CAST on youtube did motor braking in his rapidstrike Ak-47 build and he shows the electronics diagram. Hope this helps!

If I'm not mistaken, the stock switches in the RS can't handle the amperage requirements for SHARKS. They may work for a while, but you'll likely have failure in the near future.

BlasterSmiths have a kit for upgrading the switches.

Or if you are any good at electronics, you could look into driving MOSFETs with the stock switches, and driving the SHARKS with the MOSFETs. Motor braking is a little more difficult that method though.

Alternatively, you could probably find some cheap 12V relays on ebay that could handle the motors. Same concept for control, stock switches drive the relays, and relays drive the motors. Motor braking would probably be easier to wire going this route.

Good luck! - Gimmick

I have the Blastersmiths kit and I will finish wiring today. I'll see how it goes.
