Hey everyone. I got a Hyperfire yesterday and posted a few pics around of it. I thought I would share here so you guys could see it as well.

 

Here is the overview with clip comparisons.

Thank you for the internal pictures they help a lot. This is very interesting how it works. I love the way the lock for the jam door works.

Thanks for cross-posting. 

 

Do you notice increased accuracy compared to your average flywheel blaster, given the canted flywheels?

 

Do the conveyor cleats seem to push the darts (i.e. catch the back of them), or do they more drag the darts along via friction? If it's friction do you think that the "pusher" would work with a thicker belt with consistent ridges (like so) rather than one with 2 or 3 cleats? I ask because I saw some people concerned that the belt might wear.

Yes, but is is possible that under the rubber, they reinforced the belt similar to this? If they didn't, could you place a small sheet of polycarbonate to either reinforce or replace the cleat?

I'll try, but only in the future will we find out.

Thank you for that detailed view! I had a difficult time to find any information at all because of the "other" Hyperfire

So this is basically a flywheelblaster (it sounded a lot more quiet in those first toy fair videos) with a feeding belt instead of a pusher? should be easy to tune :-D

What does that fancy resistor setup do at the flywheel cage?

that looks pretty cool, can it only use the drum mags or can it use the standard mags?

thanks

I wasn't checking for accuracy since the fps isn't high enough to cause Koosh darts to have inconsistent flight paths. I know chanted wheels on the snikkas cage add accuracy.
I think the belt works by both. There are two or three ridges in the belt. The rubber grips the dart while the small ridge pushes it along. I don't think that this. Belt will easily wear down. It seemed like great rubber.

Make Test Battle On youtube did a review on the canted flywheel setup and it works for slower FPS ratings. Higher the rating got the more the spin of the dart made it spiral off track. Looks to be a potential failed attempt at accurate darts. Better understanding as these get an official release.
