So unfortunately my Rapid Strike died today .. Some kind of electrical fault. not sure what yet.

 

I should just buy another second hand rapid strike OR a new Hyperfire BUT the Hyperfire is just to hideous to look at and is huge so i can't bring myself to buy one.

 

Im considering replacing all of the logic within the RS ( now broken ) with an arduino which enables me to perform a few task i've always felt the RS should have.. EG pull trigger when fly wheels are stopped ... it starts the motors then starts shooting. And to OVER volt (14 +) all the motors for like a second to reduce spool up time.

 

The above should all be do able BUT the rapid strike is not accurate at all my sons Raven is much better. I see the new Hyperfire has a new cadge which has offset wheel to help rifle the rounds. I dont believe this is a new idea but it's new to Nerf.  I really want a off set cage to help with accuracy.

 

Does any one know if the Hyperfire's motor cage will drop right into the RS ? 

 

Also what i really want to know is if any one has a 3d model of the cage that i could 3d print i know there are these metal ones BUT these are incredibly expensive especially if you include the postage to New Zealand. so i'd just like to 3d print some.. Also a while back someone in germany tested what was the right offset but i can't find that anymore

"This cage was deign over the course of about 3 months with consolation from from Ryan from Make Test Battle and Tom from Foam Data Services as well as others."

 

"Dude, I'm sorry you are so hung up on flywheels that you feel like you need to make this.  Really, really sorry."

Thanks guys..

 

Not sure whats wrong with fly wheel blasters other than the sound.

I have some plunger ones but i'd take an auto one any day .. with a plunger one you have one shot then you have to cock it and that throws of your aim.. Auto you  just fling them till you hit them... Also much easier when your on the move shooting with one hand

And arduino will do exactly what you want, minus the trigger part. That's caused by the rev switch mechanism, unless your really confident with your modding skills I would just let that be.

Yeah man i've just done the code 400 lines.

 

Powered from a 4s

 

Features

 

  • Hig Low mode... 3s mode or 2s mode . this is cos 3s has to much power when using close range at 5 year olds.

 

  • When the trigger is pulled and you have NOT pulled the rev motor switch it will apply 4s  for like a second to rev up the motors then start firing

 

  • When the trigger is pushed it will apply 4S to the pusher for like 0.5s to get the shot off as soon as possible ( 0.5sconds might be to long )

 

  • Auto fire mode as normal

 

  • Semi auto mode..  Assuming you haven't pulled the motor rev trigger it will keep the fly wheel spinning for upto 5 seconds after the shot to ensure the motors dont start slowing down between trigger pulls.

I have some code that might be useful, depending on how you make the blaster. of course it'll need modification to work for you.

https://drive.google...OUU?usp=sharing

though its behavior still separates flywheel trigger and actual trigger into two stages and programming-locks firing into the condition that the flywheel switch is being pushed.

 

these arduino code files are from my stingrayven project.
