Okay, so I've loaded fresh new batteries into my unmodded Rapidstrike, (standard not XD), and I go out to use it. After a few minutes without problems, I tried to rev the motors but they wouldn't power up! Still has not worked. A few days later, I loaded a different set of batteries and it revved once or twice but then didn't accelerate. What Should I do? No mods exept for adjustable stock and removing the rubber dart curtain. Checked all locks and nothing should be keeping it from revving. Please help as this is my favorite gun.

Are you using some kind of rechargeable batteries, or regular Cs?

 

Do the batteries seem warm at all after being in there/using them?

 

I'm wondering if there's some kind of a short.

Could be a wiring issue, or possibly the thermistor has failed.

 

Good opportunity to open it up and replace the rubbish wire!

I use regular C's. I'll try to open it up and see what I can find.

Open it up and see if maybe something got in the battery tray causing a short. As others said it's a good opportunity to open the blaster and rewire
