Hello nerfers!

So I've snagged a rapidstrike for christmas, and I was planning on making it into a dart hose, min 10 dps. I already have a 3s 2200mah Lipo lying around from another mod, so I'd rather use that instead of ordering another lipo, what motors are the 'best' when it comes to the flywheels and the pusher mech? I would prefer not to do any shell mods to accommodate for the motors, so 130 sized only. 

Thanks in advance.

I think blastertech rates the MTB Rhinos on a 3s lipo at 10 dps. Probably your best bet for 130 motors is to get three of them.

Edit: they have them at 9 dps so if you need it over 10 dps get a honey badger for the pusher motor.

Ryan at MTB did a great video on this subject, I'll refer you to him.

I know you said 130 only, but I used all Hellcats on my Rapidstrike and they're the nuts.

Flywheels rev up in about 150ms and the pusher cycle takes about 110ms.

Dynamic braking is also great. No pusher overshoot at all and flywheels come to a complete stop in about 100ms.

The motors don't really protrude too far through the shell. You could patch the holes with some styrene if you don't have access to a 3d printer.

Ask me questions about electronics, Arduino, and 3D printing

This! I initially bought rhinos to put in mine and changed my mind and ordered the hellcats and will just use a rhino for the pusher. I think on my next rapidstrike I'm gonna try the Xtreme 180s.

Yeah, after posting on reddit as well as nerfhaven, I'm going with a triple Hellcat setup in my rapidstrike, ordered them 2 days ago.

 

The motors don't really protrude too far through the shell. You could patch the holes with some styrene if you don't have access to a 3d printer.

Luckily, I do have access to one, however I haven't found any stl files of 180 motor covers for the flywheels and pusher.

 

Quick pre build question, how do 180 motors stay in the cage? Stock cage doesn't seem to have the holes for screws that aftermarket ones do.

Thanks.

Answering this belatedly, but 180 motors fit tightly enough in the stock motor cage that you won't need any hardware to keep them in place. They're an interference fit and won't rotate in place due to their shape.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

I use the jam door as a motor cover, and a bottle cap from your brewery of choice makes an excellent pusher motor cover.
