I started with rm2's but after I added the lipo 2s, they didn't last long. Now I have honeybagger's in a aluminum cage with aluminum smooth flywheels. I also wired the motors up for motor braking

I also wanted the canted one. I ended up ordering a 3D printed Dr snickis one instead. I'll throw that one in this gun since it is my main flywheel test bed. I'll reuse the artifact in another flywheel gun.
I also tried a 19/32 brass barrel mod. I got no added accuracy worth noting and lost a ton of fps. I tried the artifact smooth wheels but the worker wheels performed better so they are back in this gun

Canted is no bueno. It wastes some of the flywheel's energy putting spin on the dart, which - if it actually works at all - only works for a given cant at a certain specific RPM with a certain specific dart mass. Otherwise, you'll end up with more whirlybirds or a simply less efficient setup.

I was aware of the RPM/whirllybird collation, that is part of why I wasn't considering any 3S combos. I guess it also makes sense that some of the engery that normally moves the dart forward would now be spent spinning it, what good is added range without accuracy? I mean, wouldn't there be a sweet spot where range reduction with added accuracy would = more tags at range?

Got a hold of a Chrony today and I am very pleased. A low of 108. A high of 132, and an average of 122. I used the best of my very used elite darts

Drs is twice the money or more.
Question to ask yourself, are you getting twice the speed/accuracy?
My guess is no.
So get what you want, its your money.
Just be happy with owning a $200+ nerf gun.

From full spin up, how long does it take for your flywheels to spin down with motor braking? Just curious to see if my use of a diode is achieving a similar result.
