In Topic: Stryfe FPS at different Voltages

29 January 2015 - 07:15 PM

Yes and no. Voltage determines how fast the motors spin, but mAh is part of how the current is determined. If a battery has too low of a discharge rate ©, and a low mAh, it will have too low of current (Amps) to adequately spin up the motors, and can even damage the battery. Motors can draw a LOT of amperage. a set of 180's hit 40+ amps at stall I believe. To determine discharge rate of your battery pack, take the C rating and multiply by the Ah (mAh convetered to Ah, ex: 2000 mAh = 2 Ah) of the battery, this gives you the max amps that the battery can safely output.

Take this battery: http://www.hobbyking..._Lipo_Pack.html 25c * 2.2Ah = 55amps. However, it has a burst rating of 35c, so it's max burst amps is 77amps.

Thanks for the clarification and explanation on that. I had heard how it was related to rev time and drop between shots but this makes more sense now. Still curious as to why the disparity exists with the above data and what I did the other day. Possibly just flywheel build-up but I would be surprised if that alone accounts for a 15-20 fps difference when voltage is even lower than the above data

As someone who doesn't know too much about batteries this seems to suggest that mAh plays a big part in FPS performance. I say that only because we measured my friends stryfe (rewired on a 9.6v 2000 mAh nimh pack) and he was consistently getting 110 FPS.

In Topic: The Unofficial Koosh vs. Voberry Thread

I was about to say there is no reason you should be having that kind of issue with voberries for sure FVJ's. As far as koosh accuracy in flywheels I haven't been able to find a difference so I go with voberries since they are cheaper.

Do people have a method usually for measuring dart accuracy is a reliable way? <- This is meant to stay on topic as a comparison of koosh vs voberry

I am in full support of the voberry over the koosh. Koosh aren't bad by any means but according to a chrono my blaster get a little better fps with the voberry and the foam seems to be a better quality so I have had less issues with compression in the clip that leads to jamming. Accuracy is equal from my experiences in HVZ / a little bit of nerf war. Voberry also has the advantage of being more versatile when it comes to using them in springs vs flywheel; blasters whereas I would only use koosh in a flywheel. Just my two cents :)

In Topic: Rayven vs Elite Rayven

Stock the elite is obviously better but in terms of modding (this is coming from others in my community not me as I hate rayvens) the older model is better at handling increased voltage without as much internal replacement. Really though if you are doing a voltage upgrade you might as well upgrade the wires and probably the motors anyway to make ensure a long lifespace of the blaster :)
