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
