Awesome zombie blaster names

I need a name for my Stryfe mod. Since I will be using it in HvZ I'm thinking something zombie-themed. Any ideas?


Stryfe Barrel Extension

16 April 2015 - 01:15 PM

I'm looking for info on making a barrel extension for my stryfe. Emphasis on 'making'. I don't wanna buy any nerf crap. I could care less about aesthetics, idc if it looks ugly as sin. I want increased accuracy. I know I'll get a range reduction, but as long as it isn't too bad, I don't mind. I will be running a 4S, so I'll have FPS to burn. Might have to tone it down anyway so the HVZ mod will pass off on it. Yah, only one mod, Humans vs Zombies is still only a dozen or so strong at LSU. Trying to change that, without much luck. :(

What's your suggestions? How long, what diameter, etc. Would pvc work well? Thanks!

Where does this go??


Leaving a blaster cocked

Does leaving a spring powered blaster cocked all the time weaken the spring?

First Stryfe mod

10 April 2015 - 09:48 AM

I finally got my Stryfe mod done. I had to redo everything after I pushed the flywheels down too far and ruined the motors and flywheels and flywheel cage, but I learned from my mistake and it works now. I upgraded the switch, the wiring, added a pair of Mabuchi FK-180SH-3240 motors, and added a 7.4V 4000mAh LiPo. Is 4000mAh overkill?? Probably, but it's not worth the trouble to try to return it and I can't afford another battery.

There's not a huge increase in muzzle velocity, which I am fine with. In fact, I prefer it. Because before this, I used an OMW mod kit on my Strongarm, and at first I loved it. There was a very noticeable increase in power. But the thing is, the first times I tried it after modding were in my dorm room. The door I was shooting at was maybe ten feet away. Then I tested it out in a hallway. The accuracy (or lack thereof) was appalling. I couldn't hardly hit a normal size door from 30 feet away, the darts were corkscrewing that badly. So, in my opinion, unless you just want to hurt people with the darts at close range, or if you only want the intimidation factor of an insanely powerful blaster but don't actually care about being able to hit a target, increases in range and velocity are useless if they come at the expense of accuracy. I know it's a design issue with the darts and not the OMW kit or the Strongarm, but still.

I sorta fixed the Strongarm issue by slicing open the air hole on the dart heads and putting steel bb's into the hollow section. It slows the darts down and improves the accuracy a lot. And they don't seem to hurt any more than the regular darts + the modded Strongarm. Although I'm not really sure how it's better than using stock darts with a stock Strongarm. Maybe I just went full circle.

I got off topic there. Anyway, the main thing I got out of modding it is that with the heavier wire and better current capacity from the LiPo, I can now fire it as fast as I can pull the trigger, without the flywheel motors bogging down. I know I could get faster RoF with a modded RS but I don't really think I need that for HVZ, which is all I intend to use it for.

Here's pictures:

Nothing fancy or innovative, but I do feel proud of having tackled my first flywheel mod.
