In Topic: Best flywheels for canted cages..?

13 June 2018 - 12:20 PM

The best canted cage in terms of accuracy (Dr. Snikkas Cage) uses extremely concave wheels. It helps that the wheels were specifically designed for the cage though. Concave wheels are the way to go all around in my findings. I use the snikkas wheels in a specially designed straight ofp cage and they are more accurate than any other straight cage I have other than the FDL.

 

Concave would be a good idea for the non-canted wheel, but would probably fuck off the accuracy on the canted.  My suggestion would be flat in the canted position and concave in the flat position.

Check out the Colorado Nerf Club. They are in the Denver area. They have held wars for the last couple of months. I think they are getting around a dozen players per war but they will keep growing. https://www.facebook...00053890115072/


In Topic: Brass/Aluminum Guids

Why not just go with the morpheus cage in a 41.5mm. It will get better velocity than your 42mm cage with the added accuracy of a guide. 9/16ths seems to be the standard but 19/32nds could work.


In Topic: New Fang Revamped Motors

The issue with most IMR's is that they only supply around 5-10 amps per battery. They really shouldn't be used with any aftermarket motors. The revamps are 28 amps at stall per motor (so 56 amps per set). Three IMR's will not gives it enough amps in a stall situation. This will cause your batteries to be at greater risk of fire or frying your switch. IMR's are usually poorly manufactured and aren't really made for this application. If you are stuck with a 14500 form factor look at LIFE4POS batteries. They are much safer chemistry but still aren't optimal for your setup. $200 for a stryfe is pretty crazy. I usually build mine for around $60-$70. Also the revamps would spin at around 55,000 rpms on three IMR's which is why too fast for every brushed motor cage except the eclipse (Skip the eclipse until the 2nd gen wheels come out)

 

TLDR: Skip IMR's due to fire risk and go to LIFE4POS if stuck on 14500 size. They are safer chemistry. Use 7.4 volts. 


In Topic: Accufake darts

Accufakes work great in flywheelers and loose breeches. They are terrible in brass and cpvc. The cheap ones on lightake and ebay have been hit and miss as far as glue quality. I have had a lot of them pop off on the first shot. They are really not any better than waffles. Personally I like mengun style darts as they work in everything except a regular pvc wye hopper set up. They have great glue also.
