In Topic: Best motors for a rapidstrike on 3S Lipo?

22 December 2016 - 11:38 PM

Yeah, after posting on reddit as well as nerfhaven, I'm going with a triple Hellcat setup in my rapidstrike, ordered them 2 days ago.


The motors don't really protrude too far through the shell. You could patch the holes with some styrene if you don't have access to a 3d printer.

Luckily, I do have access to one, however I haven't found any stl files of 180 motor covers for the flywheels and pusher.


Quick pre build question, how do 180 motors stay in the cage? Stock cage doesn't seem to have the holes for screws that aftermarket ones do.

Nope, the connectors on the XT60 will go either way, the triangle is just to indicate it.

So is it fair to say your modded Stampede shoots more accurately than a modded...Rapidstrike or Stryfe? If so, how big of an accuracy difference do you see?

Using FVJ darts from china, at 20m, I get my shots within a 9 to 10 inch group, and with my rayven, (180 motors, lipo ect) I get them in about 11 or 12 inch group. Its not all to much, but in game it feels more accurate and gives me an edge.

Pretty sure a stampede does have a catch.


(the following is all 2nd hand info)

Stampedes have a breech so they are more likely to jam than any flywheeler. Probably even more so if you try to create a sealed breech.

All electric springers use a gearbox. Any spring upgrades will definitely strain the gears and, if a gear or even the gear box itself are damaged, there are not common replacements



As a proud owner of a stampede and a 3d printer, I can back that up. The breech of the stampede starts to jam at higher voltages upwards of 16v, and the gears are not made for modders, as I've had to print over 3 new sets of gear out of abs plastic. Planning to get metal gears soon.


Slightly more on topic, the decision between flywheel or elec springers comes down to your playstyle. if you rather to have more darts and less accuracy, flywheels. however if you want more continuous, accurate fire, go springer.

Right, thanks for the advice!
