Best motors for a rapidstrike on 3S Lipo?

19 December 2016 - 04:19 AM

Hello nerfers!

So I've snagged a rapidstrike for christmas, and I was planning on making it into a dart hose, min 10 dps. I already have a 3s 2200mah Lipo lying around from another mod, so I'd rather use that instead of ordering another lipo, what motors are the 'best' when it comes to the flywheels and the pusher mech? I would prefer not to do any shell mods to accommodate for the motors, so 130 sized only. 

Thanks in advance.

Stampede select fire

28 October 2016 - 11:22 PM

Hello nerfers!


So I had a idea to make a select fire stampede. My thoughts were to perhaps do it with an ardunio


So I was going to have a circuit where the negative wire of my 3s lipo is connected to the negative terminal of the motor, and the positive rail is going from my lipo would be connected to the collector of a transistor, with the ardunio hooked up to the base and the motor connected to the emitter. 


So when the trigger switch is activated, then the ardunio would send a signal to the base for a certain amount of time, then stop, the amount of time depending on a switch wired to the ardunio for the firing modes such as semi, burst and full auto. This would allow the current to flow from the collector to the emitter, making the motor run for a specific amount of time.


Sorry if that's not very clear, but what are your thoughts? Problems? Any help would be appreciated. (Especially with programming)



(forgot to include trigger switch in the diagram and explanation, it would be connected to the ardunio to control when it sends a signal)

3s Lipo connecters good enough for modded stampede?

19 October 2016 - 04:12 AM

Hi nerfers!


So I was getting tired of the weight and danger issues of running 10 AA batteries in my modded stampede and decided that I was going to make the switch to lipo. I've done some research and apparently some connectors for lipos will not work well and light on fire when used with high drain Nerf guns, such as the stampede. My question is, will the connecters that come stock on this lipo (they are called JST-XH connectors) be sufficient in a overhauled stampede? (Don't worry, I've rewired my stampede with 16AWG silcon wire, so no problems there)
