Hyperfire electrical wiring failure! Need help

After spending too much time trying to finally wire up my hyperfire, I've decided to come here once again, and try to find an answer for my problems. I followed Make test battles video guide for wiring up a rapidstrike for this, and with a little guesstimation I've gotten this far. Right now when the flywheels are revved they are spinning in the right direction, and when the conveyor is working it's feeding in the right direction, wired as it is, the conveyor won't work unless the flywheels are revved. Thats how it's supposed to be, but when i pull the tigger for the conveyor, it shuts off the flywheel motors. Following MTB's video exactly made it so that the motors were spinning backwards, and the conveyor was going backwards.
These are the wiring steps i used to get this far.
1. Positive from the battery to the NO on the rev trigger
2. com on rev trigger to back flywheels
3. com on rev trigger to NO on conveyor trigger
4. com on conveyor trigger to top conveyor motor tab
5. Top conveyor motor tab to top row on flywheels
6. Bottom conveyor motor tab to NC on conveyor trigger
7. NC on conveyor trigger to negative on battery.
I'm still really new with modding, and this is the first electrical project that isn't a stryfe. I really appreciate all the help I've gotten here so far, and I can't wait to be able to show everyone everything that I've accomplished.

Will 10amp micro switches work in a Meishel 2.0 Hyperfire Build?

06 January 2018 - 04:17 PM

I've finally got around to building my Hyperfire, and I'm having trouble fitting in two 16 amp switches, so I'm considering just using two of my old 10 amp switches. Will this work, or should I be safe, and try to fit the 16 amp switches in.


I'm using two Meishel 2.0 motors, and the stock pusher motor with an OFP cage, and probably this Lipo. https://www.etsy.com...p_home_active_8


While I'm asking for advice should I hunt around for a battery with a higher C?


If anyone has any suggestions, or advice It will be appreciated, Thanks!

Can anyone recommend a good glow in the dark base coat for hydro dippi

01 November 2017 - 05:07 AM

I've done some hydro dipping already, (pictures coming soon) and for one of my next projects I'd like to have a glow in the dark base coat under my pattern. I've seen a few different paints, read a few reviews, and seen some powders that you mix with an acrylic paint to get the glow effect, but I'd rather ask the community, and see if anyone has had success with anything similar in the past. Any help would be appreciated!

Nerf stryfe extended battery door recommendation

23 August 2017 - 06:27 PM

Can someone personally recommend an extended battery door, with a good amount of extra room for a 3s, that'll take a thumb screw? The one I bought had enough room, and I loved the look of it, but it would not take a thumb screw. Link below to the one I bought.


Questions, and feedback for the Nerf split strike.

22 July 2017 - 05:07 AM

A while back walcoms7 made a video about the potential of the Nerf split strike, making the point that it could possibly be made into a shotgun pistol shooting 4 darts at once. I fell in love with this idea. However, no one as far as I've seen has done a write up on how to do something like that. Opening it up it looks like it'll take a [k26] easily, unless the catch spring doesn't want to hold. However that'll just push the 2nd dart out about 10 feet at best if that's all I do. Does anyone more experienced have any advice, or ideas before I jump head first into new ground?
