In Topic: What is the max voltage on the Elite Rayven?

05 April 2013 - 12:55 PM

I would not try running it on 4 trust fires. I mean, you would be able to get some use out of the blaster running at such a high voltage because of the burst-firing characteristic. However, in my experience, that voltage yields an awful smell, an uncomfortable rattling, a loud noise, and pretty bad fishtailing with stock elites. Any potential range increase is completely negated. Use 3 trust fires, if that.

Also, your name is fucking fucked up. If it's named after what I think it is.

1) It's a non-NIC group, I.E. little hardcore modding, stock darts, mostly casual players.
2) You can use homemades and/or modded blasters if they're proven to be safe by the war host. I don't know what his standards are though, so I'd bring aback-up.

Alright sounds good. I am just going to bring my modded flywheel blasters and hope they are deemed safe. I doubt anyone will have a problem. Thanks

If I was you I'd just join the group.

Yea, I requested access.

I am not a member of the page yet so I can't post there directly. Few questions:

Is this a Nerfhaven group? Like, are these guys modders and part of the forums? It doesn't matter to me either way. I am just wondering what to expect in terms of blasters, modded vs. stock.

I saw on their checklist that only stock darts are allowed. Does this mean only stock blasters can fire them? I am not planning on bringing anything over the top. Only a few modded flywheel blasters and probably a crossbow.

If this is a modded war and people are using modded blasters, I will definitely be there this Sunday for the next event. If not, I probably won't make the drive just for a stock war.

Also, how many people usually make it to these events? Like 8ish?

Your wording of "Taylor series" threw me off. It isn't a Taylor series — just a regular series with trig functions in it. However I thought maybe the solution when I glanced at it last night would be to Taylor expand each trig function. Its immediately obvious that this isn't how it works though because the coefficients of the series are powers of (1/2) whereas a Taylor expansion that has elegant simplification would use powers of (1/n)

Yea, I originally tried to Taylor expand it, but stopped short when I realized that definitely was not plausible. Not sure why I worded it like that.

However, you should notice that since the coefficients are (1/2)^n and the trig functions are sin(nx) and cos(nx), there is a very obvious simplification of both series to a single series over the complex numbers.

Hint: e^(ln(1/2)+ix)^n = e^(n*ln(1/2)+n*ix)

Looking back on my notebook/worksheet from the test, I do actually have that jotted down. I;m happy you/your student got to that step as well. Hopefully I got this one.

Great descriptions, but for me at least no pictures are showing up in the actual write-up.

Easy to follow nonetheless, which is commendable.
