Good evening. After much self deliberation I decided to rewire my AEGs to Deans and install PTC fuses for convenience over traditional glass fuses as well as cost effectiveness over MOSFETS. I've been using 25A fuses and none have tripped for months now over a 9.6v NIMH with Tamiya connectors and I would like to bring the best out of my AEGs electronic components as well as adopting a 7.4v Lipo. So I would like a second opinion over this PTC fuse. (http://www.mouser.com/Search/m_ProductDetail.aspx?R=AGRF1400virtualkey65000000virtualkey650-AGRF1400) Please whoever is experienced take a look and let me know if this fuse is OK to use in an upgraded AEG (neo magnet motor, M120 spring, 9.6v NIMH) and if not what you would recommend. Thank you
hi, I recently built a airsoft gun that has a 12:1 gear ratio, a lonex a-2 high torque motor and a upgraded gearbox. My gun requires A LOT of power. For example, the gearbox will not cycle unless I have a 11.1v lipo or greater hooked up. Recently my fuse blew out (going too hard on full auto) I had a 15A fuse and now I need to buy a new one. Since my gun has so much current running through it do you think I should buy a big fuse such as a 35A or 30A? Thanks, Chris
Hey! I just bought a G&G cm16 predator with mosfet. I was using it for a while and then it sounded like it got stuck in the gearbox. Clicking sounds were being emitted from my gearbox as I pull the trigger. Later on, my gun just stopped working entirely. I brought my gun to my local shop and concluded that my 25 amp blade type fuse was blown. I go to a auto store and get new fuses. When I come home, I put another 25 amp fuse into my gun. I plug in my 11.1 lipo and boom, the fuse was blown immediately. I don't know what's going on. Today I went back to the store and of course, they had to be closed because of an event. I am afraid to do anything else to my gun without screwing up completely until I get answers. Should I try higher fuse ampage? Is there something wrong with my wiring? Gearbox, motor? I have no clue. And my gun has been broken for about a month now.
I have recently rennovated a JG M4A1 I bought used off a friend. I now believe I am experiencing some sort of electrical issue. When he sold it to me it fired very slowly (rof wise) and it seemed as though the motor was struggling to turn over the gearbox. I replaced the fuse with a fresh one although I don't think it needed it, and I also backed off the set screw on the bottom of the hand grip to loosen the motor mesh (thinking it was too tight, causing the motor to work much harder to turn the gearbox.) Those two procedures didnt do anyhting though. After those two failed to increase ROF, I decided it must be the motor itself. So I went on ebay and bought a cheap motor just to see if it was the problem. The motor arrived and I installed it, only to end up with the same result, slow ROF and what sounds like a struggling motor. I tried my buddies 9.6v battery instead of the 8.4 I normally use, and that increased the ROF to an acceptable level, but caused the motor to heat up quickly, and I would not want to use it for more than a couple minutes. So basically it seems like my motor is struggling to move the gearbox, and, in turn, I am getting sub par preformance. I know the gun has not been modified internally, so its all stock gearbox and spring wise. I loosened the motor set screw at the bottom of the handguard, but it didnt seem to do anything, should I try to tighten it instead? Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.
