This blaster was 6 weeks in the making. Two Rapidstrikes, a Centurion and a Raider donated parts to this project.
N-Strike badge is from a Barricade battery lid
Double deep trigger well
Centurion stock integration
A switch on either side lets you choose which RS you want to fire, left, right or both
when you pull the rev trigger, both sets of flywheels will activate, the toggles only switch off the pusher. This allows you to switch on the fly.
A fair bit of scratch building was required to cover the hole left by cutting out the handle
- two RSs with sides sanded flat for flush side-by-side fit
- rewired with 18 AWG wire and 16A micro switches all round
- EMF breaking using Make Test Battle's wiring guide
- two 30A toggle switches (one per RS)
- locks removed
- handle's shell inverted and attached to the inner RS halves
- integrated Centy stock
- Raider fore-grip
- 6 Falcon 130 motors, 4 flywheel, 2 pusher (no room for 180s on the left RS sadly and I wanted to keep performance even)
- Duplicolor matte dark grey base coat (2 coats)
- Duplicolor metallic cyan acrylic (2 coats)
- Tamiya florescent orange
- Duplicolor gloss acrylic clear coat (2 coats)
Battery = 3S LiPo
thats sweet. Can we see it firing?
Needs more cowbell.
I like everything about it except the exposed flywheels at the front. The stock and grip treatment is very clever indeed.
That is a thing of beauty. The blasters are integrated very well with little to indicate that they were actually separate blasters. I quite like the paint job as well.
I have to ask though, is there an unspoken rule that when multiple Rapidstrikes are integrated that it must be painted cyan?
