although you will need new flywheels to effectively use "streamline" Elite/Koosh darts with it.


Is the gap between the stock flywheels in the barricade too wide for koosh/streamlines?

Happy to take this to it's own thread if needs be, apologies if I too am hijacking!

To make a Barricade shoot elites, simply put a set of stockade/stryfe/demolisher wheels on it. If you need those put a WTB ad up.

thank you ON. When the Barriccade arrives and I get some time, no doubt I will, along with some dummy AA cells from your good self Smile

PM me when you need that stuff. I would skip IMR in it personally, mine ran great on a little 2s lipo. It will take 3 IMR but you are over the stall limit for the tray springs and the motors are about 4-6A each stall, so on the top end of IMR power.

This is probably silly to suggest bearing in mind price, but Stryfe worker flywheels work well in my barricade.

I know that lipos are better, but  With rewire and 3IMRs mine does 100 fps and performs well at wars.

I'm lazy with taking care of LiPos, so just in case you can't put the time into looking after them and treating them right (like me!) it's an option, although ON is right about higher current etc ^_^
OldNoob

You are still putting 8A through tray springs designed for 5. I am lazy at looking after lipo, it's so easy it's hardly an effort.
Good point on the worker wheels. Did you have to trim the cage ramps more to get them in?
Justajolt

I did have to trim to physically get them in, although I don't know the name of the bit I trimmed.

That's an interesting thought. So would that mean getting springs and connectors made of a different metal? I can see how direct LiPo wiring would be easier than that.
OldNoob

You would have to make low resistance spring copper contacts for the tray. The 2s 2P stryfe someone did on here a few months back had those contacts made for the tray. I never bother as I have the packs and charger already!
