RIP Raja

Boff and Carrier Sharked RapidStrike Serial number 001, lovingly known as Raja, passed today. During an exhibition today to new friends it inexplicably ceased firing and proceeded to release a foul odour and smoke. It shall be sorely missed.

The same thing has happened to my last two Sharked RSs.

I fear that the Shark 40s tend to get a little warm inside the housing. I'm going for Blades in my next build.

Sad 002 Triakis is off to Boff for scaring LARPers and I believe suffered a similar fate in CarrierII's hands at GC1?

Edit: I realise the customer broke it! Sunday morning...
Send your RS corpse to me so it might live again...... Mwahaha
Sad to hear it smoked itself, but a good opportunity to gear up to 180's!
Boff

Huh. That's new. Usually when Sharks die they just stop working. There were a couple of pairs die on after trialling them with 4S LiPos but the users in question didn't report smoke. Weird.

MarcusH, yours was caused by a dodgy cable job on the pusher after being exposed to kicks and knocks of a whole weekend of hard combat. CarrierII fixed it up good and proper and we shouldn't have this problem again.

Of course, the wonderful thing about the RS is that with enough electrical knowledge and a 3D printer they're nigh-on un-killable! Very Happy

Not sure why it popped, it was a sad moment =( I am pretty much out of the hobby now though, it's dead for good...
OldNoob

Want to turn it into ? PM me if so.
CarrierII

Before that, is it more than one year old? If not, it's still covered by my warranty.

If you want it fixed (and it's still under my warranty), let me know.
OldNoob

I have plans for it now. All involve a re-build. I will send you the dead bits with my next order!
