  3. So having recently purchased the gate aster and installed in in my krytac lmg I thought I would write a sort of review/summary of the performance and problems I have had and see if anyone else has had problems? So installation was relatively easy if you have some experience opening up gear boxes but onto the first problem, gate and all the sites selling the aster claim it is a drop in for krytacs with 'no dremmeling of the gearbox required, only the removal of the bolt lock' this is wrong, the aster instead of 2boards (1 sending the light signal and 1 receiving it like the titan) has a single trigger board and you place a reflective sticker on the other half of the gearbox, accept the spot you place this sticker has a reinforcement strip running through it that you have to dremmel away or the trigger sensor cannot read the sticker reflection as its not flat, hardly 'drop in' but no biggy. The bolt catch I can't comment on as the lmg does not use one. Once installed the gun fired intermittently, turns out this is a problem with light getting in where the trigger hole is in the receiver /gearbox and confusing the trigger sensor, a little black electrical tape over the hole solved that. Now once trigger/selector plate were calibrated everything worked as it should until I began to reduce the trigger travel on my maxx model adjustable trigger, I could not get into 'trigger programming mode' after some communication with gate and from what I understand the aster will only allow you to program it via the trigger if the tavel is set to 'full' if you adjust it via the trigger grub screw and in the gate GCU app to anything much less than full travel it won't let you 🤔🙄. Now when I have it set so I can trigger program if I switch fire modes the gun won't fire once I set it untill I unplug the battery and plug it back in, more worryingly when I did program it this way the gun would fire when I switched from safe to semi with out me touching the trigger! I contacted gate again and they said update to the latest firmware (which only came out the day before🤔) this seems to of solved the firing on its own problem but not the dead trigger after a fire selector change and I have still yet to hear from gate about it 😔 now all these problems were no major issue as I can program the gun from my phone/USB link but would just of been nice to be able to switch fire modes on the fly. Now it sounds like am slating the aster but am not, it has some glitches/teething problems but is great! My fire rate is up and adjustable, my trigger response on an 11.1v volt is amazing (40ms) and the adjustable features like active brake, fire rate, trigger sensitivity, fire mode option, statistics and diagnostics is great and I do recommend it to anyone even based on my slightly negative experience the pros out way the cons 👍 would also recommend a motor swap for UK krytacs if you are going to use an 11.1v and active brake as the 20k motor is not quite up to it (I used a classic army 25k, nice torque /speed balance) hope this info helps someone and my problems may just be limited to my unit /setup, every other gate product I have used was perfect so I will give them the benefit of the doubt 👍

  10. Today
  11. Remember not to skimp on the charger. It gets expensive and annoying when you have to replace batteries and can get super expensive and annoying if your house burns down...
  12. Another good reason to wear full face (but not one of the ones with a huge lease on it) protects your face’n’teeth AND cuts out the skin reflection ! 👍
  13. You are correct good sir , TM haven’t made a fixed upper for the M4 recoils but it is possible to do , there’s been a couple of documented builds on different forums over the yrs . I actually built one my self a good while ago , basically I cut away the lower side rail on the carrying handle , drilled and tapped a couple of holes in the base corresponding to ris rail gaps thread locked a couple of pieces of threaded rod in to the holes then epoxy putty in the rail gaps pushed the the rods in to the putty , filled all the side gaps in then sanded and painted then in a Blackhawk down themed camo and then age it a bit .👍
  14. Too right, thank god for this thread, if it stops just one person from getting ripped off then it's worthwhile. pisses me off that other forums dont allow similar threads, feckin snowflakes 😡
  15. I’m with you on the weight thing , not bothered at all humping a heavy gun around . if a gun is heavy in the real world then I want the ‘toy’ to have some heft to it as well , t’is the whole point of a RIF looking like a real gun after all , I’d be VERY disappointed if you pick up the Airsoft one and it ways rock all compared to the real one , for me any way it becomes a case of well what’s the point ?
  16. Don't I need a gun with a mosfet - otherwise i could drain it too much.... ??? Was looking at this : Classic Army M4 10″ ASR4 ETU £170... it comes with a mosfet as part of the trigger system... super snappy firing... what the reviews online... Thanks for the tip... I'll defo take a look at a Lipo... when it comes to batteries... etc... Cheers Frank
  17. Yes, but be aware that the stock bushings are terrible, you may want to replace them asap just in case.. Mine were completely gone in less than 5000 bbs fired.. By the way, I just picked up a barrel extension, a rmr riser, a couple of sling mounts and a sling plate. Next week it'll be time for a new outer barrel and a bit of a lathe work on a suppressor..
  18. @Tackle - Unfortunately there's no shortage of chancers and rip off merchants in airsoft, just like in many walks of life.
  19. Thanks for all the advice. I've watched a few vids on YouTube and one thing I've noticed is that you don't have to strip down the weapon and tape off lenses etc.
  20. Hi all, currently wanting to dmr my specna arms sa-e14. I was thinking an m120 spring as local sights limit is 420fps on .2. do you think the box is strong enough or will other upgrades be nessasary? Many thanks
  21. Yes, couldn't be happier
  22. Why buy obsolete technology? Especially from those shysters at Nuprol. 7.4V lipos from www.hobbyking.com and a SKYRC B6 charger all the way.
  23. see i can accept the cqb argument, although not sure i like sites limiting ammo weight arbitrarily, sure it carries energy at range but it'll never have more than when it started.
