      My recent trip to Scotland to play airsoft has restarted my love for my Lil' Deagle.
       
      When I was up there the rest of my guns struggled while this bad boy kept flinging those BBs with range and accuracy.
      I thought with it being green gas and it being colder, it would have struggled but nah mate.
      I was clearing squads with it and looking badass while doing it.
       
      I have been looking at so many new guns to buy I had forgot to appreciate what I have.

    • Drink/food as it looks like a short break for lunch.   Good footwear, I would suggest with good ankle support, no branches, but BBs on the floor 😉   Not essential, but a tracer unit makes it more enjoyable.   Earplugs if you don't like heavy metal 😁.   Cheers   G
    • This: But with some modification due to the space constraints of the AUG platform.

      You can fit a basic mosfet without a problem behind the gearbox wall. The biggest I've been able to get to fit was a gate nanohard, but that took some serious messing about to get to fit well. You can't really put a fet on the battery side of the gearbox wall, because that eats directly into the space for the battery and there isn't a lot to begin with. The other disadvantage of using a programmable fet is you might not be able to see the LED's that tell you what you are adjusting when in program mode. Again with the nano hard I was able to make it so I can see the glow of this LED but it's a pain to adjust.

      A basic non programmable fet put in the correct spot will fit in the void at the back top edge of the motor.

      The advantage the aug has over a lot of platforms is you can add a mosfet without needing to open the gearbox. Provided you can solder everything you need to get to is exposed and easy to work on. Personally I solder my motors and use a deans connector to the mosfet, It saves a little space at the bottom of the case and stops the connectors/wires holding the gearbox up. I just use jumper style  (1mm) connectors for the trigger wires. You don't need to worry about adding a wire break between the fet and battery because the loom is so short and you can generally remove the full loom with the gearbox, but you will want the break to the motor and contacts, It helps a lot when you want to remove the motor and work on the gearbox without having wires and a motor getting in the way.

      Amp wise that battery should be decent enough 36amp continuous 72amp burst. More than enough for that gun. You could go with a slightly higher mAh rating there are plenty of 2200mAh batteries with 30/60 and 35/70 discharge ratings in the same form factor. It's not something I would worry about.
