I'm no HPA guy, so school me. Don't they feature a gearbox-shaped control box in the same place as an AEG gearbox and use AEG parts?

No.

 

Tippman is close to a GBBR M4, but Daytona Gun is very different; there are no similar products to DG apart from Escort (which are basically old DG designs).

Well there's certainly no need for that. The issue is there's a lot of cross-over between HPA and GBBRs right now as tapping GBBR magazines is becoming incredibly popular in the UK and the rest of Europe. GBBRs are getting refined even more, and the Tippmann is a good example of a retailer directly approaching the issue of recoil in HPA whilst still keeping an eye on the price. I dare say HPA is going to become nothing but more popular amongst players as rigs become even more affordable and buying an HPA-ready gun is made more easy and cheaper.

 

That's why I think an HPA section is a good idea. Sure, we'll end up with people going 'but where does my blow-back CO2 pistol go?', though ultimately there's no way around that. Your point is just as valid as anyone else's, but 'solenoid' HPA engines like Polarstar, SMP and the like are incredibly popular these days. I mean the PDiKs is a good example of a conventional, non-blowback drop-in that doesn't use an FCU at all and is entirely pneumatic.

 

I'm not entirely sure why this hasn't just been done yet.

Only one person has the authority, and they have not logged in for 45 days.

 

EDIT:

 

And yesterday.

Well, Devastator has been online three times in the last week afaik, and has not read any of my three (identical) PMs. I'd say if we want this - and a clean up of the board, we'll have to make some noise.

First question, to the mods, who runs the social media accounts? Does any of the moderation team have an email for Devastator, to get him to read his PMs?

Incidentally there were 25-30 HPA threads (including derails, but not list below, with 75% of posts on the subject) (found through searching the different manufacturer brands) when I posted this, there are now at least 30.

Any movement on getting the HPA sub forum yet?

Ah yes, by Christmas... just no idea which one.

Yes, it has only 25 votes in favour, although none against the idea, so maybe the admin does not think is worth it (like the proposal for a forum restructure).

So what chance of getting a seperate HPA sub-forum by Summer?

About the same chances as Devastator checking the numerous emails, PMs, Facebook message requests or even logging in before the summer; I'm considering just printing them off and posting them to him. Inactive admin teams is how good forums tend to degrade over time and whilst the moderator team is good, they just don't have the tools to do everything.

Will be here by the end of the week coming i'm sure.

 

 

Dang, I was out by four days. Pretty good though! :ph34r:

 

No one is more locally/vocally qualified than you Proffrink for writing us a starting HPA FAQ.

 

<List>

So, these threads worthy? Part of me wants to leave it clear and see what happens.

Just seen the new sub-section :D, now all those 'softers blowing air can have their own little niche and leave the gas pumpers alone :P

 

And it only took 26 Yes votes. Now we just need to get the search function reduced to 3 characters, so we can find HPA ;)

I guess we missed the window for non social media based HPA discussion, so much <little gems> of great info shared there and lost forever after only a few days.

Honestly some of the HPA info on Facebook is pretty terrible.

 

Doing some more on the FAQ tonight. Just not had time recently but will commit to an hour a week from here on in.
