  1. Treat well Lipos are superior to NiMH and have a longer life span with more reliability. Don't go cheap on the charger if you can, I highly recommend chargers by Sky RC : https://www.modelsport.co.uk/skyrc-s60-ac-charger-60w-6a/rc-car-products/395139 I have one that has double charging so it can balance 2 Lipos at once - and it can also storage charge the batteries for long periods of down time. Honestly the simple plug in chargers with a red/green light on them will crap on your Lipos after a short time and aren't safe.
  2. Awesome mate I'll be camping in Wales that weekend but enjoy! The site is getting more players all the time and the guys are adding quite a bit to the layout. They're very open to suggestions too with it being a young site. No worries we're in proper airsoft season now so I'll try and remember to post on here when we're planning our next games
  3. Hi there! We've got a few players in the local area, @Markuz is one - we currently play at RIFT - The Village, SWAS RAF Wyton, and have plans to visit Team Green over at Tuddenham at some point too. I've got a few more sites on my list in the local area too so if you're ever heading to these let me know. I know a bunch of our team are heading to Wyton this Sunday if you're free - just shout "Howay" and one of them will respond 👍 Just realised I didn't quote OP see my post above mate!
  4. I shoot with a 24-105mm lens on a Canon 5D - does everything you need. Be careful of using a polarised filter, you will lose a couple of stops of exposure. I would more recommend a UV filter which is clear and still protects your lens to a degree (although it would shatter if a 0.4 hit it close range, at which point I would call it a day through sheer shock! ) Don't be afraid to get alongside shooters to catch them in profile and look to frame them in doorways Zoom in closer, use a wider aperture to get a greater depth of field, again gives more focus to the player Sometimes a different colour balance can be what a shot needs. Urban shots benefit from lower saturation to give a dirty/hard edged look - forest shots can be more colourful, think "Predator" - greens and warm Get down low, use foreground elements to give depth and drama to shots Don't be scared of using a hi ISO, you need a fast shutter speed as players will not stand still for long, and especially not in a firefight and if you're indoors. My lens also has stabilisation which is a godsend - lets you use a good couple of f-stops lower while maintaining a stable shot, great for indoors A load of my shots from Urban Assault a few months back : https://photos.app.goo.gl/8jTvLpsBGi7y8WbG8 Glad I got to the site before its done Hope that helps!
  5. I'm with you on encouraging people to give archery a go, it is incredibly satisfying when you get a great shot. I was unfortunately one of those shooting recurve, and while I didn't go down the route of the eye patches, I did have the stabilisers fitted. It takes a huge amount of skill to ensure your feet, shoulders, hands, head, chin, nose were all the same position as last time and you pulled back to the same millimetre point - some days it was fun, others it was frustrating and I did think about getting a longbow or flatbow for the more natural appeal. Attending a coaching course though and it improved my shooting no end, until I injured the shoulder of the arm that holds the bow and that was that!
  6. I'm having some work done on my garage roof, and the guy spots my practice archery target (full of holes) but mistakes it and asks "do you do Airsoft?" Turns out he used to partake but moved up to airgun target shooting and now clay/rifle shooting. One of the guys I parkrun with spots a photo of my gear on Facebook, he used to game several years ago and has a well used M4 gathering dust. Member of my local rc car racing club also used to game as well. Who has surprised you by being a current or past airsofter? (Is that a thing?) I guess I feel that because its 'omg guns are bad!' Then I don't tend to bring it up in conversation
  7. THIS ADVERT IS 'UNCOMPLETED' - THIS MEANS THE ADVERTISER HASN'T BUMPED THIS LISTING, BUT IT COULD STILL BE WORTH CONTACTING THEM.

    Pinned down by a sniper with a £900 Silverback? Surrounded by kids in hoodies, hip firing JG G36s? You need to break out, punch a hole, send em packing! Send in the armour! This is a genuine Tokyo Marui M1A2 Abrams RC tank with firing gun - capable of firing 0.12g BBs up to 25m in distance. It holds 40 BBs, so that's 40 kills soldier! The turret rotates through 320 degrees, and the barrel as a max elevation of 20 degrees - all controlled through the handset. With rubber tracks, and independent suspension, it can also climb inclines of 35 degrees and move over difficult terrain with relative ease. This is garden plinking on a whole different level. Rubble, soil, cats, it will climb over small obstacles quite well and the rubber tracks give decent grip. BBs are loaded through the hatch on top, which also houses a secondary power switch (safety) just for the main gun. The tank itself is powered by 8 AA batteries (although you could possibly switch this to a Lipo pack if you know your wiring) and the handset takes a single 9V battery. It's a little dusty from being on my display shelf, and is a little faded on the right hand side but otherwise is in full working order. I've owned it for at least 10 years and had many laughs stalking house mates at uni with it. Originally purchased from Model Zone, I don't have any of the packaging or instructions, but you may be able to find these online. Unfortunately it will only take 0.12g BBs, I've never tried 0.25 in it and wouldn't advise it. If you got a jam it could be quite difficult to free up. There's a further write up here. I can post, but can also arrange for collection in Cambs or Beds - postage would be via courier, and would probably be in the region of £10-15 as it's a bit heavy.

  8. What Facebook debacle? 😏 welcome anyway! Word to the wise, Airsofters are impatient buggers with shop orders (just check out the Places to Buy threads) so any updates to customers if their order is delayed, no matter how small an update, will carry you a long way!
  9. I have a TM PX4 and can highly recommend Swiss Arms Extreme Gas - link - it works very well in the RIF although does start to suffer in really low temperatures, as-in below 10 degrees. In the ranges of 10-15 it should work fine.
  10. No facts I'm afraid but you just have to look at the hoops Ukapu has jumped through with regards to legislation to get us where we are now. As others have said, all it takes is a Daily Mail headline - "KIDS AS YOUNG AS 6 WITH GUNS ON YOUR STREETS" and the government will lap it up as a Brexit distraction for a few days. It was a fool hardy decision by the site to allow this, and if they are indeed allowing kids as young as 6 to handle RIFs then I'm sorry, but that's frankly stupid.
  11. With others on this - Airsoft is legally on a knife edge and it's things like this that will make some hand-wringing-worrier lobby parliament and next thing you know we'll have permanently orange RIFs. Although the MPs assumption that kids as young as 6 will be taking part in Airsoft I think is a bit off, is there any site that allows that young?
  12. If it's been sat around, check the contacts on the trigger that they haven't oxidised. Otherwise if you haven't lost any of the tiny springs then you should be in good shape. My first gearbox split was a nightmare, could not get the reverse latch and trigger spring to stay put while trying to put the thing back together.
  13. I think the spring is a spare for the mag catch? Apparently they can fall out easily on some models when being dismantled.
  14. Bit late to the discussion on this one but I've got a TM PX4 with 4-mags and that served me well running for fun as a primary one day. I had a single pistol speed loader which could fill the 4 mags so had roughly 200ish rounds on me, the mags could do two full goes without being regassed. So yeah certainly possible, and good fun!
