  1. To follow up my project of converting HPA into an ARES G36, To answer my own question, yes it is possible although it's difficult to find Polarstar parts world wide, and long shipping times. I found the F2 engine on powair6.com and the nozzle (had to purchase nozzle and engine separately),the switchboard and reinforced hose from Amped airsoft, the FCU from Easy Airsoft. It required a few modifications, I needed to file a tiny bit (I reckon 0.1mm) of the F2 because it was blocking the trigger mechanism, also there's a cable that has to be soldered into the switch. To plug the FCU I required to put a mini-tamiya plug for the LiPo battery. So far looks good, I also upgraded the inner barrel from a 285mm into a 455mm 6.01mm madbull, with a madbull shark hop up rubber. The inner barrel is longer than the outer barrel so I included a silencer to cover the inner.
  2. Yes you can have two guns with one regulator : Speed Airsoft HPA Pro Air Regulator I have this one and works great you can a have pistol and a rifle attacked at the same time. I bought mine from Evike, just check that is the pro version because they manufacture other ones that have only one line fitting. https://www.evike.com/products/12098/
  3. Hi, Thanks for your detailed question What I'm trying to figure it out is which gearbox do I have, I'm not 100% sure if it's a V3. Someone told me it will fit an F2 V3/AK but same, not sure about this. Usually the options are not very clear like on that Evike screenshot.
  4. Hi everybody thanks for reading my post. I would like to fit an HPA engine into my UMAREX G36K, I think is built by ARES . I can't figure it out which gearbox it has, I've search on the Polastar and other manufacturer sites, also EVIKE or other vendors but it's not so clear to me as they don't mention specifically this rifle. How can find which one is the best fit? Any suggestions for a really good engine? I've been reading some posts and some people had to adapt the kit into the gearbox.
  5. Hi ,I saw your advert Which Maple unit you fitted on your 19x ? I'm trying to fit one into mine but is not compatible it's only for gen4, is there one for gen5 ? Cheers

  7. Thanks, yes epoxy putty and making sure the tube doesn´t touch the blades I made a cut of the tube on a C shape sort of saying to cover more volume inside the fan, also I got a tube to match with the internal diameter of the fan, I checked this previously on the specifitications so it won´t be lose. I tested using teflon tape, or other types of tape (as used for cyclone mike fan) but this seemed the best option. I attach a picture of a newer version I´m working on, this one will be lighter and fit´s any cap, plus I think I can make it more air efficient.
  8. If you have a helmet or anything similar and goggles it´s super cheap, I would say less than £60 and you´ll end up with a very reliable fan, reliable battery, nothing will brake dow in a few days besides everything can be easily replaced. I was tempted to buy the £25 fan goggles on Amazon, but the costumer´s feedback is quite bad, I would say they are disposable.
  9. I sweat a lot too, and I fogged everything I´ve use even with antifog products, ventilated goggles and all the times I accumulate a lot of water on them. When I turned on the fan right from the beggining it blows away all the sweat, and scapes through the small gaps of the goggles so I think it wouldn´t work with completely sealed goggles. It is the first time I can be on a skirmish full time and not having to clean the goggles all the time. Also to prevent my eyes to be dry from the airflow I deflected the tubes to blow directly into the screen, I attach a picture from inside the goggles.
  10. Yes you could say that, before making this helmet I checked online and there´s plenty of products from cheap goggles on Amazon, which I wouldn´t trust to work, it comes with a tiny fan powered by AAA batteries, there´s also cyclone mike , Exfog and also the £280 version of the goggles but all powered by AAA batteries. The fan I used is the same used for cyclone mike but cost me way less and I didn´t wanted to rely on AAA batteries, for me LiPo was a must for several hours of use. Another thing this products don´t have is the speed control. In overall it cost me a third of an Exfog and has the features I look for.
  11. I was tired of dealing with fog all the time, tried different goggles, anti-fog additives and so on, and I wouldn´t ever try mesh goggles so I decided to make my own gear which in principle is an air blowing system that continuously removes the steam produced inside the goggles. I´ve tried it already twice at skirmishes on very hot days and worked perfectly, so good bye fog for me. For this project I took as a support base a tactical helmet and I used a very quiet electrical 5V fan blower, powered by LiPo batteries 7.4 V, 1200 mAh. The fan is connected to an flexible silicone tube followed by a Y connector in which I attached a smaller ID flexible tubes, those are connected directly into the goggles. The fan is powered by the battery but it´s controlled by a power module and a variable resistor to select different fan speeds. The system works quite well even at the lowest speed and the battery lasts between 5 or 6 hours at full speed. I built a box with 0.8 mm aluminium sheets for the battery in case it receives shots and it´s placed it outside the helmet , to protect the fan I hardened the structure with expoxy putty so I´m pretty sure it can withstand shots. The goggles are directly attached to the helmet so it´s easy to put everything on, and allowed me to wear face protection too. So on my tests, the fan is super quiet and zero vibrations I barely notice when is on, there´s a lot of place for improvements but this was the first prototype, I´m currently working on a compact version to be used with caps and smaller goggles.
  12. Wow thanks everybody for the replies, I´ll check for your suggestions and build a project there, I want to find something that has easy to find parts and upgrades.
  13. Hello everyone I am new in this sport so I am looking to purchase my first gun, I've been doing my research on brands, models, upgrades and so on. So basically I have this clear idea on my head to get an assault rifle first. Personally I like the H&K G36K but when it comes to airsoft it could be a complete different story I don't want to purchase a "good looking" gun but functionally weak or unreliable, so Tokyo Marui manufactures the G36K and found that fires relatively same FPS everytime. But what other aspects should I look for in a gun? For the experts what guns (models and brands) would you recommend me for being reliable and also versatile to be mechanically upgraded? on the range of £300-500. Because besides practising this sport I found interesting as a hobby to have a gun I can customise and upgrade. If the G36K is not versatile in terms of upgrading gears, motors, and so on I would look for an M4-Ar15 model or similar.
  14. That's great , thank you guys. Glad to be welcomed, I tried paintball before, but long time ago, airsoft seems more fun to me, hopefully I can experiences to share in the forum soon. Cheers.
  15. Hi everybody. I've been interested in airsoft for a while, but I don't know anyone interested to join me for an event. Hence I would like to join a club in the London area, does anyone knows an airsoft club in the area ? I've been checking skirmish maps but links are broken (any site where I can locate places?), not much info about this on social media or elsewhere (maybe I still don't understand the terminology to find one). Anyone interested to join me please contact me, I have weekends availability .
