Yeah - don't get an 11.1v Lipo.

 

Or at least not without fitting a mosfet first.

A 7.4V LiPo is definitely your best bet. You don't want to fry your first gun's trigger contacts with an 11.1.

This should fit.

modern APS guns are fitted with a mosfet, but they have very loose tolerances to their gearboxes, if you shim it don't shim it tight!

Thanks that saves me striping it down . It is the new gearbox . Its a APS UAR AU.

Chap who went to my local site stripped his piston in less then two days of use running an 11.1v in a UAR, might have been other damage as well.

You need more then a mosfet to make an AEG long term reliable running a higher voltage lipo.

 

 

Always thought 11.1v is a bit excessive anyway, 7.4v is perfectly fine. Check out componentshop for a good selection of batteries.
