Hi,

Not sure if this is the right place for this.

 

Looking for advice on what Lipo battery should I use on a G&G GR14. 

 

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Does it have a mosfet and ETU 

 

It's an old design and not an M4 so no, they don't (praise the Lord!!!)

Any 7.4v lipo that will fit should be safe. 

Since it's a standard stock on the GR14 a decent sized block lipo with a high C rating and high mAh rating would be the best overall choice.

Measure the opening at the door and use those measurements as a guide. Then have a look on component shop as they have all the dimensions in the descriptions.

What you want is 30c/60c at about 2000mAh if you can find one that fits.

I'm very fond of these ones.

They have enough capacity to last all day if your not spamming full auto, And will chuck out more than enough amps to make the gun feel snappy.

103.6 x 34 x 15.5mm  VP

101.1 x 35.5 x 16.1mm Giant power. The extra size is due to some hard protection on these batteries under the shrink wrap.

If in doubt build a box up to imitate the size and see if you can get it in the hole without a problem.

Also If you have a high speed motor, 35K, 40K get the 30c/60c vapex ones as you might get double shots on semi with a fully charged battery.

no h8 m8!

 

I love me an M14 (I have the CYMA EBR Mod1) and I was originally looking at the G&G ones but cost and proprietary mags etc put me off.

Gotcha. I can't say I hate them as I've not used them myself but I have made the mistake of going by the sheer volume of folks that have reported issues (many of which I realise may have been down to their own fuckwittery). Either way, the G&G mosfet/etu is pretty much only on their more popular platforms and even then only on the more recent iterations of such, the GR14 et al isn't as popular a rifle so it doesn't get the development work. Shame because I'd love to see more than just M4s and AKs out on the field.

They don't put the ETU into the top end guns any more. The latest generation of top end models are all ETU free.

I don't agree with that, The Information that was sold with the ETU was all over the place. Sellers voiding warranty with 11.1v but the things only run on 11.1v, Then high C batteries blowing out the circuitry. It's a great idea and with some modification could be amazing, G&G just got it wrong. V2 seems to be better, there are fewer threads on those, But it's still far from perfect.


GR14 doesn't need much development, It's a good platform. A new style top cover in nicer plastic or an after market wood one would be nice. Other than that the gearbox is funky but works as does the rest of the gun. I'd happily add one to my collection.

Agreed. G&G dicked around with manuals and most retailers didn’t really have a clue. 

 

Ive put circa 10,000 BBs through mine on a 11.1 30/60c Lipo, not had a single problem thus far.

I'm liking the look of the G&G Predator it's within my price range but the bad talk of ECU's is putting me off abit. 

 

Is it worth it?

Yes. The majority of issues are due to people not using 11.1 lipos. Some earlier ETU did crap out but more recent guns seem to be fine.

Specna arms have 2 models that have a very similar look.

https://gunfire.pl/product-eng-1152211476-SA-V21-Assault-Rifle-Replica.html

At the price they sell for you should have spare funds for a fancy pistol grip clone, Magwell grip clone, and a mosfet.


Getting GFC to do the installation of the fet is actually pretty cheap.

https://gunfire.pl/product-eng-1152216014-XET304u-Mosfet.html

 

That works out to be an additional €28.

Get the free downgrade to 1.1 joules.

With the gun and fet it works out €50 cheaper than the G&G (shipping will be free via UPS if it's over €225).
