 you had chance to open up the gearbox? 

Open the gearbox ?.

Do that & you've just thrown away any warranty !.

If it runs straight & within site limits then I'd always leave it be until it actually needs looking at, ideally after 12 months, hopefully much much longer lol.

Warranty? Sending a cheapo gun back to Poland? Yeh, that's not happening for me - I can fix and tune most guns to a reasonable standard now so I'm happy to split open a gearbox. But I do understand where you are coming from. 

 

I just opened up my son's new/unskirmished Specna Edge - I'm glad I did as it was a complete sh**show on the inside. Now fixed and running nicely switching out a couple of parts and a bit of elbow grease (I won't bore you with the details) - I wouldn't of trusted the retailer to have properly 'fixed' it under warranty.

 

I think my concern about the DE M904G is not really the mechanics, because they are easily changed/sorted, but rather that Falcon fire control unit. I desperately want it to be good, because DE potentially has a game-changer on their hands with this gun. It's just that it's unproven and in the current lock-down climate it's reliability cannot be established.

 

But if that Falcon unit proves itself decently reliable - DE has just kicked the likes of G&G squarely in the teeth - I mean who would want an over-priced Combat Machine (up to £200 these days), when they could buy something like this?

 

I'm excited, but remain a bit skeptical.

Same.

I just hope it's not like the Ares EFCS (read proprietary piece of shit that can't be swapped with anything else without having to buy and dremel a whole new box shell).

I'm gutted, finally found a site I wanna stick with, but they've just announced they're no longer running games there, & me one game away from getting my ukara up & running again after about 6 years without it, time I get it sorted again no doubt the price will have soared lol. 

@mightyjebus, it's all your bloody fault 😜

Don't miss out mate, get a mate with a UKARA to accept delivery for you! 

 

Just make sure it's well hidden when transporting it outside the house.

Naughty! 😜

 

I'm going to hold-off on one of these until later in the year once people start playing with them and I can see some post-skirmish feedback. That, and I would prefer one in FDE rather than black.

 

Thanks @mightyjebus for the excellent first impressions review.

A very very nice man has already offered 😁, but as I'm waiting on two lots of surgery before I can play again, I'm holding off, plus at a rough guess I'm sitting on around 14 rifles & 6 pistols at the minute, so enough to keep me going (but it's on my shopping list along with an AA12, L1A1 & MK5 Sterling🤤)

Very good advice mate👍, thankfully after 20yrs of playing I have a plethora of gun bags & hard cases 😁

Haha sorry mate just assumed you may be quite new to it due to lack of UKARA

I should my mate this thread today, he's got a honey badger already but has got in his head he wants to play with two at once! He's tempted to get one of these instead and if he does I think I'll pick one up to!

 

Ye thanks @mightyjebus, great review!

good video and internals look good. This also saves me stripping mine until I break it :)

I S hopped my inner barrel and added a prometheus flat hop rubber (Blue) and a Prometheus hop tensioner (also blue) and I can now shift .36g with ease.

 

I've also uploaded the 3D battery extension for anyone who wants to print 1 off.

I've got a high speed motor in the post and I'll be interested in seeing what different it makes.

Pheas sends the link to the video of a disassembly. Support his channel :)

 

Gotta say - those internals look pretty damned good for a £104 quid gun.

Do you use it with 7.4v or 11.1v battery?

I'm going to try both. I think the biggest gain will be seen with a 7.4 using a high speed motor. Using a 11.1 might be too much.

Hello,

I bought the Honey Badger too and made an teardown after Delivery and Upgrade some parts.

 

I added an new shs lightweight Piston,

 (14teeth) shs pom Piston head and an shs High Torque Motor - new protech Grease For the Gears - Overall an decent gun - played it one day Long and Love it.

Im really impressed whats possible for this small Budget.

 

The Falcon system works Like the Gate Titan/Aster, Perun or the cheap etu from T238 with optical Sensors. And i works like a charme.

 

Thx For the battery Extension. 

 

Cheers!

PS: sry for my english, im not from the uk.

Why did you go for this one instead of the one made by POINT

no real reason as they will probably be very similar based on price.
