101% agree if you are happy with setup/motor  -  solder is best but depends on ya gun/box

 

V3 - nice n easy to do/remove - did solder motor on AK12, can always remove frame/motor option to work on box

 

V2 - bit more of git to do - so soldered the connectors with extra solder on bends on recent DSG FH

(or would have to keep desolder/resolder motor to work on box)

Some guy did solder a v2 motor and had bananna type plug/socket in pistol grip

but space could get tight for motor in there plus it's another join

Hence did the connectors still - ensured tight fit on motor & extra solder on 90 degree bends - damn V2's

The way I would do it (if I was into M4's which I'm not :lol:) is to not bother curving the wire round in the same way it does when you have a spade connector on the end, but rather to cut the wire so it goes straight down to the motor terminals and solder them 'upside down' if you see what i mean.

They are a bit of a bollock ache v2's

 

There are a couple of ways to route the wires in box and in grip

most go for the standard wire each side in box but if using much thicker wire and 2 x fet wire's say on a rear wired box

it can get a bit cramped by motor, so options are widen box at rear and run both motor wires down back, only fet wires go across motor entry in box

 

G&G default is to run two seperate wires out of both sides of box, then run both at back of grip rather than either side of motor

 

The DSG I ran both at back of box, both at back of grip, one laid low on negative terminal of motor, then positive ran the long way round motor on top of negative

Reason being there is a blank or plate on bottom of grip motor plate preventing a shorter direct route - could cut a groove but routed it as was allowed....

It did actually lay quite well - was pleased coz thought it would never fit in on such thicker wire - but it did go in there quite easily in the end - well reasonably easy

 

Still a bollock ache all the same, luckily there are a few options but yes you can solder on a v2 but is regarded as more of pain to remove & service box

where as v3's remove frame/motor cage, and you got access to box - even solder/desolder the switch wires without needing to open box

fitting a fet on a v3 & upgrade wire can all be done without opening the box - though as we know it don't hurt to crack it open and aoe,seals,grease to ensure she is fet & juice ready......

 

Yes only worked on a few v3's but I do like them as being a bit more user friendly to work on especially electrical wise & test purposes with motor cage on and test away

deffo an improvement on the older v2's in my humble opinion.

 

But that don't mean I prefer AK's over the Fords of Airsoft - M4's

(I ain't joining the dark side just yet but admit they got a better build/layout)

I want one that says "East Mids Death Squad" but so far I haven't been able to find anyone to design the logo - a hooded skeletal Death drawing the string of a longbow, but facing forwards so the arrow head is massive in forced perspective, not sideways like archers are almost always portrayed, but also not looking like a Scooby Doo villain...

Yeah it was a tough choice but it was narrowed down by the fact I already have a HK416 and a load of PMAGs. I was leaning towards the SCAR but the Recce caught my eye, plan is to get an R Hop fitted plus a load of other internal work by Kingdom of Airsoft.

I love scar h and the 417 but the mags are huge on both which makes pouches a pain.

I like the HK417 but the long variant TM have chosen is not my cup of tea. I'd imagine it looks alright with something on the rails but it was off putting to me. I remember there being talk of TM releasing different variants but i'm too impulsive to hang around for that lol.

It's only a week or so till their next product announcement, they're getting quicker at releasing stuff with every release so could be closer than you think ;)
