Well I'm in the middle of building another AEG and waiting on the Real Sword AR-15s with great anticipation, so I guess that'll be a no. :P

As for your second question, yes it is. King Arms replica, which unfortunately they don't produce any more. It's rather chunky, heavy even without any of the bolt-on rails and ridiculously cold if you don't add a foregrip during the winter, but it did a good job of holding a NiMh back in the the bad old days. Number 3 has a nun-chuck LiPo inside the MRF rail, a bit tricky to setup at the start of your game day but very fun to shoot.

Nothing at all. There seems to be some myth around them that they'll fry your gun and set your house on fire if you look at them funny, but nothing could be further from the truth, I switched over about a year ago and it was the easiest thing in the world, wish I'd done it a lot sooner. Fact is, electricity is electricity, a 7.4v lipo (which is what I use) gives you a similar RoF to a 9.6v nimh, and any AEG can run a 9.6 more than comfortably, its barely noticeably faster than a bog standard 8.4 pack.

The amount if time I've spent looking at your WOC's :P

Cheers :)

Probably because someone might put in a massive lipo and fry the internals. 11.1v will give a huge ROF, a bit like running a 10.8v or even 12v MIMH so you do need some upgrades for that to work.

If you run 7.4v then no changes at all are necessary. I believe you run an ICS M4? Same here, I have a few and all run quite happily on 7.4v lipo with no issues whatsoever.

Yea mines ICS, so is it simply change the battery or is it more complex?

Component shop sell the batteries with mini tamiya connectors on, so no changes at all needed. Although I'd recommend Deans connectors as being a better option.

All you need is a decent lipo charger. If your current charger only does nimh then DO NOT use it for lipos, you need a charger designed for them. Imax B6, Turnigy Accucell get good reviews.

Holy **** CKinnerley.

In 6 years, i wanna collection like yours. How much do you think you've invested into Airsoft? As soon as i get my snakes sorted next year (250 hopefully). Then i'm going to concentrate on Airsoft. No real point as i can't get RIF til April 2013. -.-

Total investment since I started back in 05? Well, I did a very rough add up around a year ago on arnies when a thread popped up and I think it was about 12k back then, now... maybe 18k? That really is a totally ball park figure, it could be 13 it could be 20, it's nigh-on impossible to get an accurate amount. I only really started spending properly around the start of 2009, but it'd take literally hours to try and do a proper calculation, and there's no way I'd be able to factor in all the shipping and customs charges I've incurred over the years.
