yeah ha ha.there is now going to be a big screen to watch movies on instead of a live band as it couldnt be organised

Probably better for me because the band would almost certainly not have been to my taste. I mean I'm generally so sick to the back teeth of pretty much anything with electric guitars, but most especially the classic format 4-5 piece band, that I really can't listen to anything but the foremost practitioners of the art, usually those responsible for creating a style or whole genre actually, or if not, giants within the pantheon of musos' gods anyway... I realise that sounds snobby, but I'm a sound engineer - it's just been done to bleedin' death!

I am extremely interested in going along to this, just had my summer leave confirmed and I'll definitely be off that weekend. Anyone have any objections to taking a (relative) newbie along? Also, what to do about battery charging, other than just bringing along a couple of fully charged ones?

I don't mind n00bs, I'm not that long from being one myself, and compared to some I still am...

I dunno if there'll be any battery charging opportunities. I mean I expect some people will bring generators and maybe the GZ people will provide some power, maybe not, but if there are 1600+ people there the chances of getting to use any of those options is pretty slim, eh?

I'm going with stocking up on batteries in the coming weeks and taking them all fully charged.

What batteries have you got and for what gun/s?

Gun is a TM M4A1 with a few mods and a TM 5-7 GBB, takes a mini type battery in the foregrip, I have 3 batteries available, 2x 1600mah ones and a 600mah emergency one. Will that be enough providing they're fully charged?

Fair point about the 1600 people and charging ability... Anything available to all would end up being swamped anyway.

Regarding being quick, I've got more than a week yet, that's ages!

I think I'll just get another 1600mah battery and hope for the best, it's only 2 days skirmishing really. Have permission from the boss (mrs jcheeseright) so I'll book up this weekend. Where do I get an AF-UK patch from?

I use a 1600mAh mini stick type NiMh in my AK - it lasts me until early afternoon on a day skirmishing from about 09:50. I've got a 1500 that sees me to the end of the day, 16:00-ish. I'm planning on getting another 1600 and I've got the 1100 that came with the gun for emergencies (it doesn't perform as well as it should - I can literally run it down in 45mins of intense skirmish). I expect that 3 1600s should do you.

If you see a post by Devastator, there's a link in his siggy to buy a patch, otherwise there's a pinned thread.

If that's an open offer to the AF-UK team, Josh, thanks! I might need a squirt of juice for my L1A1 - assuming somebody is coming in a car of course, because I haven't got one!

I've never flattened a battery at a skirmish, and I used to use an 8.4V 1100mAh in my M4. Now use an 8.4V 3700mAh in my M16, so there's pretty much no chance of me flattening it. Used it 3 skirmishes in a row without charging before.

As we're on the topic of batteries, would a 7.4V 1600mAh Li-Po last the same length of time as a 9.6V 1600mAh Ni-MH?
Also, with Li-Pos, what's the C rating mean?


Gonna need to use a Li-Po in my new M4 when I get it, and what'll fit is a 7.4V 1450mAh 20C+ continuous discharge one, how will that last in comparison to a standard 9.6V 1600mAh?

How many BBs do you get through on average, in a day's skirmishing, Liam?

I take a couple of shots, if they miss then I tend to stop firing and get closer. Work on the logic of 'if I can't hit them, they can't hit me', which most of the time with my M16 is true :P

I'm old, knackered and a bit infirm (I have to cane my pain meds to skirmish at all), so running is not something I can do much of, so I often support the team by firing at the enemies' cover to make them keep their head down while my more active team mates move up, by the sounds of it, like you.

If I feel lazy, or stayed up all night the night before, then I snipe all day instead. Much less work, find a nice bush and lay there most of the day :P. In the afternoon game, I usually stay in literally one place with my sniper and a few mates (another sniper and 2 AEGs), the four of us can hold the position all afternoon :P

Yeah, that sounds like a plan! I'm only just starting to get to grips with how to go about skirmishing with my DWR, but maybe I can take some pointers from you @NAE12.

So Josh, are the regens really far away from where the action congregates? & how long do the skirmishes last for?
