So I've placed a tiny screw between that rod and the motor housing.. it works for now.
Its frustrating when your first AEG is defective after 500 rounds... already spent so much money and will have to get replacement parts.... *sigh*
the other issue is the charger; I plug my battery in, after about 45 minutes the green light goes on. so I unplug it and replug it, another 40-45 minutes goes by, the light becomes green again (green means its done charging).. I unplug and replug.. same thing.. I've been doing that for about 5-7 times with the same battery... will it EVER be completely (relatively speaking) charged???
Ok. Just to repeat the responses guiding you to a super charger, I say the b6d ($85)from airsoftparts.ca as that is what I use but its up to you.
Now, is your weapon above 390 fps or do you know if it has a m120 spring in it? I've seen 8.4v pull them but not mini's, they may be able to but none of mine can. That woul;d explain a fast discharge. And the motor should be much simpler than that to fix. Unscrew the two screws on the bottom of the handle (don't touch the middle screw) and remove the wires from the motor. Now inspect the wire connector that is problomatic, ensure that the connector is tight enough. I suspect this to be the problem and it is easy to fix
to be clear, the connector should pair nice and snug with the male tab on the motor. If it does not simple pinch it with plyers, not to much then test it. Once the fitment is 'nice and snug' it should be fine.
Don't forget to keep the butt plate and be sure to assemble the hanble with it in its proper place.
