Looking for a guide, or guidance toward rewiring electric gearboxes from digital to analog connections.

Hi there!

In possibly the most frustrating moment in my airsofting career, I had to drop out from Nightfall for the very first time, after finding out that my only working gun, an Ares G36C, would not fire at all. Not a single noise. I quickly determined that the electronics on the gearbox must have fried, because I realized that one of the batteries that was plugged into it, was not detecting a cell. Without sufficient time to combine my spare gun into one good working one, I had to withdrawal.

I refuse to deal with the same issue again, especially since I have a second gun with electronics that will not function, an Ares Amoeba AM-004. As a result, I wish to rewire every single digital gearbox I own, to analog, and stripping out the electronics completely. I have read that this is possible, but I don't know exactly how to do so. I am very capable of wiring and soldering, so it's just a matter of learning how to do it.

Before it is suggested, no, I refuse to replace it with another mosfet, because having a faulty lipo is all you need to blow up another one, and the only cure, a fuse, is often worse than the mosfet itself. If there is no way to rewire my gearbox, I will simply replace the entire gearbox completely with an analog model.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated. No rush, since I don't have any other games scheduled.

Considering the issues I'm having with leaking magazines, short of a Tippmann, I would rather take my chances with a traditional AWG.

Tippmanns are promising, but are very expensive.

If you're running 11.1 LiPos, you're going to run into failures on a mechanical trigger switch as well due to the arcing and burning.
If your problem was one of the LiPo's cells failing, then the issue wasn't the gun at all, it was a battery failure, and removing electronics won't solve that.
Fuses won't stop cells from failing, either.

Simple mosfet would be the best route if you want any decent amount of trigger response. It's an analog trigger switch, and there's not much that can fail on it.
If you want to put a mechanical trigger switch in it, use 7.4 LiPos and make your setup fairly low amperage.
The Ares EFCS mechbox will probably have to be swapped out to a regular V2 that can take a mechanical trigger. Mechbox swaps tend to come with their own issues.
