I am selling my gun and high torque motor seperately, but I heard that if you put the wires on wrong it will fry your gun. I can not figure out which wire goes on which side of the motor, there is a little plus sign looking thing next to one, which leads me to believe that that means postive. I want to be sure though as I do not want to fry my gun. If you know, please help me! Thanks!
Hook up the wires while it's not in the gun, see which way it spins, then find out which way your gearbox won't spin. You may be able to do that without opening your gearbox. You can try looking into the hole the motor goes and see how the anti reversal catch engages.
Thank you guys for your help! I think I will take out my current motor and see which way it spins, then hook up the stock motor and see which way it spins, and if it spins the right way I will out it in. Thanks!
For a very short test it should be OK. I've run my guns without fuses since my first AEG, like 10 years ago. Never would a fuse have helped me. I've only had one electrical problem and it was a short right at the battery.
Shameless plug for my airsoft chrono calculator, useful for converting Joules to FPS/MPS and determining what FPS difference there would be assuming no loss or gain to Joule creep.
No it's not. As X explained, a fuse is not necessary. It's basically a safety feature which limits performance. If you know a decent amount about AEGs, not using a fuse is perfectly fine. It only comes into play involving short circuits and misuse (such as attempting to fire the gun while it's locked up).
