Mod: MTB "Reapers" in an RS

MTB "Reapers" (name coined by Foam Data Services) are a prototype 2S 180 motor that hasn't (yet) been put into production. These samples were sent to Ryan of MTB along with samples for the MTB Hellcat, which should be arriving in the next few weeks. I acquired a pair of the Reapers, with the other pair being sent to FDS. I installed them in my 2S LiPo RS rifle.

MLF Game Report 15/5/16 - Low Player Count, Rapidstrike Testing

MLF event with less players than usual for the majority of the time, with several players joining in about an hour before the end of the rounds. Nevertheless the day had quite a few good rounds, and the play area was very nice. I chrony'd several blasters as we had a chrono on hand, which was very useful for me.

MHvZ Game Report 7/5/16 - Police Appearance, Virus Bunkers

MHvZ event with a surprise appearance by the police. I'll let the MTB video fill you in on more of the details and such. Basically someone in the park saw what they thought was a rifle of some kind, called the cops, and the cops responded appropriately. Thankfully noone was fined or anything, but obviously it's better if the cops don't need to come at all.

Review: Nerf Modulus Recon MkII

With the first Modulus blaster being a flywheeler, the next logical blaster to release is a Retaliator-based springer, being that the Retaliator platform has the most tacticool potential. Nerf did exactly that, releasing the Recon MkII. How does it compare to the still available Retaliator?
