i have an 07 etek ego, currently the most recent post in ego picture thread, and it has a star frame with the maniac board. i am buying a pulsed halo and hooking up the RF Harness and Chip to communicate with the board when i get it mid-next week. so anyways i was bored and decided to look at the reviews of the maniac board. here i read that someone with the maniac board hooked up the rf harness and chip inside their ego, not etek. anyways they said the board wasn't good with it and it shot slow and the solenoid soon burned out because of the rf setup. so i called PE today to ask them how likely this was and the tech asked me to say my setup. i told him it was an 07 etek with 06 star frame and maniac board. after i said this he told me that was impossible and we talked for a few minutes with me saying the gun has worked great for me and him saying it was guaranteed to break.

? 1. so anyways i bought the gun from pbnation a week ago and it works great, but how is it hooked up then because the PE guy is positive this would not work

? 2. will the solenoid burn out with rf chip hooked up?

You may have better luck asking this on PBN or TechPB, a lot of people on those two forums have a lot of experience with PE markers. If it's working for you, I don't see a problem. I can't see you outshooting a Halo unless your on uncapped ramp, so maybe you should just play it safe and not hook up the RF.

I dont see why it would burn the noid. I run a Karni with Rf and the RF is set-up before the noid and if anything draws power from it, i dont see a reason why it would burn it.

An RF chip won't burn out your noid. I don't see why anyone would even think that.

Call The RI Eclipse office and talk to Gerry or Bill. Tell them what you have and whatever they tell you IS fact. They are hands down the best gun techs I have EVER came in contact with and I have delt with most all manufacturers. Dont be afraid to ask questions and keep them on the phone. They are both very helpful. There may be an issue with the ROF from the Maniac board and the particular noid for the 07 etEK.

You can also go here to post your question but you will get a LOT of wrong information from other posters so ONLY listen to the guys from Eclipse. They all post on there often and are very helpful.
