I was just wondering if is it hard to install the virtue board into a vs2? Like what skills do I need? I'm new to paintball if you couldn't tell and i'm also new to the forums :D. I seen pictures of the virtue board and I only see one button so does that mean one of my buttons will no longer work? I read this review on the forums but I can't find it anymore but the guy who reviewed it said something about the charging port not lining up...I have a rechargeable battery so that would be bad news for me..should I just get a t-board or tadao board instead?

Its pretty easy. On the VS2 its just drop in. All you really need to know is how to take your frame off of your body to change out the eyes. The virtue board comes with its own set of laser eyes.

Charging port on mine was off. I just used my stock board to charge my battery. The button (Virtue only uses 1) will be ok.

err..the charging port being off was my greatest concern about this board...I don't know how I feel about removing the battery and using the old board to charge it every time.

The Tadao/ Spyder board would be your best bet especially with the new chip it can't be beat when it comes to modes, eye logic and direct drop in with no modification. The board does have an LED that you use for status and programming - http://www.sundragonpps.com/catalog/item/4688306/4734504.htm#image_1\

I highly suggest going through Sundragon - http://www.sundragonpps.com/catalog/item/4688306/4734504.htm
They are a great company.

I'm surprised no one is recommending the T-board...
Isn't it cheaper than both? Atleast the charging port lines up.

The t-board requires you install a membrane switch(which is kinda funky to do) and add new eyes. Tadao you just have to open the grip, remove the original board and install the new. The function buttons are aligned with the existing holes as well -

I don't think the t-board programing is as advanced as the Tadao programing. I have never once heard of any complaints of a Tadao board going down. Au contrare for the t-board -

Virtue charging port was a lil off on mine but not off enough to where I can't charge it through the existing hole -

Well, I haven't had any problems yet.

I agree, the installation wasn't very user-friendly, but my other hobby is computers so not a very big challenge for me.
In fact, I made a small installation guide (http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=11856) for someone else who was having problems.

I'd personally get the Tboard, the customer service is the best I've ever had. The charge port is a little off on the tboard but it's nothing to fret over.
