Ok, then I don't want to pay more for a new board than I did for the gun.

I paid more for my Palmer and Rocket valve than I did for my Imagine and it was worth every penny. You sound a bit......tight -

Anyways, I wanted to add another observation to this: for some reason, the stock VS board continually sucked the life outta the battery. I would charge it, not even touch it for a few days and the battery would basically need another charge again. I had the same result from my MR2 board. After adding this board there is no such problem. I last charged it on Saturday for the test. I did the test and have tinkered with this every single day since and it finally needs another charge. If it was the stock board I would have needed a charge by Sunday lol -

06 Electra's had the same problem, wonder if there's a common component in the boards that causes the battery drain

Another addition....a tease per se: I've alleviated the bounce completely by modding the VS but can't say how lol. After doing this, the rof in semi was actually skipping shots. Didn't think why, till I remembered making the bounce settings so danged high. I took the bounce settings back to the norm and no skipped shots at all and no bounce at all. Imma geenyus I tells ya! -

The reason the ROF was so low when your finger was blocking the eyes the board can tell whether or not its firing paint or just being covered. So if you cover the eyes and shoot it thinks there is a eye malfunction and caps your BPS.

Hope it helps....

Viking - The board prices actually did go down, they were $160 and now are $135, also the Spyder board comes with the free Laser eyes.

actually a really common thing on boards now. Tom, I may be testing you here, but why should one of us buy virtue rather than tadao? Technical differences in programming or other aspects people tend to overlook may add cookie points.

Common sense says......the Tadao is not available yet is it? -

I really don't see how he could rationally answer that if it doesn't exist, do you? lol -

generally speaking tadao uses the same sets of code and the same hardware for each series, they adjust it for each gun, sure, but it's still m7 and "x" microprocessor. so i was just wondering in general, but while attempting to encompass the two spyder boards.
