Make sure to clear a nice large works space to get to work in, and stock it with the following:
- Stampede, obviously. Unmodified is not a necessity, but you'll have an easier time with one you already know is functional.
- Burst Wizard King Kong Super 2 or newer airsoft burst controller with Deans Ultra connectors. This writeup pertains only to this particular series of controllers, and we claim zero responsibility for failed installs of other controllers.
- Orange Mod Works catch spring, Stampede catch control spring, and either 4 or 6 kg Stampede spring
- #1 Phillips Screwdriver
- Dremel tool with full compliment of cutting and grinding bits.
- Hot glue gun and plenty of glue for it.
- Soldering Iron, Solder, and Shrink Wrap
- 18 gauge or better wire, I used 18 gauge speaker install wire from Radioshack
- (OPTIONAL)Castle Creations Castle Series Wire Harness, with Deans Ultra Connectors.
|Not enough workspace.|
Remove all wiring, switches and motor, preferably without cutting anything. Patience and forethought pays off here because we will be re-using a couple of switches, namely the trigger switch and safety switch. Make sure to leave the leads nice and long on your trigger and safety switches, you can always trim them later. I also retained the forward magazine safety switch, for later integration with the Burst Wizard 3 when I get around to grabbing one for testing.
Connect your 24gauge wire to one of the two trigger switch leads, either the Common or NO (that's the lower one). Trim wire lengths, solder, heatshrink and tack down to keep that line out of the way of the trigger mechanism. Solder the negative motor cable directly to the negative motor terminal, after appropriate routing and trimming. Next, solder BOTH the remaining trigger lead AND the positive motor wire to the positive motor terminal, after appropriate trim and routing of course. Check all your connections for shorts. If desired splice your safety switch into the 24 gauge trigger wire. Trace your leads from the BW to double check your work. You should now be able to hook up your power supply of choice and proceed to programming your BW according to the manual, using mode 11 to set a custom burst length. If using a Lithium based battery make sure to set the appropriate Lithium battery protection mode.
