Gangstar Paintball VLocity Upgrade Chip



Gangstar Paintball VLocity Upgrade Chip

These chips are a simple, drop-in replacement for the stock Vlocity chip that will increase the loaders battery life, speed, and adjustability. We here at Gangstar have been hard at work trying to make an easier, more user friendly interface with more settings then ever before seen. In just a matter of seconds, you can swap out the stock Vlocity chip for ours, and increase the speed, and efficiency of your hopper, and in turn, your gun.

Exactly what does this chip offer?

-Improved Battery Life
-Gangster Spin Technology
-Easy To Use Programming Mode
-Three (3) Feeding Modes

• Zero-Force Mode
• Semi-Force Mode
• Full-Force Mode

-Five (5) Breakout Mode Settings

• Off
• On – No Delay
• On – After 5 Shots are Fired
• On – After 10 Shots are Fired
• On – After 15 Shots are Fired

-Eight (8) Speed Settings
-Eight (8) Tension Settings
-Sleep Mode After 10 Minutes of Idle Time


More Information
-Due For Release At The End of November
-Place Preorders either at the Gangstar Website or here: http://www.allpaintballsupplies.com/...hip-p-836.html


•You can head to the Gangstar Paintball site to place any inquiries
•You may also PM me questions or post them here; I will do my best to answer until the owner of Gangstar is back.


Gangstar VLocity Chip FAQ with further explanations:

How easy is it to program the Gangstar chip?
Programming the Gangstar VLocity chip is quick, simple, and easy. Simply hold the programming button, turn on the loader, and you are in Programming Mode. Cycle through the settings by pushing the button, and then hold it down to enter the setting you wish to change. After that, it is simply a matter of pressing the button the number of times corresponding to the desired setting.

What is Zero Force Mode?
On Zero Force Mode, the VLocity will essentially act as an electronically assisted gravity fed loader, similar to the Viewloader Revolution. The loader will only feed when a ball passes through the feedneck, and no tension will be put on the ball stack. Perfect for recball or anyone who wants to save batteries.

What is Semi-Force Mode?
On Semi-Force Mode, the VLocity will feed when a ball passes through the feedneck, and then maintain pressure on the ball stack for five seconds. Semi-Force Mode will allow for fast firing, while conserving battery life by limiting motor activity to only when it is necessary.

What is Full-Force Mode?
On Full-Force Mode, the VLocity feeds when a ball passes through the feedneck. It then applies pressure to the ball stack for five seconds. If there is no change after this five seconds, the pressure applied will slowly drop until it reaches zero. For those who need the highest rates of fire at all times.

What is the Gangster Spin?
The Gangster Spin is a very special feature to the Gangstar VLocity Chip. When the loader is on and in either Semi-Force or Full-Force Mode, the programming button acts as a motor control button. One tap of the button will cause the motor to spin backwards, hopefully clearing any jammed or broken paintballs from the feedneck and tray area. Holding the button for half a second will force the motor to pulse forward, forcing any paint that may be jammed down the feedneck.

What is the Speed Setting?
The Speed Setting is fairly self-explanatory. It is how fast the motor will spin when a ball passes through the feedneck and the VLocity feeds. It may be set from 1-8, and even at the lowest settings, a consistent fifteen balls per second is fed.

What is the Tension Setting?
The Tension Setting is the amount of tension put on the ball stack when the motor maintains pressure. So on setting 1, there is very little tension put on the ball stack after the marker is fired in Semi-Force Mode (or perpetually in Full-Force Mode). On setting 8, a greater amount of pressure is applied to the stack. By using the Tension Setting and the Speed Setting in conjunction with one another, the user is able to find the ratio between battery life and loader speed perfect for them.

What is Breakout Mode?
With the stock VLocity chip, when in the lower settings, the feed rate may drop when the loader is “jolted” into use. So in situations where markers may have been sitting unused for a period of time (such as before an NPPL match), the feed rate may falter if the loader is suddenly forced to feed a high rate of fire (such as off the break in an NPPL match). The Breakout Mode on the Gangstar VLocity chip makes the motor feed at full speed for thirty seconds after a desired number of shots have been fired. Again, this is to ensure a constant and high rate of fire are maintained at all times.

So what are the real advantages over the stock chip?

I dont see a huge difference.

The main advantage is battery life. I'm still waiting on exact numbers, but on the lowest setting, the batteries last a very long time and the hopper feeds a consistant 15+BPS.
EDIT: The fastest setting is also substantially faster than the fastest setting of the stock chip, while maintaining comparable battery life.

Awesome. Honestly guys for a price like that it will easily be payed back in battery life. So how is this working, there are seperate settings for speed and tension?

I dont get the breakout mode settings either. Please elaborate?

I'm writing up an FAQ as we speak. It will explain everything in further detail.
As for videos, it's a matter of getting a camera. I will see what I can do.

That was a slip-up. Originally, Gangstar had a Halo board in the works, and was planning on applying many of those features to the Vlocity chip. The Halo board was scrapped, and the old features were copied and pasted.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
