Breaks Last Ball in Rotor Everytime..

Like my title says I shoot my Rotor and the very last ball breaks every single time. Is there something I should adjust or just get a Spire??

Mine did the same thing. Just don't run your rotor dry Or you could adjust the ball settle delay on the gun. Bump it up some. Should take care of it.

Factory ball settle delay is 5ms. Try bumping to 7 or 8.

My rotor used to do it on all my other guns also and still dose today.
Im putting it down to no pressure on the stack so its not forcing the ball to settle it just bouncing and clipping the ball.

7-8 ms should help. But I feel its the nature of the beast with rotors.

Why the hell are you letting your hopper get down to the last ball?

Spires sometimes do it to. I had to turn my settle up to 8. But the spires eat battery because there are more electronic sensors running then what is in the rotor.
