Since i just bought a rotor and did not see a 'general info' thread:

I thought Id find all the info I could and compile it into one quick reference thread.

GENERAL INFO!
DYE Rotor manual(PDF)

How to take apart/ reassemble

The dye rotor weighs in at 1lb, 5.6 oz. slightly heavier than the empire prophecy, if weight is an issue

Differences in Rotor generations:

"no velcro"- meaning your rotor lacks 4 velcro straps above your battery, helping secure your batteries inside the battery clip.
"no sharkfin"- meaning your rotor had the stock feed arm, not the current model as seen here, the 'sharkfin' piece along the rear of the feed arm helps the anti-jam motion.

Missing/broke a part? Consult these guys! Should have every Rotor OEM/upgrade listed out there.
http://paintballgate.stores.yahoo.net/dyerolopaup.html

Upgrades. There may be a million threads out there for upgrades, but who has the time for that?

GENERAL UPGRADES!

DYE Rotor high capacity top shell

- Takes the stock advertised 200 ball capacity and raises it to ~250.

Rotor color kits
-Almost every color available, give your rotor some love and individuality.

SPEEDFEEDS!

DYE Rotor speedfeed




Rotor SPINE quick feed




EXALT Rotor feedgate


Virtue crown





MOVING PARTS UPGRADES!

SEED RtR upgrade kit
- Features motors, one for high speed and the other for high torque
- Programming options available, with a very unique method of doing so

Virtue soft cycle arm
- Replacement for the stock feed arm, a drop in solution should jamming be an issue for your rotor's stock feed arm.

Virtue upgrade board(iffy)

*i do not own the rights to any pictures/videos in this post.
if i missed something, or something is very wrong, please post and correct me.

Yep - should definitely be a sticky.

But the hopper is so easy to figure out anyway, but good job taking the time to do the write up!

As a side note - modify your links (pics) to Exalt and Spine speed feeds as they are not showing?

Anyone know off hand roughly when the V2 and V3 Rotors started shipping?

EDIT: Just trying to recall. By now there obviously all V3 if they're on a shelf, I'd assume.

I've never heard of this but someone told me that with the seed kit I would need a punch for the upgrade process of the gears supposedly to push the pin out?? Any ideas of what this is or if I need it?
Thanks

Not true. A screwdriver and some grabbers will work fine.

^^ Thanks for the info.. Screwdriver worked fine.. I've been out of the game a few years so I'm not up the new tech. Also, it says the loader is supposed to be solid red and mine is blinking red. I have high torque motor in and it is NOT on a gun. Is it supposed to go solid red when it's on a gun? I have used brand new batteries and different types of batteries.
Thanks again
