so, closed bolt board confirmed.

Damon is sending me an open bolt board, so hopefully I can get my prototype running sometime soon!

Run it from the AR-1 board for now, that shouldn't have any problem powering an MQ.

yea... uhhhh... atm not possible. i kinda mutilated the connectors to get pieces for the uni-t. I was realizing how idiotic it was yesterday.

and uhh, I'm starting to think that the solenoid in the mQ is messed - i've tried just touching a 9v to the wires to get them to click, both ways (cuz for some reason both wires are red.....) and it wont. so I'm gonna get a mulitmeter today just to make sure that things aren't messed up

Wire polarity on the MQ solenoid doesn't matter, that's why both wires are red.

The MQ solenoid does not usually make an audible click, so don't be surprised if you don't hear one when cycling dry. The only real way to test an MQ for functionality is under pressure.

Just tin the leads and tack them straight to the board, it's just a temp solution - doesn't need to be pretty. Just do the very tips so you don't lose much wire in the process.

soo, while I wait for the board in the mail, i decided i was going to mutilate the ar1 board a bit more, so i took off some molex connectors. since I'm running a cap (haven't necessarily been told that i need it, but I think it's a good feature to have) and the UL frame just won't hold a cap of that size (especially with a mutilated stock board and a uni-t in there) I think the cap is going to end up in the bottom tube behind the Mq in a custom little carrier to protect the wires.

since It's been a while, the UL board just won't run an mQ will it? due to dwell and current i think... just want a check before I start taking pieces off the UL board.

if you're still trying to test the noid, pull it out of the housing and put a little pressure on the tip of the core, then pull the trigger/apply 9v battery/whatever. that worked for me, back when i sheared the wires off of mine and had to make sure i fixed it. i don't think there's enough of the core inside the noid with the spring uncompressed to move the core noticeably, and if you push on it a little, you'll feel it if it's functional.

update!

got the board in the mail... and yes, it's an open bolt, 2 button board!! woohoo!!!

my stepdad will bring me the soldering iron home tomorrow, so I can make some progress and solder a connector to the mQ.

cs, I'll be filling out the sheet tonight.

Pretty sure you need a cap to run the mQ.

that's a closed bolt board.

plus, I have a uni-t.

I think, in the long run, I'll want to put a UL yakuza in there, (a pm5 UL frame is what the final frame will be... i think) I talked to Will and he was pretty confident that board would run an mQ without any issues or mods.

MQ's are very very very picky about batteries and without a cap they are even worse. We've got a local guy with an MQ sniper. The thing will be shooting +/-3 in the morning and be +/-15 by the end of the day when the battery is half empty, throw a new batt in and its right back to +/-3.
