Is the Tadeo Ebisu board good for you?

So I have been testing the Ebisu board with my viking and excal for a year now. I have come to a conclusion that The Ebisu board was not designed to work with an excal with 2 mac noids. They tend to draw too much power from the battery that after 300-500 shots the board will not have enough power to function properly. The board then will reset after a burst of shots, making your excal a burden during a match.

If you have Humphrey noids then you should never have a problem. Infact this board works like a dream on my Viking, I love it a lot!

I know excals have always been heavy on battery use, so much so that if you use a cheapo 9V it may not fire properly on a fully charged battery.

Does anyone else have the same experience as me?

Ebisu didnt work in my excal worth Humphries, either. Will just told me that it worked in his gun so that was that... he never figured out why mine just didn't work right. Pop it into my viking and away it rips.

I guess we will never know why, although I am curious to know. I would like to know if it's just a few of us this happens to or is it a very common problem?

It would be nice if Tadeo will address this issue.

I got two Ebisu boards and threw one into a 2004 Viking and the other into a 2003 Excalibur; the Viking one ran perfectly and batteries last for ages (love a real switch) but the Excal would do about a case from a good fresh 9V, I just put it down to older 'noids and two of them so more current drain. Kinda funny having a gun that would go all day on one air fill but use two batteries

Just put an Ebisu into my viking and love it. So nice to be able to fine tune the gun (most importantly, setting it to 12.4bps for PSP ramp)

I also have an older, but compatible with excals, tadao board in my Excal with the Mac noids. Shoots great, but has anyone had any luck with modifying the timings it uses to eek out some extra speed from the gun?

Ebisu came with my Excal, Jared knew the gun because it had been sent to him a few times (and he kind of milled it). Wouldn't cycle. WAS board is in and the Excal is now problem free. I also have MAC 44 noids, figured that spending $200 so the board might work wasn't too economical.

What would the 200 dollars of parts been? Converting it to the new noids?

It might be a battery issue. IF some noids pull more current when fired the voltage will have a short drop. If the drop is extreme enough you get resets. A simple problem to this is to put a larger capacitor on the voltage supply rail(s).

I don't have an excal, just a viking. This is my theory as an electrical engineer and has nothing to do with paintball.

If someone wants me to tinker i would be happy to test my theory and install a capacitor for you.

Thanks, thats what I was thinking, but I like to not void my warranty for a product that is supposed to work out of the box. maybe we should make a group message to tadeo to get them to revise their product.

I have the prototype ebisu board on the way in wills old featherlite. Let me know if you guys want me to check it for any differences compared to the production model.
