you should not need to mill anything, most likely just a grove so the eye wire can go through the frame

I know I'm late to the game, but there are questions unanswered.


You can use any eyes that are compatible with eblades (reflective, by the way).

Also, you only need to drill 2 holes and tap one of them to fit a screw to make it e-bladable.

Work's pretty simple. If you want to just time your cocker properly, use a high end loader, and run eyeless (what I do.), then there's no need to drill anything for eyes.

^^if its an x5 its probably already been fitted for race eyes. even the mechs came with eye covers, they just go into the frame in a different spot than eblades do. and e2's will work with break beam eyes. eclipse programmed it into the boards with the intention of releasing a break beam kit later on, but never did....so no need to modify anything for the eblade eye.

not sure where it'd line up with the eblade frame...you might be able to tuck them in under the grip panel and not have to cut anything.

Totally wrong..
The X5 has dual detentes and is drilled for race eyes (or break beam as that is what race uses) so if you try to put an eblade eye on it it will look like total crap, and you will have to remove the right side eye cover.

You will need to mill out the frame so that the eye covers can dump the eye wire into the frame in the right spot.

Also NEVER recommend some one drill for an eblade. 99.99% of the time they will f--- it up and ruin the body.

If I was you I would put a fast hopper on the gun and go blind. If you are capping at 12.5 you will be fine anyways.

The break beam eye kits that are sold on ebay come with everything you need except the drill bit .. you dont need to "mill" anything .. just need an eblade kit and drill a hole on each side for the eye

The X5 is already drilled for Break Beam eyes so no modification is necessary unless they want to use reflective eyes. The grips will need a notch as well for the bottom of the covers. DCL-INC sells the Break Beam eyes separately for $20.00 shipped as well.

The break beams never worked wirh my e2 .24 board but you just have to cut the eye covers flush with the body of the cocker thats it. I also have a black and blue fade gx5 in parts if some one wants to pick it up
