Talking 12V Mod complete

Well I did the 12V mod wiring up 2 100 microferad capacitors on the input and output sides of the regulator as Tuna suggested and it was a total flipping flop. Re-wired it without the capacitors and the noise got through to the vibration sensor causing the Warp to spin constantly so I turned down the sensitivity on the board's pot until it stopped and it works great.

I understand how the capacitors filter out dirty voltage and I am nearly 100% confident I had it wired up properly however it seemed to work satisfactory without them after adjusting the sensitivity to account for dirty voltage. I'll do some tests tomorrow dry firing and with some paint RT'ing; should be seriously interesting...

It always seems to work when you have it on the bench..

Now you just need a warp feed body so it doesn't stick up like that.

I've got a 12v mod that came with my warp, and doesn't seem to have any capacitors, and my warp has always seemed to work fine. Anyone got a pic of the capacitors in the mod, just in case I need to add them for some reason in the future?

The warp feeds the gun just fine, there are no kinks in the hose (which is a CPAP hose with a very smooth internal surface). It would definitely look cleaner without it looped around but the 'spacegun' LCF watching the balls hum around through the hose is awesome

This is the website I used to get the information for the mods. Automags UK, your automag, minimag, automag RT, X Mag and E Mag resource
It doesn't have a schematic for any of the wiring diagrams but if you understand how to wire components in DC circuits its not a big deal.

If the motor brushes haven't worn themselves in. You'll get this problem. I don't have the capacitor mod on any of my warps

I agree with Ando. The noise would be feedback from the motor brushes. Batteries don't supply a noisy voltage. Regulator circuits usually have caps on the input and output because they are regulating a rectified AC voltage. The caps filter out the ripple effect.
