Can I have an RF with my APE board?

I want to get an RF for my Rip Clip since I plan to switch my TM-15's stock barrel with a Flasc SQB barrel. I fear that the SQB barrel might not produce enough sound in order to make the Rip-Clip work. Right now I have it set on the most sensible settings the rip clip has, and it barely makes it, so I'm sure it won't make it with the SQB barrel.
I'm not willing to change my hopper, so the RF sounds like a great idea to me. I know it will work with the stock board but I'm not sure about the APE board (I'm not really sure how the RF works really ). I e-mailed a guy from hustle paintball but I accidentaly made him confuse the RF with an RT (Response Trigger). So he never understood what I really wanted (He thought I wanted a response trigger for my TM-15 and told me it was imposible ).

So will my APE board do fine with an RF?

beats me. You may be able to ghetto rig it, if the board isn't built to directly hook up to it

an RF chip sends out a radio signal each time the marker fires, and it signals the hopper to feed.
I suggest writing them a new email

No, the board is separated from the marker's body, and is almost identical, physicaly speaking, to the stock board.

Here's hpw the RF looks:

Empire RF Transmitter Link Kit - For all electronic markers - Lowest price available from HustlePaintball.com

And here's hpw the APE board looks:

Advanced Paintball Electronics APE Rampage Board - TM-7 and TM-15 - Lowest price available from HustlePaintball.com

From the looks of it and a quick skim of the instructions - the RF switch activates when the electrical pulse is sent to the solenoid to the board.

This would mean that....picture time!!!



APE Board ------->Solenoid
(stock configuration)


APE Board ---->RF Board---->Solenoid.

Based on how fast a pneumatic system in a paintball marker can move, and the response time and such of the loaders - it'd make sense for the switch to trigger on the Solenoid activation.

As to whether it'll fit inside your current internals? Beats me. But the concept looks to be pretty universal so long as the noid isn't surface mounted on the printed circuit board.

Screw the RF. I checked this video on youtube:

It seems I nedd two RFs to make it work. I'm not spending that much money.

Well like I said before, I didn't really know how an RF worked. I'll still think about it, I'm not even sure if I'll be able to ge the SQB barrel.

Yep Yep. I believe certain hopper boards to already be RF chipped - though I am more than happy to retract that statement.


An RF system is going to function the same way as a walkie-talkie system will. You need one to talk, one to listen. If you don't chip the hopper too - you'll have a lot of "talk" but no "listen". Both sides need RF capability for it to work.


What about just replacing the board in the RipClip? Or replacing the Rip Clip? I saw on MCB that they now manufacture mounting plates to eliminate the A5 and X7's need for a cyclone. I'd imagine that a TM or otherwise would be produced, or not that far behind.

you could always wire it up, like the old angel or AGD markers used to do. i can't remember what it was called though

Basically, there's a fire from your marker to the hopper that sends the signal, instead of doing it through an RF frequency

He could probably tap the solenoid wires - running them up the eye covers and into the hopper -

I'd have to see how the eyes actually provide feedback to the hopper circuitry - but you might be able to wire into those - sending a pulse to the hopper when the trigger is pulled - making it think that it can see through the ball stack - or it heard a noise (eyes/ears).


....very possible. It would just be hell to disconnect the thing

not really, you just put a plug on both ends.
I'm used to dealing with household wiring, these electronic stuff is weird to me.

Nah, I suck at that kind of stuff, I'll probably mess everything up. I don't want to change my rip-clip because I hate how the marker looks with other hoppers. I only like the Q-loader more, but getting a q-loader up and running is a mess, having to re-load the q-pods and all that.

Maybe I'll end up getting a louder barrel rather than a quieter barrel, something like a J&J Barrel.
