cheers man, Yeah the little resin gun cage is really flimsy and in the instructions it advises you to reinforce the main length with brass tube but i did the whole thing just for kicks. it was good fun/frustrating at times.

the air sensor didnt come with the grub screw, i had to buy 3mm one from dubro, and then 4mm ones when my airforce buddy re-tapped and lathed both the head and sensor holes for me. he was adamant that the sensor screw hole was drilled incorrectly, and the top of my 4 blade head's screw hole was lopsided on the top and the hole was drilled incorrectly also. Cant argue with his lasers i guess, so be prepared for the possibility your sensor may need balancing. any engineering place with a decent lathe can sort it for you im sure.
