Installing Grip and Rail

The Storm’s Grip is installed with M3 hexnuts and M3 screws.

The Handguard Rail is installed with M4 T-Nuts and M4 Screw.

The Handguard is installed on the rest of the Blaster with 3x M4x10mm Screws on the top and sides, and a M4x16mm or 20mm Screw on the bottom

Cycle Control Switch

The Thumbscrew knob at the bottom of the blasters adjusts the position of the cycle control switch. After loosening the Knob slightly, you can move the switch closer to the front or back of the blaster to make fine adjustments to the cycle timing.

If your Storm immediately fires in full-auto or goes haywire where it won’t stop, check this Switch. First try moving the Knob position more forward so that the switch is pressed when the Plunger is primed backwards. If this does not fix the haywire full-auto, check to make sure the lever is intact on the switch. The lever can sometimes break off the switch if the blaster is disassembled because the switch is fairly fragile.

Fuse

If you experience a particularly bad jam, or run full-auto for a seriously extended period of time without giving the blaster a break, the fuse may heat up and blow. If the Blaster stops responding, it’s easy to test if the fuse is blown. Simply shim/short/jump the fuse by touching a piece of metal to both ends of the fuse with the battery plugged in, unprimed, and out of Safe mode, and you should see the blaster respond or “jump”. If the Blaster still does not respond when the Fuse is bypassed, the problem lies elsewhere, such as a broken wire or Blown Board.

If the fuse is bypassed and the Blaster still does not respond, check for broken wiring.

Broken Wires

When re-installing the stock, but sure to not accidentally pinch any wires when re-installing the Screw holding on the Stock, or you could end up breaking the wire and need to repair the wire connection.

In addition, if you Pull or Tug on Red/Black wires going into the Stock, you may accidentally disconnect a wire from a connector on the Motor Brake Board. You may need to repair this connection if it is severed.

Motor Break Board Connections

If your blaster suddenly stops responding and the fuse is not blown and the wires are intact, also check the Board Connections. It’s possible that the Board on the back of the Motor has come loose. Make sure the Female Connectors on the board are securely attached to the Male Spade Connectors on the back of the Motor. Repeated removing of the Board and cause the connectors to loosen. I’ve found that shimming the back of the Board with a dart dart can help keep the Board connected to the motor.

If you find that the Female Spade Connectors on the board are loose on the Male Spade Connectors on the Motor, you can use a pair of pliers to gently squeece the Female Connectors so they are a bit tigther on the Motor Tabs.
