How to Use the HC Diana

The Diana is a super fun blaster, but if you’ve never used a flywheel or electric blaster before, there’s a few things to know.

#1: Darts

Most blasters and feed and fire reliably, but squished darts can affect this.

Before inserting darts into a magazine, make sure to discard broken or excessively worn darts.

90% of jams are due to bad darts.


#2: Stop revving IMMEDIATELY if no dart comes out

If no dart comes out of the blaster, you might think that pulling the trigger harder and more will help. 


Stop firing immediately! 

If not dart comes out, it’s probably because you have a jam. 

Remove the mag, clear the jam, then continue firing 🙂

*If you continue to fire without first clearing the jam, you risk burning out the motors*

How to clear a jam the easy way:

Remove the magazine. 

Look down the barrel or up the magwell to see if you can see a jammed dart. 

If so, poke the dart out with a stick or other slender object by inserting the stick or object down the barrel from the front. 

The squished dart should fall out the magwell. 

You’re good to go! 

#3: How to Charge a Lipo Battery

Before you use the blaster for extended play, make sure the battery is properly charged.

#5: Use responsibly

The Diana shoots hard and is a high performance blaster. It is not a run of the mill nerf toy. Do not point the muzzle at anything you do not want to shoot. Keep the Diana unloaded when not in use.

#6: Store properly and maintain regularly

Don’t store the blaster with the battery installed. It can drain and wear out the battery if left plugged in for extended periods of time.

It may be necessary to periodically check the flywheels for dirt, debris, and built up dart dust. If you notice it performing strange, remove the top cover and clean the wheels.

Regulary check your magazines to make sure they feed properly. Clean the mags of dirt and debris as needed.

#7: Play with good sportsmanship and have fun!

You’re repping a high powered blaster from HC and Frontline Foam. You may outrange your friends or shoot harder than them, but don’t be a jerk about it. Don’t fire at people who aren’t playing in the game. Nerf is played on an honor system. You may not always feel the hit or see the hit, but take the hit anyway and have fun!

#8: Check out mods, add-ons, and upgrades you can do!

A default or out of the box blaster is a ton of fun, but you can have even more fun by making a blaster your own by modding and adding upgrades. We have a bunch of these that you can check out here.

#9: Share with your friends, on social media, and leave us a review!
