I won’t talk about removing the gearbox from the replica because I think that if you don’t know how to do this, it might be a bad idea to try and install the titan 🙂 it is good to know that the Titan has a 12 month warranty but if it has not been installed by a pro, you may have trouble to enjoy it I still need to remove the bolt catch system here this kind of operation is usually doable but take your time, be focused don’t throw the parts here and there some people disassemble a gearbox as they would shit in a box and when they’re done with reassembling the gun, they have a few screws left they don’t know where to put them if it is your first time, go for it, but take pictures so you know how it looked before stripping the gearbox I’ll remove the screws and of course I’ll take advantage of the quick change system to remove the spring now I won’t have pressure inside the gearbox and nothing will spring out of it when I separate the shells I didn’t want to install the Titan inside this gearbox because there is already a MOSFET it protects the electric circuit as well as the contactor but I don’t own many V2 guns and I really like this Avalon Saber so I wanted to enjoy the features given by the Titan however I’ll keep the original parts if you wan’t to see a monstrous rate of fire, please go and watch the video by Airsoft Review he went to OPS store and they did a nice custom with a dual sector gear here they shoot 60-70 BBs per second but you need very good magazines! I’m not interested in RoF, I play in sigle shot but I like reactivity these gearboxes are equipped with a “competition” trigger be aware that if you don’t have the quick change system, you’ll need to hold the spring guide with a screwdriver so nothing jumps out of the gearbox there only was a bit of tension around the tappet plate here VFC gearboxes are equipped with two “self shimed” gears there are small springs removing the lateral woble I’ll remove the pneumatic assembly I won’t need it any more you can check the air tightness Good! then remove the gears, mind the small shims here, keep them where they are, it’ll prevent you from starting from the beginning keep the anti-reversal latch because it is required for the pre-cocking feature don’t forget any shim remove the trigger I won’t need these anymore same thing for the cut-off lever, it is useless this gun is a bit different because there is an ambidextrous fire selector so there are extra gears here slide the selector plate forward to remove it it can be blocked by a bearing this part is made of metal and is black it’ll be important later now I’ll clean the empty gearbox using white gas damn, here goes the warranty sticker ! I’d managed not to break it the first time I stripped the gun it is clean, far far from Cyma green grease ! now you’ll need the installation kit there are extra things here, motor connectors a Dean connector screws and washers there are two types of washers metal ones and insulated ones, the darker ones don’t mix the two types or you could short-circuit the Titan another pouch with smaller screws and washers and the selector plate stickers, which will only be used if necessary I take a moment to thank once again the GATE team they allowed me to use some footage of their installation video I have no talent for graphism so it was very handy to use all right, now you’ll want this space here to be flat and smooth mine is a bit scratchy so I’ll sand it now it is smooth Let’s clean the gearbox if you own an air blower it is also nice to use, but here I’m using white gas now I’ll check that the Titan fits inside the gearbox separate the two parts be cautious about static electricity, and do not lay your fingers on the electronic components especially the optical sensors notice the 5 trigger sensors here check that there’s nothing interfering with the Titan it must be flat take a few seconds to check that no electronic component touches the gearbox these are the three selector sensors I’ll screw the Titan to the gearbox, please use an insulation washer there’s a small arrow so you can’t do it wrong those are the smaller screws and washers I have chosen to use the original screw nice notice that the spacing between the board and the bearing has to be even the screw must not go through the gearbox shell I’ll have to add extra washers here always keep the insulation washer don’t tighten too much I have to add an extra washer.
.. remember keeping the proper spacing here now I’m good to go ! I’ll check if the upper part of the Titan fits the upper shell of the gearbox like this there’s a tiny foam pad now you can tidy the cables they’re quite tough take your time the motor head will go there and you don’t want it to dammage the wires nothing should clog these two holes this is the sector gear sensor and here’s another trigger sensor before putting everything back inside the gearbox I’ll check that it will close just fine mind the wires.
.. the upper part is tight but something is preventing me from closing the gearbox I must remove those three parts, the wires are thicker than the original ones I’ll be back in a few seconds! make sure the gearbox is clean I’ve removed the parts let’s check if I can close the gearbox now perfect ! the next step is about checking if the trigger touches nothing remove the upper part and install the trigger without the spring then put the upper part back and then operate the trigger and check if it touches nothing of the Titan it seems good so I can now do the sensor test you need the sector gear as well as the trigger and its spring close the gearbox again it may appear fastidious, that’s only because I have to do it in front of the camera, in fact it takes only a few minutes put a couple of screws here we can see the wiring with the Dean plug and the motor wires before testing the sensors, I need to prepare the selector plate this is a VFC gearbox so the selector plate is made of steel and black there are other types of selector plates I need to use a sticker, otherwise the light won’t reflect and I won’t be able to use the selector clean the selector plate carefully GATE advise to start with the middle sticker stick it on the edge of the selector plate the sticker will trigger the sensors here now I need the programming card and a battery keep pushing the NEXT button until you enter sensor mode I used the original video from GATE so you can see clearly what’s happening first I’ll test the trigger sensors we can see one of the sensors blinking inside the gearbox this is the sector gear sensor you can also test it with the programming card it also works if you plug the Titan to your computer it seems that my trigger only reaches 4 out of 5 sensors probably because its special shape too mush light can bring errors, so don’t hesitate to turn the light off I’ll check the selector sensors the trigger sensors safe semi auto and once again, the sector gear sensor now I have to put the gearbox inside the lower receiver As it is an ambidextrous selector, I’ll only put it back on the left side because the selector plate is on the left side.
.. as you can see there’s no bug any more because there’s no parasite light semi full semi safe let’s remove the gearbox from the receiver! do, undo, do again ^^ but really, it is faster once there’s no camera take your time though, follow the guide I’m not concerned about having only 4 trigger positions I’ll never use the 5th position anyway, and my trigger has a specific design I’ll lubricate the gearbox and put everything back inside don’t forget the anti-reversal latch still fighting with the wires here ! I like pushing the piston so it slides properly in its grooves I won’t show you how to put the screws back ^^ before I finish, please notice that on this specific gearbox there’s a bolt-catch mechanism with a tiny spring check that the spring does’t stick out of the gearbox here I had to cut about 2mm most guns don’t have a bolt-catch system though now you can go back to the overview/setting video, thanks for watching ! see you soon in the Lair xoxo
