So my teammate has two axes, one relatively new black one and one silver that has 14 cases through it. I played a game with the broken in one and it shoots really quiet and smooth. It is almost as smooth as my drone which only has 2 cases through it. Should i trade my drone for an axe and if so should he add because he was offering a straight trade or $300. My two concerns for the drone are the trigger (which i will upgrade), and the psp mode. I kinda want to have two markers so maybe i could trade him a iPod touch, PSP, a5, 48 3000 tank, and bunch of other stuff for an axe?? Which would be better for tournament play? I mostly play semi for young gun tournaments and recball allows ramping at my field.

Get whatever gun you like more, I don't think you should be ramping in recball though, but that's just me. And the psp mode isn't that big of a deal, it isn't gonna make you loose a game...

If you like the ergonomics of the Axe I would say go for it, but its all about what you like.

You got to have a replacement to be replacing with. MacD is at the mercy of the board maker.

I don't blame Macdev for putting board modes as an afterthought. Being an Australian company and selling a lot in NZ and Australia, where semi only boards are required, That being said, they should come out with a software update or something.
As for your original question, I like axes except for the ergonomics, everything else about them I love. If you like the ergos and it gets better efficiency, has a better trigger than your drone, and the timeout on the psp mode, I say go for it. mike also make a great video on tuning your axe.

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

I still like everything on the drone better except the trigger and psp mode. The trigger problem can be dismissed because I am getting an after market trigger. How big of a deal is the psp mode problem? Is it hat bad considering instead of one trigger pull for a three round burst you only need two trigger pulls for four shots? What do you guys think?

It's one of mikes personal pet peeves, as I already said, the stupid psp mode isn't gonna make you loose a game. It's not big deal, and shouldn't stop you from buying/using a gun.

I say stick to the drone.If psp mode is your only problem with it,then that must be a pretty damn good gun.And looks are important to me when I am buying a gun.So,I say go with the drone.No sense in replacing what works.

Also MacDev is going to be offering an upgraded solenoid for the Drone, don't know if it will be a free or paid upgrade though.

It comes with the magnet and crazy glue. When I installed it I had to use hot glue because the crazy glue he gave was shit. Other than that its good

srry for bringing this thread back up but new stuff has come up.

I now have two options

1. trade my drone for a black axe with 4 cases through it and not upgrades. It has the optimus board

2. trade my drone+$100 for a silver axe with 14 cases and the shockwave board and cp feed neck.

Will empire give me a free shockwave board if i get the used black axe. WIll they still send it for free even though i am not the original owner?

Well an axe should add if anything, and I doubt empire will give you a free board.
