I had just gotten a spyder flash w/ LCD. I just don't know how to set it up. Things I need is where does the battery go and what kind. I'm assuming it goes in the handle. Also what does the f1 and f2 buttons on the back of the handle.

Thanks

You can use 9v's but a 9.6v battery will work better and is what came stock with the gun. You can find the manual here. It doesn't help much, but it looks like F1 cycles through the menu, F2 is the select button. F3 is on the inside of the grip and is probably a tournament lock. They're not very complicated, so probably the only thing you can adjust is the rate of fire (up to 13bps) and the fire mode (full auto, 3 burst, semi).

Forgot to mention, the battery goes inside the grip. Take off the left grip panel to access it.

yeah , one acts as the safety i believe you hold to take safety off F1, F2 I believe puts safety back on and lets you cycle through modes, then F1 lets you adjust firing rates. Then you hold F1 to turn safety on and lock the mode then hold F1 again to turn off safety. It has been a couple months since I played with one. If its not how I said it is it is very similar. Play around you'll figure it out.

If I didn't buy so many guns for the sole purpose of fondling them i'd be a very rich man.

Thanks for the help I got it all figured out now except for one thing. On the feed neck there is just a java slide on feedneck. Nothing to hold it on. This means the only the java stock gravity hopper can fit on. I don't know what to do about this because I would like to use my proto primo hopper on it (which won't get jammed like the java hopper) but, I don't know what to buy. Do you guys have any suggestions on what part to get. Also the previous owner put a little bit of duct tape around the side of the feedneck to make it tighter but it still doesn't work. I could easily take it off though.

Put a piece of electric tape, or a rubber band on the feedneck of the Primo. It should help it stay on.

I can't. The bore size I guess(size of the ring at the bottom of hopper and feedneck) is the same size. So I would have the hopper staton on by tap alone. That wouldn't work. Any other suggestions. I wouldn't mind buying a feedneck to put on if that's what I have to do. I just wouldn't know what to buy.

You get the vertical adapter for a hopper.

Or you could get something like this. I believe the Flash uses the "no holes" feednecks.
