Like i said before, i could be wrong about the colors.. But im not wrong about it having different stock settings regarding gforce sensitivity.. The online manual says 3/5 my printed copy says 4/5..

to any one interested, i just noticed that the newer spires ( i can tell the newest from the previous models by the color of the tray, olders have white trays, more recent models have black trays) have different factory settings than the first models, i started having popcorning issues as stated before, and started to mess with my settings.. before y started changing anything, i did a factory reset, to get the standard values on every setting and that is when i realized something had changed..

in the online pdf manual, it says that the factory setting for the g force senditivity was 3 of 5, mine came with 4, so it was over sensitive.. also, drive pressure was supossed to be 2 of 5 and mine was 3.. so it delivered more pressure to the stack.

i believe (and hope) that this is what caused the popcorning issue.

i did the factory reset twice, just to double check, and it gave my the same over sensitive, over pressure numbers i stated before. i dialed those down to what the manual said they should be. i hope that this will help. will test this next sunday.


btw.. i could be wrong about the tray colors being different depending on the year model.. so dont take my word for it

ill try two things... first, try changing the settings, and then use it a little more, maybe its just my that i am not familiar with this hopper's operation and im just making a huge deal out of it.. i really hope it is fine, because sending it in to virtue is not an option, i dont live in the US :/

If I got this right, the prop just keeps spinning when you're low on paint regardless of whether you're shooting or not, causing pop-corning . If this is the case I would suggest that you lower the g-force sensitivity to 2 from the default (3) and report back and see if that solves your problem.


this is what is happening to me.. i will give this a try, my etek3 is not as smooth that it wont be detected in case i lower the gforce sensitivity setting :)

Not sure why but i would try the force settings and lower them butive had my spire on factory settings for years now and its never popcorned on me

i did this, but at the moment i dont have any paint to test this.. next weekend maybe.. but i will have both comments in mind.


damn.. and i thought that selling my rotor and getting a spire was gonna end my problems.. my rotor jammed, like it was bob marley, but never popcorned, my spire never jams, but popcorns paint :( i reaaly dont want to sell it and go get something else..
