    Anyone know anything about Ape boards?

    Ok I have this interesting problem and wondered if anyone may know a answer....

    Ages ago the board on my X7 fried so I decided to invest in a Ape board and FANG trigger for it.
    Anyways board comes and I fit it along with the trigger, Put it in semi works great then put it into FA mode and set the board to reactive (dont really like auto LOL)

    Now this is where the problem begins...
    Pull the trigger and the board goes into a uncontrollable full auto!
    Let go of the trigger and she just keeps firing!! The only way to stop it is to hold down the trigger for a few secs.

    If I change the mode to ramp or something else it does exactly the same.

    Anyways I buggered around with the dwell and debounce settings and god knows what else before finally getting annoyed with it and putting it back in the cupboard (few months ago this as the Etha is my main gun now)

    Now today I felt like tinkering and decided to go play with it again.

    Now it still does exactly the same as you would expect but just for interest I set it in FA mode to not work, That worked fine the gun wouldnt fire.
    So then I decided to go through all the modes on the board, Semi worked fine same as in the other selector BUT full auto mode also works! And when I let go of the trigger even after only 2 shots it stops just fine!
    All other modes Ramp, PSP etc all go nuts!

    So has anyone else ever come across this??

    Sounds like a bounce problem! The trigger may be set up to light.

    When the marker fires the recoil is causing the trigger to move, actuating the micro switch. If the trigger is adjustable give it a bit more travel and try it. Will try and find a video to give a better explanation.

    I installed a Tech T fang trigger which is adjustable.
    But dont think I can adjust it in that was as the trigger has a magnet on the back that operates the switch and that doesnt really move much.
