BTC Spectre Mk.II Release Announced: Fall 2016

From www.btcairsoft.com:

Quote:
The Spectre Mk.II is the most advanced FET yet with double the features of its predecessor including nearly every feature requested by the airsoft community. And for the first time in non-proprietary V2 gearboxes - Bluetooth!

New additions in the Spectre Mk.II:

Innovative Bluetooth interface with Android & iPhone devices
- Quickest and most versatile method of programming AEGs. No more complex trigger inputs and/or accessing the battery compartment.
- Program your AEG mid-skirmish in literally seconds with no need to bring additional tools or the manual, just a smartphone.
- User-programmable passcode and a shortened signal range prevents any unauthorized setting changes.
- No need to "pre-connect" to the Spectre in the smartphone's settings. Is accessed instantly from within the app.
- Fully certified by the FCC (USA), IC (Canada), CE (Europe), and 日本電波法 (Japan).

Essential app utilities for both users AND professional techs
- Smartphone app reports battery voltage, current draw, and FET temperature. Turn smartphones into a "wireless multimeter" for your AEG.
- Reports timing of shot cycles and RoF to assist technicians in fine tuning AEGs (eg: motor height) to achieve the best possible cycle rate.
- Diagnostic functions that display which microswitches are pressed in real-time and also what error (low volt, fuse tripped, etc) has occurred.
- Records total number of shots fired since the battery was connected and also during each trigger pull.

Triple fire-mode selector - SAFE fully programmable
- Similiar to the previous Spectre each selector positions can be programmed individually, allowing more than just SEMI-BURST-AUTO.
- Maximum programming flexibility where all three selector positions can have its own fire mode, RoF, precocking, and more.

Largest selection of fire modes for each selector
- Safe
- Semi
- Auto
- Burst [non-interruptible]
- Burst [interruptible] NEW
- Burst/Auto hybrid [burst non-interruptible]
- Burst/Auto hybrid [burst interruptible] NEW
- Semi/Auto hybrid NEW
- Semi/Auto ramping

Both non-interruptable and interruptable burst fire
- Non-interruptable completes a burst even if the trigger is released, whereas interruptable stops mid-burst upon trigger release.
- Until now FETs had only offered one or the other but now you can have both. Also applies to the burst portion of burst/auto hybrid.

Programmable transition delay of all hybrid fire modes
- You can now adjust how long the trigger needs to be held before hybrid mode transitions into full auto.
- Until now FETs only offered fixed delays that did not suit everyone but now you can choose between zero delay or up to 1s delay.

Programmable firing/trigger interval
- Ignores trigger inputs for up to 1s (adjustable) after a semi or burst fire. Helps avoid rapid firing in specialized builds.

Hardware-level semi-only lock for regional laws
- Can only be enabled/disabled by using a soldering iron to remove/bridge a solder jumper.
- Conforms to semi-only laws that forbid AEGs with readily accessible means of bypassing semi-only.
I received a prototype a while ago, and this thing is fucking awesome. I look forward to the actual release so I can get my hands on more.

Other than the programming function what impressed you the most Pesto? They were already the best in the market. Most of the tidbits seem to only apply to very specific situations.
I don't know how long the cool factor of seeing the performance of your AEG on your phone will last but it will be very cool initially I'm sure.

I just hope btc can keep up with demand. So they won't be like unicorns, more like leprechaun's.

do you know if you can do hair trigger on these or no?

They definitely should; the Mk1's were what a lot of high end builds were using, and you could tune those to a hair trigger. No reason why the upgraded version wouldn't.

Yes you can do a hair trigger. The trigger has been changed so that there is a felt resistance, almost a click, when the switch is depressed. It has been moved from the bottom half of the board engaging the top of the trigger to the top half of the board to engage the portion the safety normally does. Cutoff and selector switches appear to be the same.

The data display is very useful if you are in to teching your own stuff, as it can tell you how what your RoF is, you can actually associated a number to your trigger response instead of everyone waving their dicks around with baseless claims, it can keep track of how many shots you expend before you need to change your battery and what voltage it reaches after a certain number of rounds, etc. It is basically a wattmeter built into your trigger board, accessible via smartphone.

The data is not a game changer on the field, but it is very neat to have. Instead of having fixed burst options, it is now programmable so that there is no delay in burst auto hybrid, and burst can be interrupted or non interruptable. Since there is a voltage readout, it also displays what the volage cutoff threshold is for each monitoring setting.

That sounds sweet. Now I have to decide between Titan and this.

Are you able to view the data live? as in I shoot my gun and see the numbers change on the phone right away? If yes, I can think of many stuff to do with it. I wonder if there ever be a programmable version of such units.
