The new gun is similarly sized and has a similar weight. If I wanted to use a heavier, larger full metal airsoft gun I would've bought their "Heavy Turret" product instead. The new airsoft gun is just better quality (not that there was anything wrong with the original gun). The new gun is still plastic though. So what do I specifically do to shield it?
I didn't use them because I didn't understand why I needed to.
A decoupling capacitor is a capacitor used to decouple one part of an electrical network (circuit) from another. Noise caused by other circuit elements is shunted through the capacitor, reducing the effect they have on the rest of the circuit.
not really. The new airsoft gun has a bigger motor. The solution is simple I would think. We just need the right expert to stumble upon this post. Then he would say, "oh, you need to completely shield the motor by placing blah blah blah in such-n-such way" or "oh, you need to ad caps of this type in this specific configuration". See, that's what I'm hoping for. An actual experienced expert on the topic.
Another kind of decoupling is stopping a portion of a circuit from being affected by switching that happens in another portion. Switching in subcircuit A may cause fluctuations in the power supply or other electrical lines, but you do not want subcircuit B, which has nothing to do with that switching, to be affected. A decoupling capacitor can decouple subcircuits A and B so that B doesn't see any effects of the switching.
make yourself a metal sleeve that fits around the area with the motor, and then tie that into ground.
DC motors have commutators in them, and when the brushs pass over them, they sometimes hit a gap. This gap cause the motor to loose power for less than a hundredth of a second (depending on speed) and will cause fluctuations in the current. These capacitors help reduce the fluctuations by temporarily acting as a load, and keep the current consistent. Motor diagrams 1 and 2 are both good to use, but I sometimes combine the two diagrams, if needed.
