I needed a new trigger switch for my m4 so I figured for not much more I might as well get one of these mosfet systems everyone talks about. I didn't realize at the time some of the disadvantages associated with mosfet systems, but rest assured this particular unit managed to incorporate just about all of the negatives.
Using the system with a regular 9.4 volt battery and high power motor I noticed a lot of overheating of both my motor and mostfet. The mosfet blew many fuses as well. I successfully used it in some games, but always noticed that it heated up quite quickly. Eventually I started having problems and traced it back to the mosfet system, which had either melted or blown up. Fortunately the motor and other components of my aeg had survived.

The pro is that even without directions the unit was fairly straight forward to install, but you must be very careful not to break any of the tiny wires (a source of problems with many mosfet designs). Also the trigger switch needed minor filing to fit properly, as it was sticking.

I would not recommend this unit, and tho I'm no expert if you think a mosfet is something you want, I would seek professional tech help and more robust/quality mosfet units.
