    I know covid has probably made it hard to work on a side project, but is this still moving along

    So sorry for being MIA.
    I was locked out of CC and couldn't get in anymore and was unable to reset my password.
    I couldn't remember my password and found that during my last password change I let my browser make a password and it somehow didn't save it.
    Long story short I found my randomly generated password today lol

    Anyway this project is still underway.
    The magnetic clutch system needs to be reworked because the part I made was way to small and demagnetised the magnets by acidentally touching them with a soldering iron.
    I am making the coupler a lot bigger now so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Unfortunately I still have not been able to test the valve again since the latest update but it looks promising.
    Will ge a test done hopefully this weekend.

    I made a new front 5 way solenoid as well which will be tested soon and the Board is also alomost complete.

    My priorities are:

    Front solenoid valve
    Instant pro player just add paint!

    Hey guys another update,

    I had the last prototype since July untested.
    As you may know I am staying in Germany at the moment and a Paintball Marker is considered a firearm.
    One of my prototype markers is technically illigal because it is missing the F-stamp which means I can only go to fields I trust, which is another issue.
    I can only shoot it when I am at the field, shooting outside of a shooting range is illegal in Germany even when it's your own backyard and a paintball gun.
    Due to corona all the fields in my area are closed and have been for a while.
    They were open for a short while October but I didn't make that weekend I said I was going to test and the following weekend they shut all the fields again.
    Between Germany's stupid gun laws and Corona I am unable to test this valve that has been lying on my table since July.

    On the plus side I am reworking the design of the valve which will now also include a pressure relief valve to protect the solenoid from higher pressures.

    I am sorry this has been taking so long. But I think this whole year has been a mess up for everyone.

    EDIT: Oh and I also had Corona which knocked me out for a good month... completely forgot about that lol
