Ok so I have been searching around and I found out about this mosfet that is fairly new. It is the PicoAB (information here: http://gatee.eu/inde...emid=82&lang=en), so I was wondering since I never had any experience with mosfets will this fit inside the Kwa 2GX gearbox? Since if I'm not mistaken this also goes in conjuction with the trigger contacts of the gun. Also if anybody had experience with this mosfet can they shed some light on this sucker?

If this is your first time installing a mosfet, I suggest going with more of a standard size mosfet. If you install a micro-fet literally inside your gearbox and that micro-fet fails, then you have to open the gearbox to replace it. If a standard size mosfet fails, you only need to replace the mosfet on the Supply Wire. This size mosfet should fit inside the gearbox, but may require some modification to make it work.

Specifically regarding Gate brand Mosfets, I have never used one.
Should you go with this brand, let us know how it works out for you.
Make sure you know the voltage and amps specs on each mosfet for they are not all the same.

That looks very interesting.  I too would like to know how it holds up.

A quick search found nothing about installing one of these inside a gearbox.  I have an open Lonex gearbox & tried to position a 9x20 mm piece of paper & I don't see it fitting.  Might fit with gearbox modification.  And then there's the wiring to deal with.  It's more $$, but you might want to consider the BTC Spectre.  This does replace the trigger electronics & is a fast & simple drop in.  Also, the safety lever, screw & spring, anti reverse latch & spring, and cutoff lever, screw & spring can all be removed.
