  • The newly released ASTER II Bluetooth® is a total game changer for V3 gearbox owners bringing a breath of fresh air and brand new capabilities to all V3 gearbox replicas both for AEG and dual solenoid HPA. With Bluetooth 5.2 technology, you have direct access to settings, AEG telemetry, and extended features with the GCS mobile device and smartwatch app. ASTER II Bluetooth® is the first such versatile unit for V3 gearboxes – compatible with both AEG and HPA. The AEG version works with both brush motors and also with brushless motors, even at 11.1 V. HPA enthusiasts, on the other hand, can connect both single solenoid valve and dual solenoid HPA engines. Adjustable trigger sensitivity, automatic Pre-cocking, Active Brake with adaptive mode and reliable optical sensors create an ideal system. The goal of creating ASTER II Bluetooth® for GB V3 was to build a versatile ETU, incorporating the latest GATE technology at a reasonable price.

  • Connect your ASTER II Bluetooth® with the GCS App and get total control of your AEG. Control your airsoft replica from your iOS, Android, macOS or Windows device using a built-in Bluetooth®.

ASTER II Bluetooth®: 19 FEATURES with millions of options

BRUSHLESS MOTOR READY

Your ASTER II Bluetooth® is fully compatible with popular brushless motors even 11.1 V batteries.

SERIES SAFETY LIMIT

Predefined number of BBs fired per series, maximum series length limit – should the trigger jam, it will stop shooting on AUTO after firing the set number of BBs.

CYCLE DETECTION

Automatic detection of a full gear cycle for setting BURST and SERIES SAFETY LIMIT.

The ASTER II Bluetooth® sensor detects the cam of the gear instead of the teeth, making it possible to use all types of gears: Infinite Torque-up, DSG, SSG, 19-tooth and standard gears.

ACTIVE BRAKE

Elimination of unnecessary wear & increase of gearbox service life – automatic adjustment of braking power and manual configuration from 0-100% with an accuracy of 1%.

VIBRATION NOTIFICATIONS

Vibrations signaling warnings & information.

TRIGGER SENSITIVITY SETTINGS

Trigger sensitivity adjustment without any limitation – what’s more, you can now use Trigger Reset point (hysteresis).

PRE-COCKING & DE-COCKING

PRE-COCKING

Automatic spring compression for real life touch & feel – set the pre-cocking power between 0 and 5. Manually configure the pre-cocking time in MANUAL Mode.

There are two Pre–Cocking Modes:

  1. AUTO Mode – the spring is automatically compressed after each shot–you choose the level of Pre–Cocking from 0-5
  2. MANUAL Mode – set the Pre–Cocking values yourself–instead of levels there are time settings, you have to choose the time for yourself by trial and error

Please note: using Pre–Cocking increases wear and tear on the gearbox.

DE-COCKING

Release of the compressed spring in a short and simple trigger and selector sequence. De-cocking extends spring, piston and gear lifecycle. A good practice is to release the spring after every game with enabled pre-cocking.

ROF CONTROL

Rate of Fire reduction for stronger battery use, automatic brake and delay settings, setting braking power in percentages, delay between shots in milliseconds or braking power & delay manually; adaptive ROF allows you to set a specific ROF and the system will adjust the settings itself to achieve the set ROF.

EQUALIZER

You don't need to fully release the trigger to fire the next shot. This option is really useful when the trigger sensitivity level is very high. Choose between

  • OFF – to fire the next shot, you need to release the trigger until it reaches the selected trigger reset point.
  • 2LVL – to fire the next shot, just release the trigger until it moves over two adjoining sensors.
  • 1LVL – to fire the next shot, just release the trigger until it moves over an adjoining sensor.

SNIPER DELAY

Reload or recoil simulation for a more realistic experience.

SELECTOR MODES incl. BURST MODE

7 options in each selector position including SAFE, SEMI, BURST, BINARY, BURST/AUTO, AUTO & SEMI RAMPING

SAFE – prevents your replica from firing, even if the safety lever is removed

SEMI – fire one shot per one trigger pull

BINARY – one shot on the trigger pull and another shot upon release 

BURST – shoot a predetermined number of BBs, which is very useful in MilSims and when using low-caps; there are 2 BURST Modes available: 

  • Full – a burst is shot in full, even if the trigger is released before the preset number of BBs has been shot
  • Interruptible – the burst can be interrupted by releasing the trigger earlier – even if not all the BBs from the burst have been shot the replica stops firing once the trigger has been released

BURST/AUTO – available in Full BURST Mode only; allows for extending a burst by any number of shots – if you hold the trigger after the burst is shot, it switches to AUTO Mode 

AUTO – shots are fired as long as the trigger is pulled

SEMI RAMPING – if you pull the trigger very fast, it switches to AUTO Mode

Please note: In the case of Regional Lock, only SEMI Mode is available. Check law restrictions in your country.

MAGAZINE FEATURES

Simulates magazine capacity and magazine reload. Allows you to set the magazine capacity and the time between reloads, allowing you to use a MID-CAP magazine and maintain realism by limiting the capacity, for example, to 30 shots, and setting a pause in shooting for a few seconds, simulating a magazine change.

TELEMETRY

Airsoft data at your fingertips, including: Voltage, BB Counter, Motor Cycle Counter, Rate of Fire, ROF on SEMI, Trigger Response, and more.

DIAGNOSTICS

Warnings & errors for instant troubleshooting, including detailed descriptions. Errors are communicated once they occur.

VIRTUAL STATUS

Counts the number of rounds left in the magazine, like in computer games.

ASG CALCULATOR

Useful tool for calculations.

SMARTWATCH COMPATIBILITY

Real-time data & remote trigger from your smartwatch with Wear OS or watchOS.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL PORT

I/O functionalities – ability to connect two input/output devices: bolt-catch sensor, magazine sensor, external trigger or other compatible I/O device.

BATTERY PROTECTION & WARNING

  • configurable battery protection functionality
  • protection against overdischarge
  • automatic detection of the number of cells in the battery
  • low battery warning
  • configurable low battery voltage warning threshold
