Review: its loud

i found out a way to fix it and make it a littler quitter there's three nubs that push against the motor. I used a dermal tool and sanded it down a little and it stropped being so loud. I guess the motor was vibrating against the nubs, after sanding it down it was better.

Thanks for the mod tip! I turned my Proto fan on & damn thing is loud! no good for scenario games and night time play. sounds like a prop plane coming in for attack though!

my JT fan is a lot quieter! hope your mod makes it suitable for play!

I didn't see any nubs to grind down, but here is what I did do. Took it apart and witha q-tip applied some sleek to the fan shaft while it was spinning. It immediately got quieter. Then I peeled off the masking tape around the fan and cut a piece of heat shrink tube (rubber) and wrapped that around the fan and put it all back together. I wouldn't say it was quiet, but it cut the noise by at least %30 and took out the head rattling buzz completely. It's pretty useable now and I can hear over it fine.

And yes this comment is 3 years later, and no they didn't use any of this time to improve the design
