When I got it, everything was packed in their own seperate sections, which I liked. Now when I decided to install it, I ran into the problem of the trigger sensor (where the trigger hits the clip) was stuck on a piece of metal in the trigger frame. So I had to mill out the inside of my trigger frame in order to have the board slide in. I got the Lucky Stage 4 with the MAC noid, so with the noid and the board being seperate, it makes it easier on not being able to break the board. After taking some time with the derlim in my trigger frame, i adjusted my trigger to hit the clip better and then ran about half a case of paint through the gun. I was amazed by the board, I was going to get the predator board but I believe this board outdoes the predator board. I havent been through all the modes yet but from the ones I've tested out, I like very much.
I would not buy another board for my Ion, the Lucky Stage 4 with MAC noid has convinced me that it's the only board that is one of the best out there, and for the price of it, you can't beat it. Besides the milling I had to do, the board was easy to install.

Only board with a different Noid
GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE
FAST, FAST, FAST
None? Cost maybe?
The box the board came in was nothing fancy, no metal tins. At first I was slightly confused. It came with the board and battery harness in one bag, the Mac noid and connector in another bag, the hoses and the new Lucky Green rear banjo in yet another.
They do not have the noid attached to the board, at first I was upset, but later realized how awesome it was. The about 8" connector on the noid allows you to take the frame and body apart with out taking the whole board out. Nice feature. Since all the hoses are attached to the noid it is not a big deal.
As for hoses, they are connected to the noid using metal barbs, a HUGE plus. There is a new hose that is needed to connect the noid to the new rear banjo. It looks like a small QEV combined with the banjo. I am speculating that the noid sends air out through that banjo, as there are no other holes in the noid.
The board has a stock plug for the membrane pad if you wish to add one.
The board has four dip switches on it. One is for the tourney lock, a second one is for the eyes off ROF (set to 8bs, but this can be changed if you turn off the dip switch, and the 3rd is for anti-first shot drop off, if you want to use the feature you put the switch on. The 4th is not used, I am guessing for future programing. The switches are not used to program the board, that is all done via the trigger.
The LED on the board is insanely bright and very easy to see outside. When the gun is powered on, Instant on by the way, the eyes are set to on and the LED is BRIGHT Green. If there is no ball in the breech then the LED goes red. If there is an issue detected with the eyes, the LED goes yellow and the ROF is dropped to what ever you set it. I love that feature, you truly should never chop a ball with this board. You can manually turn off the eyes as well and the LED is blue for that.
The board has more modes than any paint baller would ever need. I am not going to bore you with all the modes, it does all the biggies Semi, Ramp, Full Auto, it also has a few nice ones. Training mode, similar to that found on Egos, so you can practice walking, and a Demo mode for firing the gun indoors with out paint. It is very easy to set the board from the trigger. One of the other very nice things the board has is Quick start modes. There are seven total and they correspond to most of the tourney standards. With only a few trigger pulls you can set your gun to for ex. PSP Ramp (capped at 15 bps) or CFOA Semi (capped at 15 bps).
I took the gun to the shop and did a very quick test to make sure everything worked. Aired it up with no leaks (always a plus) Fired a few quick dry fires and loaded up the hopper. Because of time I only tested the gun on full auto. WOW it rips. The gun had all the stock settings, except, put it on uncapped. The board has a nice feature called safety shots, it lets you shoot 3 (or how ever many you set) shots in semi before the mode you select kicks in. It also has forced shot so you can force the gun to shoot even it does not see a ball in the breach.
over all an awesome board!!!
100% recommend the board. It shoots ropes, the metal barbs wont break and the board programing is awesome!

Smart Parts Ion
Lucky S4 w/ Mac Noid
Halo B w/ Rip
Pure Energy 68/4500 Tank
Proto 14" Barrel
Orang ADF Detents
Strengths: Very very fast. Easy to adjust. Super high flow noid.
Weaknesses: Noid leaked. Eyes didnt work.( But they do now!!!!)
I picked this up at my local shop for $120. It was either this or the Virtue board, and this one was cheaper and had the mac noid. Also the owner of the shop recommended the Lucky board because he said he had several cases where the Virtue board leaked. I went to install it, which was weird with a two piece board and a pain because of the noid wire. After i finished installation i aired it up only to find a leak at the barb on the noid that goes to the qev. I thought, 'This is BS'. It wasnt bad so i just dry fired it at Uncapped on Response mode. It went very fast. I put it on 25 bps and it actually went a little bit slower! Anyways when it came to putting paint in it, the eyes didnt work! So i took it out and played with my stock board for the day. I took it back to the shop and they fixed the noid leak by replacing it. It apparently was the wrong size hole for the barb. The eye problem remained though. So I left it with them. I called back a few days later and they said they had the problem fixed and shot ropes! i have yet to try it out due to a lack of air, but i will let you all know when i do.
EDIT: I got my ion back and the board working great. It was just something with the eye sensitivity. Antways this thing RIPS TO THE MOON!!!!! It is intense. Now i need a V35 for my Halo. Also i wrote about the problems i had on the Lucky S4 thread on PBN and Lucky Tech sent me a PM within minutes asking what exactly what was wrong. A++... for customer service!!!!
Best board that i know of! Go get it now! Just takes awhile to get used to the manual. 20/10 if i could!!!

Well the programming is top notch
after chrono and some games no probs
pain to install/uninstall.
Noid/chip board not attached
hoses/wires too long
when installing either tape wires running from noid to board together or you will be in for some problems. the board on it's own fits nice and snug, but when trying to install with noid attached it is nigh impossible to not damage the wires, this is due to the fact that they have to run either up over (by your trigger switch) or down and uder by your battery either of these causes problems by getting in the way
the other problem I have ran into is that due to the extra wires/hoses with the new setup the slightest twist or bend causes leaks from the interior macro lines I have contacted lucky and am looking for a replacement wire
I'd recommend this but not for the faint of heart the installation is tedious and tricky if you are buying the stage 5 you will have to have it milled to fit the stage 4
Various boards for cockers mainly and fidgeted around with my friends Ion with T-Board, Virtue, Blackheart and such
Right now Smart Parts Ion, Lucky board, Q-lock Feedneck, Uni tech Barrel, and now a Scythe Trigger
More modes than others
More options than others
Installation took me 15 minutes rather than 10.
Lucky is batting 1.000
DO YOU WONDER WHY THE LUCKY SITE IS SOLD OUT OF THESE ALL THE TIME. Coupled with the MAC noid this board is more efficient, more programmable, and more user friendly than all ot the others.Im pretty sure this is also the only board with 2 training modes to help you with walking the trigger (this is good for new players and people who like to hold their marker all the time). Lucky, I bow down to thee.
Spend the money on the board AND the mac noid if you can find one. Its worth the price and for 120$ its still cheaper than the Virtue board.
Smart Parts ION, 45/3000 psi tank, lucky spitfire stage 4 board, Viewloader VLocity Junior hopper, ion max'd silver grips and body, virtue easy push button, on/off system for air system, Q-lock feedneck, stock barrel, stock trigger
Read in review.
Read in review.
Strengths- Great, fast, easy if you read the instructions, new noid
Weaknesses- comes a little sloppy out of the box, putting it together takes a little long but other than that there is none.
Well I had my local store install it for me yesterday and played with it today. At first air started leaking from the inside of the gun! I thought it was a solenoid problem but i took my gun to the store and it ended up that the hose was loose and needed to be tightened. Once i got back to the field this board was RIPPING LIKE CRAZY!!! Whoof it out fired my VLocity Jr by 6 bps at least! It works amazing!
The only recommendation i have is GO BUY THIS BOARD it is cheaper then a virtue yet almost as fast but comes with a new noid and the virtue doesn't!
hybrid clamp feed neck,
jr. vlocity hopper.
great L.E.D, great consistancy and accuracy.
Kind of complicated, if you read my review it tells you.
At first it was complicated and lucky, no matter how good there customer service is it is hard for them to explain over the phone so go to ur local shop. they will explain everything. just bring your gun and your manual.it sometimes goes aliitle weird but refere to ur instructions and/or call lucky. they have another website just for instructions. great led and reaction time. when i push in my ion bolt and turn it on, if i stick my finger in the breech than right awat it turns green which means ball in breech. from around 100 ft away a nail a tree on my lawn perfectly every time. really fast i went threw 100 balls just by walking it in around or a little under 15 sec
Get this product I can asure you it will be worth it when u use it at a local feild. If u get it something goes wrong i think lucky has a life time warranty.

This board out of the box looks great. I installed it and used it maybe a week later. I loved it and it was soo easy to change mods and settings. When i went to practice a kid comes up to me and was liek aww man thats nice (picks it up) I'm a beast with shockers, then i said....it's an ion... then he said well it shoots great for an ion. =]
Definitly buy this board. I don't think ill ever be buying a differnt one. Othe boards such as the Virtue, Ape, and Tadao cost 130$ - 150$. The lucky is 100$ and has more featuers then these boards.
