1977 Flying Aces Pinball

Post by Grevier2 on Wed Oct 14, 2015 6:09 pm

Ok guys please don't tell me how janky this machine is! Let me find out.

What I am more curious about is can it be rigged up with a separate solenoid for the flippers so they don't flip at the same time? Can the machine be modified to have the flippers work separately?

I know you guys are wondering the price its selling for.. 100$.. which I know is the higher end of these machines but the playfield is great and I think its a cool looking machine with a cool theme. Plus I think I can learn a bit working on a machine like this.

Let me know if you guys know anything about these machines. (Besides they suck)

I don't know what janky means but it might be the perfect word to describe this. 100 bucks can buy you alot of leds or some spare selonoids.

You guys suck! Thanks for answering my question!

Why would this machine be so bad if the flippers worked independently? It actually looks like a cool machine. Why? WHY?!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seems to me like any other em except this ones actually old solid state.

Also can I rig up the flippers to work independently?

Also I can learn to fix a machine by breaking something valuable or breaking something worthless. I feel like I can learn a bit on this machine.

I have spent 100$ on stupider things. If you guy think its literally the biggest pile ever then I wont bother. But im fairly keen on getting it. If it cost me 100$ to learn a bit and have a few games of fun then im game.

Don't just say its a waste give me some info guys! lol.

Its cheaply made so they could sell it cheap! It was designed for home use.

It is a real pinball machine. Just as Mario Mushroom World is a real pin!

I like you guys but you really suck right now.

LOL!!!!! Too funny!!! I do like the theme and it looked kinda neat. But a buddy Eric offered me a good deal on an old EM to keep me from buying this. Kinda too bad. Maybe. Not sure.

Ok Ok! What about this! It could be one hell of a cool coffee table right? Right? Worst case scenario?

Ok.. Sad

So what your saying is this machine is not something you would want to put on your pinball owners page even if you owned one... Lol.

Wow that q*bert has seen better days! I have never seen that unit before. The game its self its borderline boring after 5-10 mins. Maybe im just not old enough to appreciate that kind of game.
