The good news about using the mini electrics is that they are very low
velocity usually less than 250 FPS. Airsoft bb's at that velocity
don't even leave a welt. I doubt they would leave pockmarks on all but
the softest materials. They have trouble even penetrating cardboard.
They are extremely low powered. I can understand the fear about being
hit with bbs but the are in no way comparable to steel and copper
bb's. I have been hit at 6 feet by an upgraded gun shotting 400 fps
and all I got was some welts. The cheap mini electrics are also a
short range weapon 20 feet at most with any accuracy. I don't think
they would lend themselves well to rc tanks. the mini's are all
gravity fed and just not very reliable. To add one to a tank would
probably be more trouble than it is worth.
