The following points have been compiled from various Spyder Pilot reviews. When you read a marker's reviews, patterns can be seen.
From 33 reviews:
• The Kingman Pilot does not chop paint (with an electric hopper).
• CAMD makes setting modes quick and easy; semi, 3burst, 6burst, and Auto is clearly displayed. No more holding a button till lights flash or a color comes on.
• The Pilot is accurate with a stock barrel.
• One player reports that this Kingman Spyder has consistent ball speed fps without a regulator.
• The Spyder Pilot is easy to strip and clean.
• You need a plastic adaptor to attach the hopper to the Spyder making it sit high. One player suggested that with a Viewloader eVlution (don't know about other hoppers) you can slide the feed neck of the loader over the feed neck of the gun, and secure with a hose clamp. This puts the loader about 1" above the cocking pin which is perfect. Another suggested using a Lapco elbow: "it works great".
• The Kingman Spyder is a bit loud; solve this with a new barrel.
• You will need a fast hopper for this gun or you will chop paintballs. Suggested Empire Reloader or Halo.
• The rate of fire for the Kingman Pilot in semi-auto mode is capped at 14 BPS.
• Some suggest that the Kingman Pilot it is the same as the Kingman Fenix but without a gauge.
• Two players stated this marker is gas efficient; one said it was a hog.
