    Phil, Welcome to the forum. There are good...

    Phil,

    Welcome to the forum. There are good wiring diagrams for wiring up the NBIV to a neopixel connector in the manual. I would suggest you upgrade to either single strand of stranded 22AWG or...

    OK, but Dmitry needs to tell you if the WS2811 RGB LED DRiver has onboard current regulators for the RGB LED. If it does, you don't need resistors on the LED. If it doesn't, then you need resistors...

    PS, you could always use a cut off piece of neopixel strip to drive your chamber, and just wire it parallel to your blade. That works too. Its cheaper and less complicated than what you have.

  4. I'm not familiar with the board you're using...

    I'm not familiar with the board you're using between the NBIV and the RGB LED; however, typically you will need to resistor each leg of the LED for the associated die. You have to look up the...

    PS, don't forget to resistor your common anode RGB LED for full voltage, unless that board you're using has onboard regulators.
  6. 26 ga parallel for your power and negative feeds...

    26 ga parallel for your power and negative feeds should be sufficient. When I said double it, that was a meathead way of saying parallel. Dmitry's hilt adapters have a slot for your blade resistor,...

    PS, on your pixel and battery feeds, 22 ga will carry the amp load better. 26 is too small of a ga wire unless you double it. It'll still work, but you'll get diminished brightness, and perhaps...

    Dmitry's adapters have onboard spaces for the 470 ohm 0603smd resistors. Not familiar with the RGB driver, but I do use RGB LEDs on Proffie with great blade matching effects, including the cool...

    Not sure how you're going to turn the glass eye into a switch? Might be better off using the slide switch on that hilt for your aux.

    Most of the better batteries for neopixel have a 15A cutoff protection circuit. While most single color blades will draw between 5-9 amps, white blades and some combo color blades will draw 7-12...

    How did that look? I think we're all still searching for the better mousetrap. I like my blades, but I still find things about them I don't like. Might be I stare at them too long, and...

    Yep, that is precisely what I do. I have used them in TCSS graflex, MPP, and DV6 blade plugs. In a U, precisely as you perceived, leaving at least one pixel shining towards the blade, while the...

    I make neopixel blade plugs using the blade end PCB on a blade plug. THen I use however many neopixels I can fit in there. You can use just one, but I find you get a better result by putting as...

    3.7 volts. 12 is probably a maximum rating stamped on there. Figure your resistor for your supply.

    Blackcowl, it wasn't clear you were using a prism until later on. I have modified the bulb release area for 2 switches in there, and it worked. I then use the old slide switch in the clamp as a...

    The momentary button has a switch wire, and then a ground. It looks like your ground is going to negative with the battery negative. I can't see the wiring where you come out of the GND side of...
