    Without seeing a macro view of this photo, the soldering of your SMD resistors look pretty good. You may have burned a resistor or had a bad one. I have had a couple bad resistors that I couldn't...

    Oops, I missed the NBIV, yep, only activation switch on the NBIV. Good catch DC.

    I would like to request a parabolic tip (neopixel style) for thick walled 1" blades that has a larger gluing edge inside the blade than current thick-walled options.

  6. 3 pin switch? Can you link it in TCSS store. ...

    3 pin switch? Can you link it in TCSS store. You need momentary switches for Aux and power, and you should have separate switches, 2 of them. Each switch, if not illuminated should have 2 poles. ...

    If I have multiple wires going to the same pad, typically I splice them together before the board, and run a pigtail from that joint to the board so Only a single wire goes to the board for common...

    Fredrik has an IR sensor working in the Proffie OS that can sense an IR beam from a blaster, and trigger a clash.

    Here is my take on blade building, this was a 7/8" blade:

    I see you followed the suggested method on wiring your blade. My blades only have 3 wires coming off both strips: Positive(22ga), NEgative(22ga), and Data(26ga). I basically use a modified method...

    I have never videoed cutting in the channel on the Graflex Conversion kits; however, I basically use a dremel cutting wheel to slice in a channel about 3mm wide and 3mm deep or so from the red button...

    Great work Seth, now you need to read the insructions! Ha. Beautiful saber, now figure out how it works. I have a CFX on the way!

    Rumor is that asking re-stocking questions delays the re-stocking process, or there was a rule about it or something. These PCBs are high priority for TCSS to keep in stock, you can guarantee they...

    I cut/repair strips all the time. The pads are indeed small on some of the strips, but with a bit of practice, sure beats buying new strips.

    Just cut off the one pixel that is hosed, and use the pads on the next pixel. DOn't throw away strips because of one bad pixel!

    I would always start fresh. If the switch wires are fine, leave them alone, but the rest of the wires, I'd start anew.

    The problem with using a 5mm Neopixel Straw Hat...

    The problem with using a 5mm Neopixel Straw Hat LED, is that the color order is different than your blade. Most strips are in color order GRB. Most of the straw hat 5mm neopixels are RGB. So,...

    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.

    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.
  23. 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...
