    Hmmm... going by what I can tell, the pad for the 'fire' red LED is probably a fixed 3.3v 20mA source to power that specific LED. So you should be able to calculate any resistor you may need from...

    you would likely need to replace the resistor that is in place for the LED so it is feeding 13mA to the laser diode rather than the 20mA the original LED is being supplied. is this going to be...

    if it helps I have a saber with a red 5mW laser diode operating off one of the CFX accent pads which max outputs 3.3v 20mA. Operates just fine.

    yeah, I agree with what FJK has said. I could think of a way to do a single board with a proffie, but there would still be caveats. (for a pixel) One would be you would need to do some serious...

    you don't 'technically' need it since there is a voltage regulator (it basically controls how much power goes to the LED) but seeing as that regulator can push out a max of 3A, and most likely the...

    24 gauge if you double up, I personally use 20 gauge so I can keep it to a single line of positive and negative (you can also do this with 22, but I like to have some leeway on amp load). As for the...

    Well, it all depends on the PCB being used, the newer ones are pixel and have labeled data in/out pads that will make it much easier to wire up. As for attaching them to the CFX, there's two ways...

    That is correct, if you are using a sound board you don't use the buckpuck, but you will need to put on an appropriate resistor so you do not burn out the LED on accident.

    I already knew they were 1.15" ID, took that into account when I did my assessment. It's not that you are SOL per say, it's just a lot for a first time build and would be expensive for a commission....

    Yes, it'll work just fine, the CFX has 4 channels so you could use a quad cree if you really wanted (overkill). And yes, you'll still need a resistor.

    The tip on a cree setup isn't really lit up too much regardless of being clear or trans-white. The setup looks good, but if you want a brighter blade I would suggest a tri-cree (you would wire each...

    Not sure why you need arctic silver in that list. I would suggest getting some 22 AWG wire for the battery/neopixel connections. 30 AWG will not handle the current a neopixel blade pulls.

    Then yes, you would run the data line from the board to the crystal, then from the crystals data out to the neopixel connector.

    Let me rephrase. Do you want the crystal to be considered by the board the first pixel of the blade, or do you want it to share the config of the first pixel of the blade?
