    My guess is that you have the V1 Pixel Strips that are 264 wired in series.

    3.2 Volts is not a "full" battery. A fully charged 18650 is 4.1-4.2 Volts. Your board will cease to function at around...

    Data. Without a data signal, neopixels won't light at all. Improper wire gauge will make them dimly lit, but even with thin wire gauge, they will still light up, IF THEY HAVE DATA and Power.

    Where did you get this from? Battery Negative Pad and GND are bridged on Proffie 2.2. They are both common. Neopixel negative goes to the fets. Not sure what your question means. I have...

    The trustfire batteries that TCSS sell have a lower cutoff in their protection circuit. They are fine for tri crees, but not for neopixel sabers. You need a protected circuit battery, 18650 with a...

    Jake,

    Sometimes, I have found that the butt connector (that holds the pin target neopixel blade connector), will sometimes widen the base of the blade a tad. If the butt cap, the blade end is a...

    If you twisted blade hard in socket, you could have bent the pins on the hilt side connector, or jammed the data pin in where it won't make contact with the blade target. But now you're saying the...

    My guess is that since Graflex 2.0 blade holders no longer exist....per se.....that TCSS won't be making them anymore? I think everyone is going towards the replicas, like 89, TGS, KR, etc. The...

    To the OP:

    First suggestion is to triple check all the config settings on CFX.

    Second suggestion is to make sure the blade is fully seated on the pins with the saber ignited, insert the blade...

    too small of a amperage cutoff on the batts causing the battery protection to "trip" and kill the circuit? The addition of the speaker driving is the straw that broke the camel's back so to speak?

    That could work in a MR, but if you look in the sound, speaker mount section: MHS V6 chassis, and order a 18650 battery sled to go in it, that chassis can hold any soundboard. Pre-wired seems nice...
