    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?

    How many diodes on your "puck". If its going to the spring pin adapter, you only have power, return, and data, so I think you'll only be able to run one color and one FOC sharing a common positive? ...

    Here is another video where Madcow builds a saber with sound using this chassis system in a modular fashion. Of course, you can wire direct from soundboard to switch, speaker, and LED Module.

    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...

    I havne't done any heavy sparring, just hit a tree with a Heavy Grade blade. I don't suggest that with thin walled, but thick walled survive just fine.

    I am more well-versed in the other board, and yes, on it you can program subblades, but you also have 4 data pads to work with as well. I know CFX has some expanded data capabilities. There is a...

    If you wire a single pixel parallel with your blade line on the same data pad, it will act the same as the first pixel in your blade. You can also wire it in series, where it is the first pixel in...

    Different strips have different protocols for the neopixels. WS2812B, SK6812, WS2813, WS2811. Pretty sure you need to have the same protocol strip to meld them together. If not, they won't work. ...

    Dynaohms are big, clunky, and a simple resistor calculated by Ohm's law for the LED in your switch is best. Resistors can be sourced everywhere cheaply. That is my opinion.

    Your resistors are stout, and will under-drive the LED's a tad. It will work. FJK has a tagline/link to Ohm's Law, and TCSS does have a calculator. You need to plug in the mA/fV of your diodes...

    He said he bridged pos and neg pads on NBIV. Look at the photos in the OP. He didn't photo that bridge, but see what you think about the other wires and soldering.
