    Ok, a few things.

    You should be able to run both LEDs off of the two switches and the one battery, though if you have room for a 7.4V pack, I don’t understand why you wouldn’t have room for 2...

    If you’re using a pixel blade, you need a 15A drain battery.

    Welcome to the Forums.

    That company isn’t usually mentioned in these parts. Electronics can be put into the saber, but you’d likely have to send it out, unless you have experience installing...

    Generally, no they don’t. With those, the polarity matters.

    You would be correct. Yeah, that was a discussion today, as well as prototyping other stuff.

    For the most part, it is a tight fit, and in some spots, a VERY tight fit.

    For the most part, you’re on the right track. Regarding the switches, you may be able to use the latching switch as the activation switch with a CFX (you’d have to check the manual), but I think they...

    If I had to venture a guess, the third switch is to help reflash the board. The components on the board may just to help determine the final parts that the production board will require.

    I received my prototype, and with a tad bit of sanding, it seems to be fine. I’ll mention it again to Tim about adding those (and a coupe, of other things I designed) to the store.
  15. Yes, however, I just recently gave Tim the...

    Yes, however, I just recently gave Tim the designs for those, so they’re being worked on. The CFX goes in the CFX disks, and the breakout board would need its own disks (which I’m awaiting the...

    Yes, you can skip versions. I would recommend that you download the RICE version for the FW you’re planning to go to. I would also make sure you have the matching config package, as there are a lot...

    Thanks. It’s sometimes nice to do hilts that aren’t etched from end to end.

    I agree with Jay about the Y-connections. However, I rarely ever try to attach two wires (say the positives) to a recharge port. I just attach one, and “y” off of that wire.

    The “Evil Twin” Saber

    THE “EVIL TWIN” SABER


    I was approached at the beginning of July to do the saber pictured. If you’ve read any of the older EU books, you’ll know who the “evil twin” of Han and Leia was. The...

    Ideally, you want to only remove the rear grip to either remove the battery ( if you’re using swappables) or access the SD card/USB port. That’s one (of many) reasons why placement of things like...

    What Tim said. All my Neopixel builds are with the CFX. Feel free to check out the wiring video I did about 18 months ago on it. It’s in the video section.

    It depends on the color, but as Tim said, 30-45 minutes would be the norm, depending on the color(s) you use.

    It realistically can be anywhere on the circuit. I’d examine where you currently have it, and find out why it’s breaking.
