    See my comments in red on your post. Good luck. Is this a MHS build?

    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...

    there are arduino-based saber controllers already on the market which are small in size. Most of the boards from Adafruit require several "shield" components to enable: Motion, Gyro, Sound, and...

    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...

    Looks good Matt, the only thing I would have done is to left the chrome on the quillions, as that would have worked there for the heat bluing look. I guess that erases fear about using the chrome CG...

    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...

    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.
