    Just so everyone knows....

    I went and bought a darth Vader lightsaber and tore it down.

    I made a Video (in first post) with pretty much everything you need to know, so if you have any questions regarding the saber, I may be able to help.

    Dude...that updated video is EXACTLY what I needed! Since the sounds are the same (I've not seen or heard a Yoda yet) then the OW version is the easier route to go with, but I've got 2-3 of the DV and Anakins I bought when just checking these out and it's nice to know I can now use those. Well done!

    This thread is great. I've been looking for a cheap board that I could find locally and this one was easy to find. I have one waiting to be installed and if it's as good as it seems I may do some more with them. I'm new to the whole wiring thing so these threads are soooo appreciated.

    Anyone have any feedback on how/where to place the swing and clash sensors?
    Before taking it apart I found the swing sensor not so great in the Obiwon but the clash was pretty good.

    Itry to mount the swing sensor horizontally, near the top or bottom of the saber.

    The clash sensor is usually attached to the board...

    But if it isn't, I try to glue it to the board.

    Thumbs down

    I have a lux 3 kit green powered by a 4 aaa pack. The new OW board is waiting to be installed. Will the 5w resistor and relay set up work in this case.

    Yup. I am working on that exact set up right now. I'm still a bit confused as to if you actually NEED the resistor though?

    YES YES YES!!!!
    IF you use a PNP transistor or Relay you need a resitor or buckpuck.

    as to what kind of resistor you need depends on your power supply... Then use the TCSS resistor chart.

    If I can do it anyone can. I'm pretty much a moron when it comes to tools, electrical stuff and anything technical.
