    Thank you, I had seen FJK's video. I'm guessing I'm on a mission to drill some wire routes. I am no longer afraid to put switches through threads on MHS, I've done that. I'm trying to shorten my sabers now, to get them smaller. Mako was too long for practical purposes. TCSS doesn't really have some of the components I need to shorten my designs, so I have to come up with new switch solutions. I'm getting better.

    I doubt there will be a true "standard" for some time (at least until a larger company like VV starts making a readily available blade). Too many options with connectors and diffusion. I think if someone has the ability to show a basic build of a Adafruit Neopixel strip blade with whatever connector and diffusion choice, it may go a long way in helping folks get started.

    There are solutions out there where the tactiles are mounted on/in the heat sink of the LED. That's moving things pretty far forward.

    That's why I said what I said. VV (and others) ARE working on it as we speak.

    While I've done it, a video showing how to mount a recharge port in a pommel and not twist the wires too much and put wire channels in the speaker holder could be good.
