Thread: n00b! So you want to build a MHS saber huh?

  1. #161


    Thanks for the excellent post! I bought some TCSS parts from JQ Sabers here in the UK for a very basic stunt saber. I started out with a buck puck and 2 x TrustFires then I swapped over to a resistor + a single Panasonic 18650B when that ran too hot and the batteries drained too quickly for me (1.5 hours). I'm looking for serious endurance for costume trooping whilst I spin and freestyle duel. Here's a photo. I'm not a huge fan of the colour (cyan) but this is just a test build. I'm using JST connectors on the LED module so it can be easily swapped out for other colours.

    Next step is to start playing with sound, extend to a staff saber, weather, add more detail etc. Thanks again!

    "Yeah, yeah, I've heard it all before... you want blindingly bright, super loud, running 1138 blinkies off of the cheapest sound card you can find AND you want all of it to run on a battery the size of a dime, and run for a very, VERY long time. That one cracks me up every time..."
