Thread: MHS sith dual sabers/staff

  1. #1

    Cool MHS sith dual sabers/staff

    My first CF 7 build is a sith staff for a relative. I had a local machinist make claws and do some custom body cutouts. The rest is all MHS.

    Specs:
    CFv7 sound cards (hacked)
    Quad Cree XP-E2 R,R,rB,G (lens holder modified for max brightness)
    3400 mAh Li-ion batteries (recharge port or quick swappable)
    Easy pommel SDcard access
    Animated RGB Quartz Crystal chambers with all wires hidden
    Two part full shroud with rotating upper half for a CC reveal

    Impressive! I like the color scheme, and the light weathering works well with that saber.
    We all have to start somewhere. The journey is all the more impressive by our humble beginnings.

    A saber worthy of the almighty CFv7. Nicely done.

    Sorry to necropost, but I'm interested in how you wired the LEDs. Did you run lines to each emitter LED from the sound card?

    There were two CF's used.
