Well I finally finished my Ki-Adi Mundi I got form TridCloudwalker. The quality of the saber was very good and although it was tight I was able to get everything in it I wanted to.
...My normal extreme polish
...powdercoated all the inset lines with black chrome II
...MR Yoda board
...14500 Li-Ion battery with recharge port/kill key
...Red LED on side comes on with power to the board (removal of kill key or charger)
...10 Segment LEDs lit up in order with the power up and down sequence (like Eastern did on his)
...Lux III green---This is just temporary because I had a LED assembly from my prophecy I used. I am having another LED module made for it and I will be putting my P4 Blue in then.
...the black covertec wheel is only temporary. It is the only one I had until my next TCSS order.
...This in not meant to be a screen accurate hilt. I just put my personal tastes into it but kept it simple and clean.
Here is a video of the saber in action...
Here are the pics...
Nice mirror huh?
Below is a pic of the recharge port. It is epoxied to a modified speaker grill of a Yoda saber which is used as the bottom of the chassis type assembly I made (using a MR blade). The kill key is a nozzle of a spray paint can (that gives you an idea of how small it is) with a screw top stuck on it to grip (the screw doesnt touch the + of the recharge port)
Below is the speaker back in place. It is a little bit of a pain to take the speaker out when you want to kill power or recharge it but I didn't want to modify the saber to accommodate for the port so this was the next best thing. I thought of using the brass piece as a kill key and have the port in that location but I wanted to have the brass piece on it when the saber was powered.
I had to slightly modify the edges of the opening so the premium speaker would fit (an MR would fit but I didn't have a working MR speaker...just a bad one to test fitting). I also had to modify the back side (side against the speaker) of the pommel disk so it didn't touch the speaker and distort.
