saber sd question / makoto blade
« on: March 27, 2010, 04:00:44 AM »
is it possible to power a makoto v3 blade with the hypedyne sabersd?
would i need to purchase the hyper led driver? or would it be possible to do it just with the sabersd?
a know thers no driver with my mako set up just a sound board and led strip blade

so basically i want to have a makoto v3 blade and saber sd in my hilt... how do i go about doing it?

I know Jim stated that the adapter that we received with our original Hyper SaberSD boards a couple of months ago allowed for it to be used with other technologies besides the Hyper Blade.  If you plug in the adapter to where the Hyper Blade would normally sit, you then have like 5 or 6 wires that you can solder to a Luxeon, an LED drive, a rumble motor, etc.  We've been told that it is usable with a Makatosai blade, but I don't think anyone has done one up yet.

Not sure if you would have to resistor it or whatnot, as some of the others who are more "techy" than I am might be able to clear that up, because the Hyper SaberSD works between I believe 6-14.4V

Might want to try and get up with Matt (Jedibum) over on the Hyper forum if you have questions.  I believe he has done a couple of different variations with the Hyper SaberSD.

haha theres no suprise.

anyway to answer your question, the hypersd is not a driver board it is sound ONLY. so in which case you have a couple options.
1. you can buy a driver board from hyper 89 and shipping
2. get a mr sound/driver board and run it as a separate circuit on a dpdt switch (this is what im probably going to change my dark avenger to).
3. get a makoto driver and wire it up same as the mr board

hope this helps

Do Makato's blades use the same kind of jack/socket the Hyperblades use? If so (and the Hyperdyne one is pretty standard), you could rewire the jack so that wires correspond to the correct sections for the Hyperblade driver. I am thinking about this as a possible solution for my bladeless Hyperblade hilt.
There's always a bigger fish.
