I have a small update on these...still looking to streamline my process a bit, but in the meantime, I was finally able to get ATS-002 finished off. It is already sold, so don't ask.
This one is fully loaded with a TriCree XPE2 RGB led, a Crystal Shard 2.5, In-hilt recharge and RICE ports:
I also installed a mega-bass speaker:
Because of the inside diameter of this one (it is 1.18"), the speaker was a little too large in diameter to have a holder, so it floats in the saber and is protected from shorting by wrapping it in pvc heat shrink. The pvc retainer clip helps hold it in place.
SD card access:
This one was a prototype, and is not indicative of how the final version will look/function.
These are still a work in progress, and I am working on getting caught up on other things so I can return to taking orders through FX-Sabers for saber work next year. I have one of these left from the initial batch of prototypes, and will try to get it done before the end of October and up for sale in the Trade Federation.
