Hello all. I just started down the path of building my own saber. I decided to go the inexpensive route and build the hilt from PVC pipe with additional 3D printed parts attached to it. I didnt really want a replica and wanted to build something that was uniquely mine.
Now of course instead of doing the smart thing and purchasing a board and some other parts I decided to take the painful route of going with an Arduino Nano and building everything myself from scratch. So I am sure all you experts will be hearing from me lots over the next few weeks. Like I said I plan to use an Arduino Nano and build it off of the FX-SaberOS, MPU6050, DF-Player, and DIY 144LED neopixel blades. I just really like the idea of a complete home built piece of kit. Any advice anyone wants to offer is very welcome.
I plan to scour these forums before really digging in so as not to be a burden to any of you ... but I do look forward to becoming a part of this community.
