Can someone please confirm that the saber weight is balanced, such that the blade is not heavier than the hilt itself (like the single sided Maul FX).

The Yoda FX has a center point that is aproximately 1 and 1/4 inches from the emitter
or about 1/8 th from the Emitter shroud.

Most FX's are blade heavy to some extent.

I couldn't tell you about stock any more because mine are all converted except for the Yoda
but once the blade is emptied the pivot point usually moves down the hilt further.

(unless you add an absurdly long blade :D)

 :D :D

Not quite yet ;)

I have this one on display with my others... I will be picking upone from Sycor
for doing a conversion with it, but I am going to wait untill a nice aluminum adapter
is made for it so it can be switched between 1in and 3/4 blades etc...

I've got a lot on my plate right now so I'm not in a rush to rip mine apart just yet ;)

Mojo, according to MR, the Yoda has 73 LEDs, not the average 64. That is most likely as to why the blade is really bright.

Wedge, I honestly don't think you can compare the mass/weight of a paddle (something with substantial mass/weight) to that of a "light/laser" weapon (something with negligible mass/weight).  LOL...

That's comparing apples to oranges...LOL

I'm pretty confident that the amount of weight that would be caused by a lightsaber blade would be hardly anything.  But, I'll go to my Physics professor tomorrow and see what he thinks. 

Interesting to theorize however.

I personally think waving a flashlight around would be more comparable than a paddle in water.   :D

DV, if you access to the net when you speak with the prof and ask him about starwars.com's expanation:

"Lightsabers have changed little in the thousands of years of their employ by the Jedi Knights. Those who believe the Jedi order began on the ancient world of Ossus point to the abundance of Adegan crystals in the system as proof. These crystals are ideal for the creation of lightsabers, as they focus the energy released from a saber's power cell into the tight, blade-like beam. Early lightsabers did not have self-contained power cells, and were instead connected by a conducting cable to a belt-worn power pack.
Once unleashed, the power channels through a positively charged continuous energy lens at the center of the handle. The beam then arcs circumferentially back to a negatively charged high energy flux aperture. A superconductor transfers the power from the flux aperture to the power cell. As a result, a lightsaber only expends power when its blade cuts through something. So efficient is the blade, that it does not radiate heat unless it comes into contact with something."


It can be found here:

http://www.starwars.com/databank/technology/lightsaber/?id=eu

I've been trying to figure that one out for a few years now. I wonder if energy has any weight. I wonder if that's why when sabers strike, they bounce off easier and faster than if metal was hitting metal. However, that could be "the power of the Force, my friend."  ;D

I'm impressed...I thought the Yoda saber first off was plain, and just another green lightsaber that the great Jedi put together.  But from the looks of things this saber is much more than that.  I like it.

Is it AOTC or ROTS? Because Master Replicas' website says ROTS.
