Plecter Labs / Does CFx have proffie style motion fx?
« Last post by Scorpion on Today at 07:11:13 PM »
I have a cfx saber in the works but I’m very much leaning towards the proffie as I love the way it mimics the motion
Does cfx have this feature?

so, er, one last dumb idea.

...It's Cup Rapier time!  :laugh:


Hahaha! :cheesy:  Oh no... no no no... At first it doesn't seem too bad until you realize the scale... and the fact that you have a pie tin on your lightsaber. :afro:

I've been wanting to cross off a lightrapier off my build list for a while, but not like this.  :cheesy:

I've taken it off now, but the crazy thing is, it wasn't that uncomfortable or unwieldy to wave about. If I can jury rig a holder, I might actually make a saber around that in the future.

LED SABERS / Re: Possible Contest Ideas

Besides, the majority of the work happens in the last month or two anyway. ;)

...Or after. :cheesy:

So, FJK, any news of that challenge idea of yours?

No. I have a feeling that contest will have to stay where it is for now. If something changes down the road, that’ll be a different story.

Fair enough. In that case, is it worth taking a vote on the challenge ideas submitted so far and get that ball rolling?

so, er, one last dumb idea.

I've got the reflector left over from when this saber was a flashgun, and I've been wondering what to do with it. Can't use it as a bowl, because it has a hole in the bottom, and I've used the retaining ring that held it onto the reflector unit as the ring on my emitter...

...hmmm...

I think the iron chef idea is cool but I think it limits the contestant pool to USA a bit, given the current state of post worldwide, also some folks would get their parts way before anyone else (not sure if that matters).

I love the "Golden Saber" idea as well as "The Jazz Challenge" other materials. they sound like they would both yield very unique sabers.

That's a good point.  I used to live in Japan, and it could take months for stuff to get to me from the states.  I think we'd be able to overcome that with a longer build time lines.  The flashgun challenge, albeit rudely interrupted by a pandemic, was 7 months long.  IMO, that should be enough to keep international members interested.  Besides, the majority of the work happens in the last month or two anyway. ;)

General Discussions - SW / Re: Charging a lightsaber with wrong voltage?

Well, you're probably using a packed 2 Cells 3,7V. Damage depends on they way they are connected together and if they are protected or not. But anyway, in doubt, I would not use them anymore.

Hi everybody. First of all sorry if I'm completly in the wrong section but I can't find one where
I can post my question.

Here's it is, I own a custom lightsaber with 7.4V batteries. However, the other day I was chargeing it at (what I thought was 7.4V setting) but turned out I've accidentaly flipped it to 11.1V ?
Now I discovered this after 2-3 hours of charging. Then fast pulled the plug and well now it seems
it only gives away strange flickering sounds. Have I acidentaly destroyed it and do I need to make a repair / change the batteries. In other words, did I fry the batteries or can it be saved somehow?

Any help would be most grateful, and again, sorry mods but I didn't now whereelse to post.

Many Thanks
