Gemini Concepts Presents:
A while back we ordered one of the grenade sections from Darth Vader and decided now was a good time to put it to good use. We had also acquired a few MHS
pieces that were modified slightly. Nice pieces to use in a custom piece. Master Jedye cut out 8 rings of brass to use over the grenade section and a top ring for the blade holder. The rings are sanded down sinktubing and then powder coated in a Diamond, Acrylic gloss. The MHS pieces are are all powder coated in a mirror black. You'll notice that none of the rings and bands are screwed into the hilt. All pieces are epoxied in place to give the hilt a clean look. The soundboard is a US2.5 which is positioned in the grenade section. The button is a gold plated momentary A/V switch seated in a bezel. The battery pack is using 2 trustfires and is located at the gear section of the hilt along with the speaker and accent LED. The Main LED is a LUX V Green LED
. The pommel is an AceRocket's Obi-Wan TPM pommel
, (with the ring of squares Powder Coated in Trans Gold), once again, a really cool piece to have on ANY saber!
This was our first time using a US2.5, and I think the features are pretty good on the new board. I like the extra accent pads and it seems that they resolved the Flicker effect. The flicker effects seems to be much more smoother than before.
It also seems to be quite a bit louder than the 2.1/2.0. The switch issue is also apparently resolved as I did not need to use a cap for this switch.
Good job Ultrasabers! Im liking the new boards!
Here are a few build pics:
