Luke Ep VI HERO
« on: September 23, 2009, 03:21:49 AM »
- lux V@1A
- 2 x 14500 li-ion cells with PCBs in a home made batt pack
- bottom side crystal chamber visible thru the speaker grill
- JST sub mini connectors, no desoldering required
- working triangular leds
so far my best / most compact wiring job on a CF despite the inner guts aren't that pretty.

BUILD LOG
Cutting some acrylic disc for a double helix chamber, let the sound and wires go thru.


Crystal chamber in progress, screw and epoxy are used since it's not a revealed chamber


what you see from the pommel


Size ref for compactness


Activator box and JST micro connectors


side view


Activator box details




Custom machined emitter plug



Pommel view, one is focus on the inner crystal the other one on the recharge port

How do you like the JQ hero Erv?
Despite it's size, I find the grips to be most comfortable, and it's very easy to spin.

yeah... it's big, indeed ! I don't know about the accuracy of the measurements to be honnest, if you have a link, that would be interesting, I'll be glad to compare.
The grips are really confortable for a SW saber (usually horrible to spin canon sabers aside of the qui gon maybe).

I REALLY like the emitter plug and the USB keychain power indicator! I WANT, I WANT!

Great job on the saber, too. I had a chance to see Jango's at the summit, but I think it was undergoing some repairs at the time so I was unable to play with it...I was surprised at the size of the hilt, but at the same time it was a very impressive build...and I like how you did yours a lot. Now someone needs to do a V2 with that... ;)

cheers !
this one I have, it's the "non hero" version. I actually found the proper blueprint in my archive since.
It was a mess in my HD, much better organized now :-)

Your OK Erv' lol I was talking about the guy who owns Sith Archives. He didn't state it was the V2.

Fantastic saber Erv, I like the fact that this version of the luke ROTJ is bigger as I found the standard version was a nightmare to spin due to the control box (however I'm going by the MR forceFX Luke ROTJ not sure if there is a different one to compare to)
