JSS/Omega One -"Desert Alliance"- CF v4.3 Alliance Hilt Lightsaber
« on: September 07, 2011, 06:51:55 AM »
After a long wait (which was well worth it), I happily present:

Cordaroyfog's - "Desert Alliance"

This was a collaborative effort between JSS and Jango, both of whom went above and beyond to get it done.
My original idea was desert themed, with gold and blue, in that regard it came out perfectly. The gold foil in the tsuka openings was Jon's idea and for me it made this saber what it is.


Specs:

CF v4.3
LedEngin 5w Amber LED
Gold Quartz Crystal w/Amber Accent LED
Covertec recharge with 3.7v li-ion
Gold foil in tsuka openings
Custom Kill Key
Blue LED grip screw hole Accents
Amber side LED Accents
Aux switch in bling strip area
Illuminated Power Switch

Soundfonts:
Rainsizzle
Episode III - Obi/Ani
Yoda - nonvocal
Episode I
Episode V Remastered
JSS ROTJ

How come you didn't offer that one to me in trade for the Stormtrooper bucket?  :D

You have the power spec incorrect. It is a single 18650 3.7v 3000mah

With the low forward voltage of the 5w amber, and the small area for the batteries,  I determined this would provide longer run times with the same volume levels as using a 2 cell pack.
I tested it with a 2 16430 cell back and there was not a notable difference in speaker volume or clarity.

I'm glad you are enjoying it.

I know why that saber is on a mirrored stand.....when you're that pretty, vanity is a given.

Wow! That's beautiful saber! I wasn't around for the alliance saber run, which I'm gutted about - this refines something great to another level again. Congrats Cordaroyfog and hats off to Jedi Yar Nala, Wat Tambor (for original design and fabrication), JSS and Jango (for mods to this one) for superlative work.

EDIT: ...and just occurred to me that the name could be abbreviated to 'Dalliance'  :D

What a beautiful looking saber. You are 100% right about the tsuka, it really stands out. I think the amber and blue accents really help convey that desert feel. It's intricate, without being busy. It really does look fantastic from every angle.  Compliments to the saber smiths.
For my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us… and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter! You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you, me, the tree, the rock… everywhere!

This is a sexy saber. And that Goldish yellow coming out of the amber... gorgeous.
