Just a quick update for everyone - I FINALLY received my stuff back from DR after a lot of waiting and unanswered texts. I'll post pics (?) later this weekend after I have a chance to open the box and inspect the saber for myself. Thank you everyone for your help & input! I hope those who still have unfinished business w/ DR get some resolution  :-\

Did he actually do any work? Or did he just send back the parts?

I honestly haven't checked yet.  I'm trying to deal w/ a sick 4 yr old and a super cranky 2 yr old ATM. I want to wait for a "quiet time" to video my unboxing and take pics (just in case). According to Ducos, my saber is completed , minus  calibration of the CF. I have asked him repeatedly for a build log ( led, battery solution, installed fonts, etc, but he hasn't responded to any of my requests  :(. You'll be the 2nd to know after I do ::)

Glad to hear that Ducos sent your stuff back, like you said he had promised to do.


Time will bring the real end of our trial.  One day they'll be no remnants

Ok guys, thanks to everyone for the well wishes (and to IA for his help!). I hope everyone else who "got stuck in the mud" w/ DR gets out alright. I'll be posting in DR's feedback thread shortly. In the meantime, here are some pics of the saber I got back from him. It started out as an (MHS based) US Arbiter and after scoring a CF V5 a few runs ago, I decided to turn it over to DR for some of his creative license. I included an Ace Rocket AOTC Obi pommel and a replica Graflex clamp to spice things up - think Obi inspired broadsword . It's not everything I wanted, but it's close. Another smith will hopefully be doing some tweeking to it in another month or two when they're available. That said, may I present RENOVATIO.........

original US  Arbiter


DR upgraded (RENOVATIO)


features include recessed in-hilt recharge, blue bar graph, blue led/ purpleish  FoC, blue A/V switch as aux, mini metal tactile switch near emitter for main power on/off, custom shroud near emiiter, rumble motor in the grenade section, and mild weathering. This thing is long and LOUD!!!

That is a fantastic improvement on that saber!  nice!  the weathering really gives it some character, as does that emitter shrouding.

I have that same footrest/ottoman thingy!  Though, one of the side handles ripped when I was pulling the darned thing by it.  Flip over lid as a workbench works great when a show is on I can't miss (like Face Off!)  :D
