Ascend CF6 Colour Mixing RUN THREAD
« on: November 13, 2012, 02:54:14 PM »
Hey Everyone,
I can announce today that the run is officially a go!

If you're on the list below please email me with your FX-saber name, full name and address. And your preferences for bargraph colour, charger, hard case. I will then send you an invoice - AFTER THAT you may pay the $500 deposit.

(no need to post your preferences here)

I've secretly been working on the ultimate Ascend upgrade fow awhile now. It's a heavily weathered Ascend with the emitter turned down to fit a shroud. I have been looking forward to using the copper powdercoating, but in a lighter coat to give the emitter a pale copper - almost bronze look. I've also lined up a window to reveal the 7 segment LED bargraph onboard the CF. and Best of all. I've found a way to install the CEx for colour mixing AND an internal RICE port!


It's ime to see who would be interested in a run of these. Post your (serious) interest here and I will start a list.






This will be a run of 15 sabers

The saber will have:

- All the above mentioned features CF6, CEx, bargraph
- Bargraph colour will be your choice blue or white, or green.
- Cree R/G/RB LED
- 7.4 v. twin 18500 Lithium ion Battery Pack, 2.1mm recharge port
- Brass aux button
- RICE port and SD card access by taking off pommel - exactly like the Ascend PC upgrades
- 1.5w premium speaker
- RICE cable included
- No blade with this run
- Charger is an extra $30, and there will be an option to include the hard case for $50 plus extra shipping.

Price is $1170, A non-refundible deposit of $500 is due by December 1, 2012 or you lose your spot. The balance will be due when the saber is completed

The timetable: deposits dues Dec. 1, and run completion target will be mid Feb.



The design is the Weathered saber, but I will also be offering a clean version;





Feel free to post questions and comments, but to get on the list; post "put me on the list", or something that makes it clear you are serious. I will add people to the list up until December 1 even if it gets longer than 15 names - in case anyone needs to drop out.



Please let me know if I missed you, or mistook your post as serious interest.

*Deposit PAID - spot secured: in green

I'm interested but it's going to really depend on the timetable. Wether or not I can swing this.

So pretty... probably can't swing, but it'll be interesting to watch anyway. Guess it all depends on the timetable.

Ooooo goodness, this is very tempting.... I am unable to say for sure at this point; hopefully very soon though.  Any basic payment breakdowns/plans at this point?

I could probably barely make that timeline but a january start would be much easier to manage for me.  Idk about everyone else or how that works with you but i figured if i don't speak up now i won't get a chance later

Is it safe to assume there will not be a stunt version of this? ^\^;; I love the design but my funds are a tad bit limited at the moment.
