ESB Graflex with Yoda DIY, CF V6, CEX, RICE and Recharge Port
« on: February 03, 2013, 01:25:22 PM »
Hey Guys. First off I love the forum. I've been lurking for a while and I've done a few builds but this is my first post.
I know it's nothing new as I've seen a few Graflex Yoda kits out there with the cf6 and cex color extender but i haven't come across any with RICE and recharge ports as well.
It's a tight fit and required some modification but I think it came out ok.
Love the kit Yoda! It was a really fun build.

Here's the recharge port right above the crystal chamber. You can see the cex board tucked in there as well.



Here's the RICE port just above the 7.4v 14500 battery pack.



And of course some blade colors.











I'm really happy with this one. Nothing beats a Graflex.

Congrats on your build man, good achievement. Vintage or replica?

I thought Mersenne built one with RICE and recharge, but it may have been RICE only.

Thanks.
It's a replica I picked up a little while ago. Blas-tech grips and tcss circuit card.
Also put a 2w speaker in there. Not much room but still sounds good and loud.

No recharge port on that one (mersenne build) but we went for a modded custom crystal chamber instead to try and replicate yoda's high end chassis designs. But a recharge port was an option i was just too impatient for, haha.
The saber looks rockin'.  Welcome to the CF6 Vintage club, no discounts, membership card or benefit's whatsoever, it's great :)
