Custom reveal saber install for EyeoftheRaven
« on: March 03, 2013, 10:09:50 PM »
EOTR send me this for an upgrade.  It originally had a US2.5 in it and a cyan led.  It now has a tri-rebel CCW and a CFv6.  I didn't care for the original kill key so I made a new on that looked much more in line with the saber.   It was an incredible challenge to get the battery pack, soundboard, speaker, switches, recharge port, heatsink, and led/optics all in right around 2.5" of space  :P

SPECS:

Custom MHS based saber
CFv6
tri-rebel CCW
7.4v li-on 14500 pack
tcss premium speaker
red accent led in upper can, blue in chamber
custom piping reveal chamber
1.3mm recharge port
1" blade opening

PICS:

Now THAT'S pretty. :)

Great job Kit. Looks great. A great cram-fu it must have been. EOTR... so jealous... so jealous. ;D

This saber is named Serenity. Jedi Yar-Nala made me a wonderful plaque for it, shown below, which I am very happy to be able to display with such a spectacular reveal core saber. The pictures do not do the saber justice.

I'd like to thank Kit again for making such a tough install work and I look forward to receiving such a beauty in time for my birthday.

Right, that is an upgrade of a G-Core saber.  KIT is not the maker, he upgraded the LED, battery pack, and soundboard ;).

That's some cram-fu KIT :D.

Great cram-fu skills, Kit! You are definitely the master now. I'm glad you gave new life to that saber. I enjoyed building it but you have taken its functionality to a whole new level, and your kill key is a welcome improvement!

Wanted to chime in and mention that IMO the outer grip section of this saber is one of the coolest ever.  I love the mods that were done to it.  I may be borrowing that pattern in the future  ;D
