Russrep Luke V2 with CF6
« on: December 13, 2013, 06:24:16 AM »
Hey Saberland.
As the subject states here's my install of a modified Russrep V2 with a CF6.


Specs:
- Russrep V2 hilt modified by Parfaitlumiere, 1.25 ID through pommel and clamp section, Holds 1" blade, Custom blade plug
- Long V2 lever by Caz, Parks replica Graflex Clamp, Pastor Jedi knurled cone knob made into the kill key
- Slothfurnace gold circuit card
- Crystal Focus 6
- 7.4v Li-ion 14500 Battery Pack
- Tri-Rebel GGW, Green wired in series for main color, White FOC
- Switches under circuit card
- 2w speaker located in clamp section with 4 sound holes
- Green and Red accent led's under clamp
- Rice port on top of battery pack with access through pommel
- Top half unscrews for sd card access
- A bunch of custom boot and menu sounds

It's actually pretty bright considering the narrow opening in the neck and good and loud with only the four graflex clamp holes. I may make a vented pommel cap for even more volume.

Thanks for looking.

Looks good!! Russrep conversions are a challenge too, you did a nice job.

On a side note, what's the make of that SK pictured??

Thanks Jango. I was thinking JK, their weathering is pretty distinct. I was not, however, sure of he year.

Yeah,looking great,I told you it was a good idea,using only the clamp holes for sound.
in the worst case,you can just add some holes on the pommel cap,just send it back,I can make modifications.


Why did you put the led at this place?
I made a special led holder to put directly in your emitter,especially valuable for 3 endor or indus version,and of course it would get far brighter using the custom led holder.
Just do the test,with and without,no comparition...

yeah, i gave it a shot but i liked the cleaner version with the led housed in the hilt. also, with my setup with the sound board in the upper ribbed section it wouldn't have been possible to open the saber to get to the sd card.
definitely brighter with the led in the emitter on the base you made. was definitely a compromise but it's still bright enough for my liking.
