I couldn't figure out how you routed the wires for the bottom batteries. Do you have a picture of the bottom batteries? Also, what are the pin-outs for the recharge port?

Just got mine a little bit ago and I'm still drooling  :P

Beautiful work of art I must say and I can't thank both LDM and Acerocket for working together to create another masterpiece. I'll hopefully get a review of this one up with my pile of reviews to do over xmas vacation.

Thanks again guys!!

I'll finally be getting mine today.  I think it should have been here on Saturday...the xxx weather probably delayed it.  That's okay though.  I'm still looking forward to it! :)

Drill another hole at the back of the chassis from the battery compartment to run the wire up through.  The recharge port is easy, (+) from battery and board to middle pin, (-) battery to one outside pin, (-) board to the other outside pin.

There are some pix of the battery wiring in one of the posts of the finished run, but they are kinda hard to see.  PM me if you have any trouble and I will help you out. ;D

Here are some pictures of mine, next to a static version that I've had the last several years.  I chipped away the black paint on purpose to make it look weathered.  There are LED's in the valves but one LED has fallen out and there are three valves instead of two.  As you can see from the pictures the belt clip on the static one fell off a long time ago.  Also the emitter on the static one is aligned different.

I didn't take a pic with the blade in it because for some reason when I got the saber water some how had gotten into the blade and messed up the core material inside.  Marc and I have agreed to go ahead and make me a new blade.  So hence why Marc was pissed at the USPS, and rightfully so.

I actually prefer the one Marc made compared to the static hilt, it's lighter and over all much cooler.  I'm very happy with it. :)

Pictures are clickable.
