- Unnamed- Personal saber CF8 (Starkiller inspired)
« on: October 18, 2016, 11:41:34 AM »
Hello again fellow light saber enthusiasts!

I present to you my own personal saber...I haven't named it yet so I am open to suggestions.
The story behind this saber...I had a few leftover MHS parts from a long time ago so I decided to cannibalize them and create a sort of hybrid saber.
I always loved the starkiller look so I tried to use a few elements of that.
As this saber is going to be used in presentation/ stage combat fights it had to be loud, so I used the largest speaker I could fit in there (1.77" Speaker).
Lastly I tried to use as many of the CF8 features as I could, including the really cool crystal remove/ broken saber feature!

Without further ado

The Unnamed Saber

Specs:

Crystal Focus V8  <---Best board in the galaxy
Tri Cree XPE2 RRW
Extra large speaker High Bass 1.77"
Two led bargraphs
Custom 7.4V Li-ion pack with protection circuit
R.I.C.E Port
MHS parts
Cannibalized master replicas shroud
Custom machined main section/pommel and crystal chamber

Some photos of the machining process:









Testing how it all fits:





And last but not least a wiring time-lapse video:




Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and name suggestions!  :smiley:

Over and out

Awesome! Extra big speaker is great and I like those lights near the pommel too. Starkiller inspired sabers are so cool

Awesome work fella. Yes it has that hint of Starkiller and I love how the saber cuts out on removing the crystal.  :smiley:A cool idea which I hoped to include in mine til I broke the only cut out switch I had :cry:

Thanks bud!
With the Crystal Focus V8 you can cycle through different fonts/colors by applying different external resistor values...really cool feature. In this case I am only making the resistance from 0 to infinite removing the crystal.
I plan on upgarding it in the future to RGB and making crystals with different resistance corresponding to different colors.  :grin:
