Lightsaber Plecter Pixel RGB Strip Blade Staff for Francis
« on: June 04, 2018, 08:33:36 PM »
Hey there Saber Friends,

This is a lightsaber staff I'm making for Francis.


Here is a drawing of what they are supposed to be in the end (just a planning for electronics, really):




This is how one of them started out:





This is what I have so far... it's just one side is ready to show and it's just the hilt body so far. Still kind of rough.



   




The inspiration for this is sort of like a Jedi version of the Darth Maul lightsaber staff from Episode I: The Phantom Menace.


Both sides will be able to operate as individual lightsabers or...




...they can turn into a lightsaber staff by screwing into one another.

The main feature that Francis wants here is that these sabers have two speakers each and have good sound.




So I will be using the new Premium speakers from the Custom Saber Shop 28mm X 2 and also the 2w bass speaker X 2

With a forward-facing speaker on each saber with venting and a rear-facing speaker per saber with extra sound venting so that when these are screwed together there will still be sound venting from the middle of the staff...

   




They will feature a 26650 Lithium Ion rechargeable battery with Protection Circuit and Neopixel capability.



Let me know what you think of it so far and...

And here's some progress shots of the saber being made:


This is the front-facing speaker on saber #2:




This is saber #2 being wired:
