Tri LED rBrBW and Forfor vs Neopixel
« on: March 17, 2019, 04:05:24 AM »
Hi guy's.
It's been a while, but when I'm into lightsabers again, I'm always coming back to my roots here.

I just ordered two Neopixel sabers at Sithplanet this time.
I will receive those in May.

Since I can hardly wait, and don't know what to expect, I thought of placing this question here already.
In May I will post some info and comparisons here myself, but can somebody already tell me the difference that I can expenct.

I have here a JQ-Sabers OWK TPM saber which has a BBW LED in it.
Combined with a fosfor blade and the brightness is really amazing.
Now I will receive a OWK3 with Neopixel blade.
Will this be brighter?
Thanks for taking the tine to read and answer.

I'm also receiving a MPP 2.5 with Neopixel blade, but I I know the red blade will be much brighter than that of a RRW LED version, so no quaetion about that.

PS. Looking at my avatar,...
WOW, I was a lot younger back than hahaha. My kids were little and now are crownups themself.
Hope everybody, I;ve known from here are in good health and still enjoying their hobby.

The real experts can chime into this, but from my knowledge, neopixel blades are definitely brighter than regular tri-cree LEDS. And the high drainage for batteries of neopixel vs. tri-cree reflect that

Welcome back!

You were always a staple at FX Sabers I'm glad to see you here again.

I think the best thing about the neopixel is the blade is smoothly lit the whole way up the tube with no diminishing of the light. And the scrolling effects make you feel like you are Luke Skywalker from the movie. When you look at that effect indirectly you really feel like the blade goes in and out. Very cool.

Now of course there are all types of cool effects like fire and stuff like that. For me, I like tuning particular colors. Of course you can do that with standard LED as well but it's also fun with a pixel blade.




I'm afraid the deflector shield with be quite operational when your friends arrive.

Thanks.

An unstable Kylo like blade should be really working with Neopixel

I'm always showing of my TPM and a fosfor blade. This looks so bright it's almost real.
Can't wait till the fully working Korbanth sabers are here.
Hope the sound is as loud as the TPM from JQ-Sabers.
I'm kinda spoiled
