Scout Trooper Riot Baton (SWJ:FO)
« on: October 04, 2020, 09:19:09 AM »
Whilst I await the #FlashgunChallenge with my esteemed colleagues, I finished up a side project for my scout trooper costume. :afro:

The plasma tube is a little finicky with the aluminium housing, I received a few reminders during the install to insulate the 12 volts better, but I got it to work.  :wink:

short version: changed out the plasma tube for a PRIZM 5.5 and neopixel strip.  It's better now. :wink:

...And super holy-cow, omgomg loud!

Wow, that thing is intense, and very cool!  What did you use for speakers to get that kind of sound?

Glad I didn’t go up against you in the riot baton contest!

It's one of the 4w WOWspeakers from TCSS.  But the trick is that it has about a foot of sealed, empty space behind it for the air to resonate.  The actual resonator might be a little too much because you can hear some of the "cupping" effect, but the massive low end boost mostly cover it up.

Awesome eastern57, and what a coincidence, I'm working now on my 2nd 501st costume and guess what it's going to be ?

I'm considering making a baton too, for the sake of carrying a "saber" even as a trooper.
