I've been lurking this form for quite some time and this is my first post! After about a year of research I've purchased my first saber hilt, the Roman Props MK1. I'm a huge Obi Wan fan and his EPIV sabre has always been my favorite model so I wanted something as screen accurate as possible. I am planning on doing my own electronics install for the hilt (CFX board with neopixel blade.
I do have some previous soldering and electronics experience but I recognize that I am jumping in at the deep end here, and that I have a lot to learn. I'm going to take this one slow, and do my research to make sure I get it right the first time. I'm starting off with my parts list, and based on what I've read for similar builds (both on this forum and elsewhere online) I've put together the following list:
Chassis - GOTH-3Designs Roman Props MK1-Padawan Var 1 CFX Chassis
Soundbard - CFX 10 Soundboard
Heat Sink - Bespin Custom Props Heat Sink for MK1 Neopiel Sabre
Neopixel Adapter for MK1 Hilt - MK1 (KR Blade) Neopixel Adapter from Wolf69 DIY Solutions
Neopixel Connector - Pre-Soldered Pixel PCB Hilt side connector (7 Pin) from TCSS
Battery:https - Canadian Panasonic Li-Ion 18650 3.7V 3400mAh PCB Protected Rechargeable Battery from TCSS
Tactile Switches - PCB-Mount, 2-Pin, SPST, 50mA from Pololu
High Amp Kill Switch - High Amp Kill Switch from TCSS
Recharge Port - High Amp 1.3mm Recharge Port from TCSS
Speaker - 2W 28mm Bass Speaker
Blade - 1' mid-grade neopixel blade from the Pachstore (36 inch)
I would appreciate any feedback you guys might have on the initial parts list I've put together (any recommendations, comments,glaring omissions/incompatibilities, or other feedback). I do not plan on including a crystal chamber or any additional in-hilt auxiliary lighting.
