Pretty sweet shoto and internals design. One alternative that might be an option is to use one of the switch/pixel adapter pcbs...I like these:

Only suggest since it looks like the av switches drop down slightly into the inner tube...and your batt is just right up at the switch section.

Either way, can’t wait to see the results!

I've had some PCBs designed like that for a while.  I just like my connectors.  They work great and they are very robust.


As for the switch design, the details of how they will actually work just wasn't in the model I was showing.

Aw man, it's a pity you guys did this at 2am on my side of the Atlantic, I would totally have joined in chat just for the KOTOR discussion.
Better late than never.

Look forward to seeing the actual connectors for the switch...definitely adds a new option for removable, which is always my goal.   Beyond my comment, the build looks awesome!
