    Aug 16, 2011, 11:36 AM - FP Gauntlet Paintup Mods. #1

    These are Fettpride gauntlets which I have painted. They have Mojo darts installed.

    Here is the right gauntlet painted and weathered. I have also added two remote transmitters .. One will control the rangefinder the other will be the jetpack exhaust..

    I will be posting the left gauntlet with its features soon.

    Picture one should show you the batteries.. there is a 3v nickel size there and an 12v security battery... It fits perfect on the arm with room to spare.

    One is a 315Mhz seeedstudio and the other is a 433mhz Security remote. The 315 is connector on the receiver side via relays.. it is two channel. I have a second transmitter in the other gauntlet that will turn on all lights in my suit with a single switch. so beacon lights chestboard, the 4 thruster lights and the red led on the left gauntlet. the 433mhz receiver is in the helmet that controls the servo for up and down.. im adding a few other things to the left gauntlet. I'll have pictures of that set up soon.

    Here are the left gauntlet pics. img_1830-1-jpgimg_1831-1-jpg

    The remote here turns on all suit lights second button for 12v lamp is wired directly to 9v to conserve LED power, and the two 3 volt laser diodes are wired directly to the pushbutton switches.

    Yes a shopping list of all the parts to make this happen would be a real nice add for the community and a you tube demo video would be very cool as well.

    Coming from a darkened doorway with ambient orange glow and blue filled fog you enter the scene and with some "Back pack got Jets" music playing in the background then as a faint spotlight sweeps onto you - you activate the lights and jetpack! walk down the catwalk and turn!
