    This is a call to all tech savvy people out there, i really need your help and advice.
    the plan is to customize my Fett Jetpack so that it shoots dry ice/ smoke from the thrusters in short bursts
    controlled from my gauntlet. Much like in this pre production video....see 4.30 min

    i have had a look at portable smoke machines from these guys...

    obviously any of these machines are gunna have to be stripped down and adjusted to fit into the jetpack
    but the primary issue is to have one that can be powered by battery.



    i was thinking of buying a cheap smoke machine from maplins and taking it apart to see what i can do. Would anyone know how to make a battery power supply for something thats powered by a mains plug???

    I kno its a bit of an unusual build but my objective is to create a slightly more realistic/ dramatic interpretation of Fett for future troops and pay homage to the Bounty boy.
    All suggestions and advice very welcome or is there anyone on TDH that has done this with their Jetpack??

    Thanks.

    I found this one that runs on batteries. phantomdynamics
    I have a big one for Halloween parties and such, and there are a few components that get pretty hot. Might be something you'll have to deal with if you take it apart to retool it.
