    I'm just getting started on my helmet for my custom mandalorian, and i saw that you can wire your helmet with electronics. like a comm system, and an automatic rangefinder(antena). I was just wondering if anyone has any recomendations on what equipment to get, or any electronic schematics on how to wire it up. any help is greatly appreiciated.

    Here is a great tutorial on wiring up your RF so it moves:

    ZipZap Rangefinder tutorial

    You can use that same tutorial for multiple applications.

    As far as comms systems go, those can get fairly elaborate. I use a Radio Shack amp board wired to a pair of alienware laptop speakers and a powered mic all wired up in my bucket. A very few people do something similar, most people just use external voice amps.
