Alternative wiring for TF stalk

    Alternative wiring for TF stalk

    Heres the method i used recently on my stalk and helmet...
    -Firstly i dremmeled the arc into the inner ear peice
    -Then used this as a template to modify the helmet
    -Then attached the stalk and marked the position of the hole on the stalk shaft
    -Make sure the hole is dremmeled rather than drilled using a fine tool rather than drill bit, this will ensure the carbon dosent splinter, just big enough for the two wires to fit through
    I'm quite happy the stalk retains most of its strength after this mod...

    This will definitely help any problems of attaching a servo.

    Thats what I had to do with my ROTJ helmet. TeamFett got to see what happened with mine... when I screwed the bolt on the screw driver striped the wires shorting out the LEDs.

    Good idea right there, TF. Is it difficult to feed the wires into that small hole and up the stalk?

    I actually fed the wires from the top down, they were easily pulled through the hole one at a time...
