    Aug 12, 2012, 3:07 AM - Fully working helmet electronics show off #1

    Got this finished today and had to share it! My dream of a fully working helmet has been realized, I've been working on this alongside the rest of my suit and I'm thrilled with how its turned out! The helmet is a FP budget CC from Asok, beautiful base! I have a paint progress thread up on here as well.
    Quick explanation of the electronic components, a self contained voice amp/modulator made from a radio shack amp board, a 1 1/2" speaker attached behind the dental node, a headset mic cut apart and wired into a power box with on/off switch. Working range finder lights, two flashing red and one solid green wired to a mercury tilt switch and button cell battery box. Finally a Hyperdyne servo control board and Hi-Tec 4.8v servo with a power switch and two momentary switch activation system. Enough detail ****, on with the video!

    One outside with the RF down


    For fun a shot of my MOW jetpack


    And my armor set from Imperial Outpost Armory (RedKraytDragon) all paint work helmet to jetpack is done by myself.

    Thanks man! I'm no master at this stuff or anything but I might be able to help What servo are you using? Brand name, model number if you have it, voltage etc. You're doing a remote hookup correct? So you got a little button fob with the board right? Have you done any soldering on the 9 pins of the board yet? One big thing is it works a whole lot better if the switches/remote lines don't touch at all. Post here or feel free to shoot me a pm and we'll try to get it goin!

    Okay, sounds good to me, pics will definitely help. Second hand shouldn't be a problem, with some soldering done it could make for possible issues, but they can be fixed usually

    Neat stuff! Which amp/voice modulator did you use? In what ways can you modulate the voice output?
