This question is for the masses.
Do you find that the sound of the fan(s) is very loud? Between the bucket muffling sound, and the fan, can you hear anyone?
I am trying to decide if I would want fans in my RG bucket, or attach the fans under the robes somewhere and pipe air up.
I helped at SDCC '08

I run 2 fans, one at the back of the helmet for my neck and another by my brow. Both keep the air moving, and I've never had a problem hearing people.

Im looking into maybe selling fan kits that i can get (battery adaptor fan and switch) would anyone be interested if i get that running???
Oct 31, 2007, 7:33 PM - Re: Helmet Fan help
Do you have an idea of how much they would run and how big they are?
I am going to need two at some point

well it depends on if my friend (works in a car stereo store) can get more of the ones i found there about 1 1/2 inches (square shape) and stick out about 1/2 and inch very quiet to i will try to post pics in a bit of how it looks

I keep keep an eye on this thread. Sounds good to me
I saw someone with fans and they were under the costume, not in the helmet and they were pretty loud. I would like to try to stick my fans in the helmet somehow, there is room at the dome of the RG helmet, but I have heard it is next to impossible to get them to stick.

I run 2 9 volt in series with these 2 from radio shack. They are the same size but half the thickness. The push button switch, and battery adapters are from radio shack too. They have run about 12 hrs total so far, and still work great.
I have no noise problem with these. I can heary everything just fine.

Hey instead of computer fans could you use ps2 fans?
Cause i was in my garage and found my old old ps2 and it has a fan so how could i get that to work?
