    Remote RF kit interest thread

    My brother made this and we posted it in our local Mandalorian page on Facebook and it generated some interest. He is considering doing a run of 5 if there is interest. If everything runs smoothly and there is more interets he will do more. Cost right now he is estimating at $110 shipped in US. The kit will include the receiver and transmitter with 2 switches ( one up and one down)and the servo. Bear in mind he was only doing this as a test for his own helmet as a proof of concept. The buttons on his transmitter will be removed and extended.



    Here is a new video showing the size and possible placement options. The gauntlets are RKD. ROTJ would be left gauntlet and ESB would be right gauntlet.


    Please feel free to ask questions or comment. It can only help us provide you with a better product. We are looking into PWM as an option for limiting the 90 degree of motion and possibly control LEDs in the RF top as part of a future upgrade.

    These kits will include the aluminum shaft to connect the stalk to the servo, battery boxes and plastic mounting hardware.

    I pm'd you about this SK. I am merely posting for my brother who is doing this based on the tutorial that was posted. From my understanding, you were having trouble sourcing parts for these. I did not show the parts I bought from you to my brother. He did this separately and on his own.

    I'm glad you are not mad SK. This was just a coincidence and I pm'd you right away about wanting to do this and how it would look. Thank you for your support.

    So you aren't doing them any SK? Anyway the kit looks good sgtski, but the receiver board is a bit big to fit in the gauntlet.

    SK, does the new one work using pulse width modulation? That is how it should actually work, flip a switch and it sends a Pulse width signal that tells the servo to rotate exactly 90 degrees and stop, hit the switch again and it goes in the opposite direction.

    We will get a pic up of the board fitting in the gauntlet soon.

    Can your conversation please move to pm.

    Our kit does not have PWM yet. We are looking into it. Our kit currently has 2 switches. One up and the other down.

    I got my kit already today and am very impressed! I will create a WIP for it when I get to that stage of my build.

    Great job with these Kyle.

    Re: Remote RF kit interest thread

    Do you know the maximum weight that the servo will lift? The reason I ask is because a couple of years ago I built a unit from the ZipZap tutorial, using what I think was the same 77 low profile servo. It would lower the stalk, but didn't have the power to raise it back up. I was thinking it was because my RF topper had a self contained board with 2 disc style batteries and the LED's. I thought maybe it was too top heavy. I was just wondering if you had any thoughts on that. I'm thinking of getting a new set up ( as mine is junk now) but I'm wary of that 77 servo.

    Thanks for any help!

    Here is a link to show that this servo is pretty strong.

    Thanks for the video!

    That's pretty amazing. I had the worst time with the one I made.
    Thus might be next on my list of upgrades!

    Thank you again,

    Tim
