I want to be able to change the colors to red on a saber I'm planning on getting but can't afford an emerald driver so I'm wondering how hard is it to switch out the LEDs on a sentinel v5? thanks!

If you pay for the Quick Disconnects, itíll be lots easier.  Other than that, I canít provide a good answer, so others with FAR more knowledge and experience than I have will need to chime in (and Iím sure they will).

US does not install quick connects on the basic sabers because of the spacing involved since the LED housing just wedges between the blade and the switch.  If you order a LED module with quick connects the last one I did came with both sides of  the connector so it was easy to clip the saber wiring and add the connector to it. You will then need to add a connector to the removed LED. Matching ones are readily available on Amazon and other electrical suppliers.
