i have yet to see a review of an UltraSaber with the Ultra Pixel setup.  Does anyone know how the in-hilt PCB is secured in these builds?
Anyone have pictures or a video showing the details of the build?

blade plugs are not needed with the pixel setup since no light is emitted from the hilt when the blade is removed, however, it is possible to install LEDs into a plug and attach a blade side PCB - basically a pixel blade cut off and plugged right after the hilt ends.  one could even repurpose those already on-hand but these are sold at other places.

i guess you already know all that but like the look of a lighted hilt sans blade?

Exactly. I like to be able to ignite even whithout a blade.
And some pixel blade plugs are really sexy out there...

Sorry I'm late to the party, but I just got this saber a few days ago. However, given that the saber took between 3 and 4 weeks to get to me, I'd imagine nobody had an answer back that far. I'm not sure how it's secured in there, but here's a picture of it.



If that helps, cool. I'm new to this tech, so it's kinda interesting to me, but I don't know what you guys are looking for. As for whether or not they plan to do pixel blade plugs, that sounds like a question for customer service.

Excellent!  Thanks for the picture - point!
The screws are probably to hold the board in the adapter which possibly screws into a threaded module?  or they f'n hot-glued it. Smiley
i am surprised to see the heads but one not supposed to look down the barrel anyway, right?
Do you see any screws on the outside opposite of where hilt-side pcb is located?
Does it shift/move around?
If you were to pull the guts out from the pommel and shine a light down the tube, one might be able to see past the switches and back of the module.
mmm...that sounded ungrateful but i am not - promise.  thanks again - you are the first i have seen to post a pic of the new offerings.

It doesn't shift or move around. The Dominix V4 is just a tube on the inside with nothing to stop it, so I'm not sure if it's a friction fit or what. There are no screws on the outside to hold it in. I looked through the pommel end and I don't see any glue other than the glue holding the switch in.

I'm really surprised nobody else has posted reviews or anything with this new tech. I was here when they released the Diamond board and people couldn't wait to post stuff about that. You'd think string blades would have been something people were waiting for.
