This kit comes with two circuit boards with a button attached to one and a servo to the other. The boards communicate with each other via a small 433MHz chip. When the button is pressed the servo turns 90 degrees up or down depending on the current state.
The helmet part is powered by 3 AA batteries.
The gauntlet part is also powered by 3 AA batteries. A new and revised layout also allows the device to lay flat.
This kit will require some engineering to fit into your helmet. I will supply you with enough materials that it should be easier, but don’t expect a plug and play experience.
There will be several servo mounts of various shapes included to aid in the mounting process.
A magnetic ear cap is also highly recommended.
Included in the kit:
- Low profile servo
- Transmitter module assembled on a custom circuit board housed in heat shrink
- Receiver module assembled on a custom circuit board housed in a 3d printed box
- Servo shaft extender (x2)
- Servo mounts
**Extra dummy buttons are available for purchase.**
Approximate Kit dimensions: (D x W x H in millimeters)
Servo: (56mm x 23mm x 25mm) This measurement includes the mounting brackets on the side and does not include the gear head. The servo will extent about 27-30mm from your helmet on the inside. I have a large head and an animefan helmet. My head barely fits as it and I still can use the servo no problem.
Receiver Box: (57mm x 36mm x 22mm)
Receiver Battery Pack: (69mm x 49mm x 19mm)
Transmitter: (70mm x 25mm x 12mm)
Transmitter Battery Pack: (69mm x 49mm x 19mm)
- Alco Switch
This is an accurate alco switch used on the right/whipcord gauntlet in ESB/ROTJ/SE.
- Push Button
This is an accurate push button used on the ROTJ/SE flame thrower gauntlet.
- Glove Button
This is a rubber nubbed button that can be attached to your glove and pressed more inconspicuously. The wire has a quick disconnect at the wrist to make it a little easier to kit up.
I Velcro my button to a compression glove under my normal gloves. It adds a little bump, but nothing noticeable to the average person. I am able to either trigger the button with my thumb or by hitting it against my blaster.
An in stock kit ships in a day or two under normal circumstances.
A out of stock/backordered kit will ship in 2-3 weeks. This is either because I do not have the parts for that kit, or I am sold out of the standard kits.
Tracking will be available via PayPal and account portal here on bh51512.com when the product ships.
