  1. This is coming along nicely. Works well on my droid maxx with my Aker amp. Just need mic/amp splitter from amazon. Any chance you can boost the volume of the static burst? Too quiet compared to voice on my set up. Then again it could just be my set up. But this is really brilliant! Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  2. So far, one blowing across my face has been enough. The other is a backup. That being said, I have never done a long time outdoors in the Summer. But in hot rooms and limited trooping outside in summer its enough to cool you. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  3. Black fan wire soldered to snap connector black wire. Red fan wire and red snap connector both to toggle switch. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  4. Really all it takes is some minor soldering and electrical tape. Has never failed me. I'll post a picture for you tonight. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  5. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1PCSX-DC-5015S-5V-50MM-x-15MM-Turbine-Brushless-Cooling-Blower-Fan-/150943511038?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2324ef31fe I don't know squat about electronics. That being said, I ordered a couple of these, then went to radio shack and picked up a battery pack that holds 4 AA batteries and has a 9V connection on top, a 9V connector and a toggle switch. I had a buddy solder them together for me the first time. Very easy and cheap. http://comingsoon.radioshack.com/radioshack-4-aa-battery-holder/2700383.html#.VXc0AlKo3VY http://comingsoon.radioshack.com/heavy-duty-9v-snap-connectors/2700324.html#.VXc0LVKo3VY http://comingsoon.radioshack.com/spst-rocker-switch-black/2750693.html#.VXc0eVKo3VY I can send you a pic later if you want.
  6. Suppose you have a genuine Aker MR1506 amp set up, that was not purchased through VoiceBooster. Would that still work with the iComm?
  7. Date of final approval into the 501st on first attempt: 2014, July 9th.
  8. All elastic. 1 inch for shoulder connection, 1 inch for shoulder to bicep and 2 inch for bicep to forearm. The large kitchen knife worked well. Gently rock it back and forth and pry up. Takes about 5 minutes to get 1 hook off. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  9. Bingo! Gave up on hobby knives and broke out a Michael Myers style kitchen knife. With a little elbow grease it came out! Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  10. I am trying, but given the location, I can't get in there to really get under it. I may just have to cut the top off. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. For e longest time I didn't bother strapping my arms. All I needed was the bicep hooks to keep the biceps in place. However, I recently decided to fully rig the arms and now the hooks are not only superfluous, but they keep grabbing my chest plate when I lift my arms. So I want to remove them. I used E6000 and don't want to damage the biceps. Good suggestions? They are not easy to get at. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  12. I'll get one out to you by the end of the day. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  13. Can someone refresh my memory on the current thought process for rear thigh cover strips when you have a trooper with large thighs? I know the rule of thumb used to be, if the two halves close together then keep the cover strip at 20 mm (or 25 mm) regardless of how wide the flat section is. Doesn't matter if the flat section is wider than the cover strip. Is that still true? Second, suppose there is a gap in the back of the thigh even after leaving all of the extra flat space intact. You need a cover strip wide enough to cover the gap, and thus can deviate from the 20 mm. But how wide should the strip be? Should it be just wide enough to cover the gap, or at that point do you just extend it all the way to the edge of the flat section? My assumption would be to keep it as small as possible.
  14. I highly recommend buying a few extra of any rivets (split or cap) that you plan to use, and try a few practice ones on spare ABS. I broke two split rivets before I got the hang of installing them. For the price, if you haven't used them before, get a few extra of each.
  15. Since all is the kits can be customized to fit a range of sizes, it's hard to pin each one into acceptable chest, waist, etc measurements. So the key is that there are some kits built for body builds that differ from the 5'10" 170 lbs screen trooper. RT Mod is really for tall troopers. If all you need is a bit more roominess, consider MTK, or AM.
  16. I did not have to heat bend the belt to make this work. It had enough flexibility on its own. For the holster, I used Chicago screws so that it can be removed as well.
  17. That's how I did mine and it works well. But a word of caution: When you measure the two side snaps, drill the holes in the ammo belt, then bend it around your waist with the canvas belt before marking off where to make the holes in the canvas. If you line it up flat, the snaps will have more preassure on them when you put it on and wrap it around your waist. I made that mistake, and while it still holds, I have had the snaps pop open and just resorted to anchoring the ends with elastic. Does that make sense? Attach the center snap, drill holes on the ends of the ammo belt, put the belt on and mark the canvas with a marker while wearing it.
  18. A sad day indeed. "It is a far, far better rest that i go to, than I have ever known. " I'm mixing Star Trek references, but may he boldly go. ... into the undiscovered country.
  19. Is that a screen grab from the movie, or a stunt picture? I'm trying to discuss this issue in my garrison.
  20. Looking great. Nice build going on here.
  21. Looking good so far. That gap more than acceptable.
  22. Welcome to FISD and Garrison Carida. Who is your advisor?
  23. I saw that originally on comicbookmovie.com.
