  1. Not yet, I have gone back to a wired/chest amp setup for now. Hoping to have the audio setup strapped to me before even putting my armor on, simplifying things.
  2. It's been about 14 months since I began my journey and I want to thank everyone in Garrison Carida, First State Squad and FISD for all of their help and guidance during my build. I had my first troop last night with our friends in the Old Line Garrison; a Make-A-Wish foundation event for a 4 year old Star Wars fan heading to Disney to train with Lord Vader! Awesome group of people, the family was so appreciative and everyone had a great time. Makes all the work worthwhile. Plus, I get to hang out with fellow Star Wars geeks, which is an added bonus!

  3. Hello! Requesting status update. TK-52421 Garrison Carida https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=24054 Thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Looks like I need a low-latency transmitter and earbuds for this to work...glad I don't keep track of how much I spend on this armor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. TaoTronics transmitter and Supersun headset. i Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just tried a Bluetooth transmitter and earbuds with my own scratch built SHA but the 1/2 second delay was super annoying. Not sure what other wireless options I have that aren't cost prohibitive. Hate having the headphones attached to the bucket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I am using ukswraths hovi mics and amp and built my own hearing assist from Canakit amp boards. Sound level isn't like an Aker, but no one has a problem hearing me, unless I guess I was across a noisy room. https://vimeo.com/199097421 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. A little shocked at how upset I am at her passing. I didn't know her personally, but it feels like I did. Like I just lost a family member. Another piece of my childhood has died. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I can concur with that idea. I have the back of my thoughts a hot water bath to make sure the overlapping side was as flush with the other side as I could get it. I used industrial white velcro. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thank you both! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I use the rubber gloves that came with my Anovos kit. Little sweaty, but the added bonus is that I can still use my iPhone touch screen. Might upgrade to something later once I swap out the plastic guards for latex. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I am working towards basic approval and have done some work on the belt that came with my Anovos kit. I added some plastic to the backs of the sides on each side of the center section and removed the two top Chicago screws, patching the holes with some material from the back. Will this work for basic approval until I take he plunge and step up to a Kittle belt conversion? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I figured that might be the case. This whole build has really been trying my perfectionist/OCD side while I attempt to satisfy my geeky 'screen accurate' side. A Rogue One build might be in my future, given the symmetry and screen accuracy combined in one, lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have added some paint to the ends of the frown on my Anovos bucket. Not sure if it looks right. Went off of ukswraths build and he left the sections between the new paint and existing paint, white. Just looks odd, like that white space should be painted black. Thoughts?
