I have been to the saber building forums and still do not get it. If anyone has wired up a color changing lux 3 or a lux 5 saber could you please PM me?

Thanks

I'm not sure why you think you're more likely to find information about there here, than one of the lightsaber forums.

This forum has more buyers, than builders.

You haven't found that information because there are no color changing Luxeon V or III led's. A color changing blade is done by using an RGB led and a multi-position switch and some fairly.....involved wiring to do it. I've seen some people use potentiometers as well to fine tune the colors.

There are a few topics at TCSS covering how to do just what you're looking for, but you need to know where to look (there's a lot there to go through):

This is the best topic for it, really.
