Inside your buy'ce
« on: Nov 08, 2007, 08:46 PM »
Just wondering what the inside of everyone's helmet looks like, here's mine:

On the side and on the back are my 2 fans. One to blow cool air in, and one in the back to vent the hot air. In the front of my helmet I have the microphone for my voice amp. The helmet liner is from a hard hat. My head barely fits in there right now, ha ha  :D.

Two fans, one on each ear, craft ring installed around the back, and a switch for the fan.

So far I've determined that the fans don't do jack squat for me...and they're just too loud to hear.  My switch came unglued at Halloween this year...I'm contemplating just pulling the whole fan system out.

They probably don't do a whole lot where you have them positioned. Fans generally need a source of cool air to make any difference, so a better place to put them might be on your keyholes (they appear to be drilled out).
That's what I'm talking about. It's a power generator, in the middle of a tree. Strange

i'll be wiring my fans up the same as your cerjo...it will vent out the warm air through the key hold and draw cool air in from the underneath!!! good job guys...my inside doesnt have any electric at the moment..i ripped the mp3 system out to use the comm links at CM12...i doubt i'll put it back in now...to much trouble!

Problem is putting them there would EAT my hair.  I will tell you that the place they NEED to be is right on the top with a hole on the top of the helmet.  It's not really about the air coming in...but more or less evacuating the 100 degree air building up in the dome.

2 fans, voice amp, RF servo + RC controller board.  The Mand'alor helmet will probably have more in it.

I likes the high tech thingies =D  It makes it feel more realistic...and makes everything easier to keep up.

So do I, love when effort is made on things that no one will ever see. Also, if it's realistic to wear it'll without a doubt become easier to endure for a longer time than if it feels unreal to yourself.

Problem is putting them there would EAT my hair.

That's why I started wearing a du-rag (durag?) underneath my helmet, I was thinking of wearing a balaclava but it seems like that would just make me even more hot.
