Updated list of why I think this is amazing:

-Sightfx Kit
-FML Driver
->500mW!!!
-Clear Enclosure
-Extra Heatsink + Fan
-LiPo Battery

The only thing I could think of that would make thins better is if you managed to squeeze the 3 motor spiro in there. I would love to see a video with the 24th (rainbow trail) and 25th effects (Jewel fountain).

I'll leave that up to sightfx.

I have all ready broken 2 8x blu-ray diodes, a 100mW green, over 8 LPC red diodes and MANY other things when building this. Not to mention this is my second attempt at building this. I did it without the kit first and it was miserable and now all the parts have been trashed.

Instead I'm going to build a separate box with several easy effects to supplement this laser. Such as a tunnel, spiro and a mini lumina effect.

Can you (or anyone, really), post a picture of this laser package with something in it for some more scale?

Like a close up of the finished laser like your first picture, next to a deck of standard-size playing cards? I'm still having trouble getting a true sense of the sizes of these kits, and that would help me a ton.

That's the same size box that I found when I first showed the White Fusion build...

Here's the size:

Haha, I've had the second picture jayrob posted as my desktop for a while now.

I'm honored...

Ryan told me that I was the first one to do this build with his awesome White Fusion Kit. :D

I would still say it's my favorite...

Especially for how technical the build is and everything. But getting 7 colors and stuff is awesome. I have FML's driver for my next one down the road.

Right now I'm really liking my Star Trek Phaser mods...

I have a nice green one, and am currently working on a killer 12X one. The 12X will have a custom cone shaped EzFocus adapter at the tip. And a safety switch to activate the laser. I have a cool blue LED light set inside the sound knob, it is behind a fiber optic plug for a lens.

It's going to be sweet...

There's something about firing a laser on a trigger with sound... :cool:

See the green here:

Edit: Here's the 12X!

I have a couple of question MISTERWILLING:

What ma did you request from FireMyLaser for the O-Like module?
What are the dimesions of the LiPo battery?
Does the LiPo charger come with the DC Input Cable?
Approximately how long does the build last using your 15 min on/ 5 min off duty cycle?
What are the two small switches next to the large toggle switch?

Thanks!

the highest, but I had to increase it because I used a 100mw module which need high current

What are the dimesions of the LiPo battery
2.1" x 1.2" x .9"

Does the LiPo charger come with the DC Input Cable?
yes but you need the power from another source

Approximately how long does the build last using your 15 min on/ 5 min off duty cycle?
No one will know, I have about 3 hours on it so far

What are the two small switches next to the large toggle switch?
I got them with the FML kit for a buck or so

FiremyLaser gave me instructions on which resistors to change out to set a higher max current. This also increased to heat dissapation of the 317 driver so 4x 4001 diodes were put in series before the diode to take some heat off. Worked great for me and this green module should last a while since it is being under-driven.

I think you thought I was asking how long is the life of the build. I just meant how long does the LiPo battery last?

Yeah sorry I figured that out after reading the tutorial for the kit.
