If your a Paren of a kid that owns a Duel Disk, then this project should get them to start playing with it again :D
Well atleast for a little while...
Tools you will need:
**Strap - like from an ol Book Bag or something. Completely option by the way.
**Wire - Coated is suggested as you dont want to cross electircal lines.
**Battery holderOld USB cables - this is based on your particular preferance.
**Duel Disk - VITAL! if you dont have one, and want to do this project, GO GET ONE!
**SuperGlue - optiona for binding the wiring down to the plastic
Below are some pics (sorry about the low quality) of my finnished first version of the Duel Disk. You can see that I devided it into 2 seperate parts. the blade being suspended by a shoulder strap.
Step 1: Open Wide!!
There are several screws along the bottom of the toy, and one in the battry housing.
When you open the battery casing, you will see 3 button cell batteries. Take those out and there is one more screw that holds the unit together. Once you pop that last screw out, your next mision is to neatly desolder the wires to the battery leads.\
The following is optional:
Next you will see a few screws holding a plastic plate on. Remove the screws on that plate and remove it. Once thats done, follow the LED lines untill you get to the board that they are attached to, and cut the wires. Once done, take a brand new LED and wire it into the old battery leads, let them hang out as you replace the cover.
Step 2: Energize Me Cap'n!
Now we're ready or step 3!
Step 3: Adding the LEDs
Once your LEDs are secure, you may now begin soldering the negitive and positive leads to the respective wires.
You can add a switch to it if you want as well so your LEDS wont wear down your batteries and your kids wont be going aound the house stealingthe remote batteries.
Note: IF you have the "Oricalchos" version of the Dueldisk, you will have rendered the funtion of the sliding panels usless.
