Thanks Miker

Ok, picked up a spring and some screws, they look purdy:

I'm now on the hunt for a decently priced simple walkie talkie set that has a decent range. I discovered that the toy walkies have about a 5 foot range and are terrible, so they won't be used for this.

I was also curious if anyone remembers whether the LED turns on when the button is pressed, or is it on when listening? This will factor in for the wiring/soldering.


Oh, and I finally tried wrapping my food stuffs bar in copper foil, here it is painted, and then wrapped in thin copper foil.

Thanks, unfortunately the camera makes the foil seem more gold than the copper colour it actually is, but it works well for me.

While hunting for some decently priced walkies to make this work, a thought occurred to me.

What if the PAL would play conversation audio files with a button activation? Kool? or no?

Hey everyone, I know I've been quiet for a while. So I still haven't picked up a decent walkie for a price I'm comfortable with, and I don't know when I'll find one I'm looking for on my budget.

In the meantime, I did up the electronics for 1 PAL, just with a push button switch I had lying around and a small resistor and a 5 mm LED.
I soldered the circuit, and shrinkwrapped it. and made a plexiglass piece to hold the switch. Then hot glued the plexi in place, this is how it turned out.

I'm just waiting to find a mini battery that I can use.

Here's the look of the PAL all "finished"

Now here's the giving part, I've posted my finished file on Thingiverse, enjoy:

Note: The Jayne's Pistol is basically done, I just need the grips detailed.

I don't think it's any better then the crappy ones I tried the first time, take a look at the reviews, it looks to be very poor quality.

Thanks for the suggestion though :)
