Change blade color

Hero sabers feature 9 blade colors that can be changed on the fly. To cycle through the colors, press button 2 then button 1 in quick succession. If done correctly an audio cue will play. Tilt your saber vertically (Y-axis) from 0 to 180 degrees to cycle through the colors. Press the button again to lock in the color.

For older hero models, simply twist the saber as if to turn a doorknob to cycle through blade colors.



Simply plug the charger into the saber charge port by removing the kill key located below the activation switches. Do not try to remove the battery via the pommel as it is secured internally to the soundboard and chassis.

Saber Editor

To edit the soundfonts, volume, blade effects, and other options, Hero sabers feature an editor that allows you to further customize your saber.

Saber is charged but not turning on/boot audio isn’t playing

Make sure the micro SD card beneath the speaker is seated correctly. The SD card should click down and feel secured when it is in correctly.

Saber is shutting down on clash or blaster deflect

These issues are generally a response to the battery being low but having enough power to still power on. Simply recharge the saber, and this should resolve these issues.
