  1. I ordered the HC 16 strip pixel tree. My issue is that it will be 17' tall, and I have no ladder to get me to the top. Has anyone tried using this with strips? http://www.holidaycoro.com/Pixel-Strip-MegaTree-Topper-p/750.htm I was thinking about attaching the strips to pixel node strips http://www.holidaycoro.com/PixNode-Pixel-Mounting-Strips-p/767.htm . Thinking I could mount the topper, and strips, and then erect it without worrying about getting to the top after. However, I am worried about what the spacing my look like at the top? Any ideas? Am I over thinking this?
  2. Wait.....you used 1 to power them all, or you used one for each controller? If the former, how many controllers would that be?
  3. Actully, the power supplies listed are intended to power chargers, and not as chargers themselves. Not really sure where the filtering would happen....in the charger, or in the power supply to the charger? I'll have to look into that. Multiple cell lipos (1 to 8 cells and varying mah). They are actually designed for powering chargers that handle larger batteries. I chat with the vender on another forum ( RC planes/helis). Will see if I can get all the specs. I'm kinda leaning toward the "not right for our needs" side at the moment.
  4. I'm thinking I could run 3 of the HC 12v 9ch dumb boards with this supply? Almost Three 4ch smart boards? Two 16ch pixel boards is probably pushing it? 900 watts, 75 amps, and sleek.... Thoughts? https://www.rlpower.net/products/75-amp-power-supply They have an 85 amp, 1025 watt version, too. https://www.rlpower.net/collections/power-supplies/products/85-amp-power-supply-with-a-usb-port
  5. Along with the 4 monitors, I also run to a 48" TV. I like to see the work in a larger scale at the end of a day.
  6. I personally can't stand to work on a computer with less than 2 monitors, anymore.
  7. Was wanting to do this for awhile. Had no idea what was involved. Did a little (very little) reading, found this forum, and dropped $1600 on a starter kit from Wowlights. My wife threw a fit when she saw the bill. Said "I could see as much as $500, but $1600!!!". She didn't know about the other $500 or so I dropped on cases of lights, sequences, cords and wire, etc. My first display was Halloween, and it was weak. This will be my 4th year, and it's still weak, but it is getting better. I am starting to understand that the flashy winky blinky thing isn't all that attractive, and loses peoples attention quick. Would say I spent the first 3 years learning how to do it, and the last year learning my mistakes. Gonna take a fair guess, and say I'm still 2, or 3 years from actually having that "wow" show. Adding a pixel tree, and backing off everything flashing all the time, is a big step in the right direction. So good to have people on this site to guide, and help. Can't imagine doing it without all you people.
  8. Where is this at? I'm in South Jersey, but these things always seem to be up north.
  9. Thank you very much, Brian.
  10. Looking for Spiraling "Do You Hear What I Hear". I had a friend pass recently, and he was a HUGE Who/Moon fan. Thinking about adding it as a tribute. Dcroc@verizon.net
  11. I would be interested in buying just the bursting star if you decide to split that up.
  12. Sorry, they are sold.
  13. Really? Nobody wants these? I will reduce price to $40 plus shipping for both, but would still rather trade for singing Christmas faces, Dancing skeleton, or coro tombstones.
  14. ....or, will sell. $50 plus shipping for the pair. Would really rather trade for something, so don't be afraid to reach out with whatever you have to offer (nodes, strips, coro elements, whatever). However, I will sell them if someone want's to buy them.
  15. Would consider other trades.
