  1. Alphapix vs Falcon?

    I have run a few different controllers including the alphapix. And the Falcon is the best controller you can get for the money today. In fact I was so impressed with them I bought four controllers last year to replace everything that I had and I have one of the new f48 on order. 3 of My f-16v3 are set up with 4 400w power supplies so I have a hundred watts per output.
  2. Forsale singing trees

    I think I'm going to be selling my for singing faces from holiday Coro because I'm switching to a p 10 panel. I have four of the smaller trees that I gave unique faces to. All of them are Run by One Renard 32 Plus controller. I'm in the Madison Wisconsin area. Here they are in action. By the way many of those faces you find on xlights I think are mine so far I've submitted about 30 that I've made up. I'm having way too much fun making up faces to go on to the P 10 panel.
  3. Powering a pixel mega tree

    I've been able to get 20 to 30 feet from the controller without a problem.( needs good wire) It's gotten pretty cold here and I haven't had any problems with the performance of the controllers in the cold weather. If you need more distance there is the f48 coming out like mentioned above. There's also a product coming out from Falcon I think it's going to be called a Famp, Falcons version of a u amp.
  4. Powering a pixel mega tree

    The Falcon controller is far from complicated and has the most features and expandability for the price on the market today.
  5. Powering a pixel mega tree

    Yes it has WiFi that is for the future firmware update where it can work as a standalone player or be run as a slave with a Raspberry Pi as the master or Xschedule. The V3 has an SD card slot as well as the USB port to output sound.
  6. Powering a pixel mega tree

    I have the web running at 50%. I intended on doing that right from the beginning otherwise with the pixel density it may overpower the spiders that I'm putting next to it.
  7. Powering a pixel mega tree

    Falcon controller with four 400 watt power supplies. I'm not sure about the visualizer but in xlights it will automatically download the model and all submodels right from the manufacturer.

  10. Powering a pixel mega tree

    I power 170 pixels at 100% on many different props without any power injection. In fact I just built the Boscoyo spider web with 324 pixels and no power injection all off of one port. If you use the right wire and no how to wire it properly it's not an issue.
  11. RGB Floods -- what do you do with them?

    Yeah, no rules just limits of human endurance.
  12. RGB Floods -- what do you do with them?

    Other than no one can sequence the Barney song or beep beep bunny. Absolutely no one deserves to be subjected to that sort of torture. IS JUST NOT RIGHT MAN!
  13. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    I know you're doing this to learn stuff but have you ever considered using the pi to do a virtual Matrix with a projector on that wall? To me it makes more sense on many levels.
  14. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    That particular discussion was me. I made the mistake of buying a couple of the Amazon basic USB to ethernet adapters that didn't seem to be compatible. I ended up buying a Best Buy house brand insignia 3.0 to gigabit Ethernet adapter. I also picked up a trendnet USB 3.0 to gigabit Ethernet adapter that works
  15. Connecting P10 LED panels to LOR?

    Computer> gigabit Ethernet switch for show> Pi's built-in ethernet> USB 3.0 to gigabit Ethernet adapter> colorlight card connected to LED panels. And to answer your second question slow boat from China seems to be the only option.
