I noticed that it runs on 24V.  Could someone that has one, post the nameplate data (volts, amps, polarity)?

I was thinking a dedicated 24V bank on a CMB24D could control this with more effects.

Is it possible to split the flags power feeds into sections (flag areas)?

do you control from separate CMB24 channels, or double up with another flood?

When I read the specs on the one posted here, it stated 29V, which I though was odd, usually L.E.D. are in the range of 5VDC, 12VDC or 24VDC.  First time I've ever seen an odd voltage like that one.   And it's plugged into AC, so I don't know if it's 29VDC or 29VAC per their specification, that should be a bit clearer. IMO

stated 29VDC twice, one should've been 29VAC

I read ALL the reviews on anything I'm considering purchasing.   It's the one reason I prefer to be able to go into a store, SEE, FEEL and KNOW everything works before I buy something like that.   But today that's getting harder and harder to do, not something I like or prefer, unfortunately it's the way things are going and that to me is not all that good or great.  But that's just me. 

Even with my Garden Railroad it's getting to the point I have to start looking on-line for things, instead of being able to go to the local Hobby Shop, see the loco run, hear the sounds and make sure all features work before I buy it and bring it home.  But now, the local Hobby Shops are starting not to carry things like they used to because they can't even compete with the internet pricing.  me, I'd rather pay a wee bit more money for something I can touch, see and hear to make sure it's definitely what I'm expecting, instead of online and then having to find some way to return it, if it can even be returned.

Give me a local store I can shop in any day over internet, despite the higher cost in store, I'd rather go there and maybe even meet a new friend, as opposed to staying  in and buying online, never really going out and meeting folks like we used to.  No wonder our society is going down the drain the way it is.  Again just my observation of how things are today as opposed to before this internet shopping insanity started.  

Sorry got a bit astray I think, but it seems relevant to me on how we shop today and where things are going.

problem with local stores is they almost never have the inventory, I have wide feet and all the local places have maybe two or three styles for my chubby feet while everyone else has dozens of styles to choose from.  Internet/online allows me to get thousands of styles and a perfect fit each time.

The last 2 times I bought clothes over the internet, they were far too big and they stated they were my size on the tags, but they sure were about two sizes larger than the tag stated.  Same item I go in store and find, try on, perfect fit.   So that's part of the reason for certain things I'd rather not buy them online, clothing and shoes never work out for me buying online, I need the local retailer.

I have just the opposite experience, if I don't buy them from the Harley shop then they are toddler size.

This is the info they have posted 29V, doesn't match the cord voltage of 24V. Couldn't add text to message, so it's here in the edit box.

That says a CMB24 output would not even be strained .  all you need to do is identify the polarity of the 2 wires, and you get full control, just like any other DC LED string.

1/4 A is nothing.  Almost any 24VDC wall wort supply can feed a bank. https://www.amazon.com/LEDwholesalers-Adapter-5-5x2-5mm-UL-Listed-3206-24V/dp/B002LMQ6G2/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1530676159&sr=8-4&keywords=24vdc+power+supply  this would power 8 of these flags  on a CMB24 bank with ease

Just remember, that module should NOT be used with dimming circuits (LOR)
