fire sticks/ leaping poles/ light poles etc... opinions


Recommended Posts

I am adding to my display this year jumping to 128ch but only using like 118 anways I had 4 poles last year that wer 9' and 7ch this year I was thinking about a few different options

-2 poles 20' tall 14ch on sister channels wired togetger but on opposite sides of the yard with stars on top

-4 poles 11' tall 9ch each all on sister channels wired together

- 2 poles 9' tall inside the 10' spiral trees

Idk I might take them out of the display all together??? I cant make up my mind

This year, I'm trying two poles, 8 foot, 7 sections each and a star, therefore 8 channels each...but, I'm also adding a single string of smart pixels to each. This way, I hope, I'll get two fixtures out of each instead of one.

I like mine at 5 vertical channels per 8' stick and 3 star channels on top.  That way I can do 2 sticks and stars with one controller.

I just built mine out of 2x4 and made bases using 2x10 and 3/4" plywood. I have some heavy flower pots so I just ratchet strapped the bases to them. One set consists of 8 red and 8 green channels, the other is one solid channel of red, one of white and I mounted 4 10w floods on each. I love the way the poles with the floods turned out and am defiantely making more for next year!

I have four pixel arches. 42 pixels each. I had two fire sticks that only had 3 channels each and they looked really cool for the first few years. plaining to replace them with RBG this year. Just need to decide between 8 dumb sections or pixels.

I'm new to LOR is there someplace that tells how to build Fire Sticks or Leaping Poles? Thanks!

Welcome aboard.

If the following doesn't help you, start a new thread and be a little more specific with questions. IE. LED or RGB or ???
