Hi Ben, if everyone else is getting 50cm then I guess I'll have no choice as I assume you cannot do both sizes in the same order/run? What would be the price difference to what I have already paid?benbrown said:Hi.
Okay. I will check that asap and get it sorted. Thanks for bringing it to my knowledge. Do you care if I do 50cm for you?
If these are based on the original strobe type then these can be triggered a different way.Charles Belcher said:I bought several of these strobes last year and never used them after reading and seeing a YouTube of the strobes taking 15 seconds to randomize.
Has a work-a-round or modification be done since last year?
Ok I think I know which version you are now talking about, this is the version that Alan organised through Ray Wu and they came with a light grey wire. I received them and never got around to using them, but if these do not have a trigger wire then this would explain the issue as the earlier DIY versions had the trigger to get around this issue.Charles Belcher said:Fasteddy,
The strings I have have a grey wire @+5v and a white wire @ -5v. The original list of purchasers showed your name on the list, so I believe you bought some of the same strings that I did.

Only thing I can think of is to cut up to smaller strings and then sequence each string slightly apart. Still not quite the desired effect however.
My set is also sitting doing nothing, but I might drag it out for Halloween as a string of lightning strikes.

There was also several versions of firmware with different timings that were used in the DIY version and also a trigger circuit. But even with the different firmware they still all started close together and only looked random after the first few flashes, the only way to have complete random was to use the trigger and have the chip powered up.djgra79 said:My understanding was that the PCB in each strobe was programmed incorrectly so that they all start the same time, not randomly, unfortunately.
