This thread is for purchasing a selection of Falcon Pixel Controllers and accessories.

As in previous years I am working directly with David Pitts at Falcon Christmas ( to import some of his boards directly from his manufacturer and distribute them locally.

Please carefully read first few posts before asking questions or placing an order.

These buys have become very large and the time required to run them is enormous, these rules may seem harsh but it is the only way I can continue to run them.

1. All questions/orders/concerns should be posted in this thread so that my replies can be seen by all.
2. Do not email me or pm me with questions, you will be pointed back here.
3. I do not know what parts you will need for your show, I cannot assist in designing your show.
4. I am simply offering an opportunity to purchase Falcon controllers if you have worked out what you want to buy.
5. Board specifications are subject to change without notice
6. Only people located in Australia or New Zealand are eligible to take part in this buy.
7. Total quantities under this buy may be restricted if required.
8. All orders must be placed in this thread.
9. Payment is via Paypal in US$ only.
10. This buy will close by 22nd March 2020. Orders not paid for by this date will be cancelled.
11. Delivery of boards is estimated to be mid May to mid June 2020.
12. There will be no refunds after you have paid for your order.
13. This year there is some risk around the Coronavirus and the current Chinese factory shut downs etc. If this makes it impractical for the boards to be delivered then I would look at cancelling the bulk buy and issuing refunds. Please note that due to the way Paypal works with refunds, if the AU-US exchange rate changes between the time you pay and the time any refund is issued, you may end up with more or less $AU than you paid, despite me refunding the full amount.
14. If you are unwilling to accept the various buy conditions then do not place an order. Posting an order in this thread is considered your acceptance for these terms.

If you have concerns about participating or sending money to me for such a buy, I would recommend talking to others who have participated in previous buys about their experiences.
