    Hi All!!


    Just throwing it out there, but last year darylc did an AMAZING F16v2 bulk buy from David Pitts, and it changed my Christmas lighting LIFE!


    Has there been any talk about the F16v3? I am keen this year for another board and an expansion board as well... Trying to gauge how many peeps out there would be keen as well???

    Hi All,

    I've been talking to David Pitts and I am intending to run another bulk buy for Australia.

    I don't have any further details at this stage.

    After borrowing a V2 for my mega-tree, I was very impressed.


    I'm keen also.

    My question is how many should I sign myself up for :D

    After being drawn into the fray in 2013 but not doing anything definite until this year I can say I'm glad I waited - this hobby is changing in leaps and bounds every season, I wonder what v4 will have in store for us next year

    I think you should first work out your display and decide how many lights, and the required setup. Then you can decide how many controllers you need.


    I have :


    P12 - 12 Universe with 2 DMX
    P2 - 8 Universe (Megga Tree)
    F16v2 - 64 Universe (Main Display).


    I plan to buy 2 more F16v3 (1 as a spare)


    I have F16v2 with a expansion board. But don't get confused, the expansion board does not provide any extra Universes. Only makes the capability of 32 outputs. eg:

    Master Board :

    Master = 16 outputs x 4 universe per output

    TOTAL of 64 Universe

    Or

    Master Board with Expansdion :

    Master = 16 outputs x 2 universe per output
    Expansion = 16 outputs x 2 universe per output

    TOTAL of 64 Universe

    Just a suggestion that this thread be deleted so people don't get confused as an official Bulk buy thread for the F16V3. Just until darylc has official info and is taking interest for it!
