Hello everyone. I've been looking at doing lights for years, and well, lets just say I've finally decided with my daughter growing up, I'm looking at doing a display for next year. Having said that, I want to try and get started right away. I've looked at some of the boards around, and noticed that the renard isn't that popular here in Australia, but it does look like a flexible option, and a bit easier to understand for the beginner. Reason I see it that was is because the other options look more at pixels, and that's probably a bit hard for me to grasp what is needed, and of course the initial outlay with some of the boards being rather expensive, as well as the lights. I've looked at our house, and was thinking of 3 or 4 arches, mini trees, as well as a number of lines, and icicles to make up my first display for 2013. I would like to do a pixel tree that I've seen, but that's a wee way off. Anyways, I look forward to any help and advice you give, or I read.
