    Here is my first attempt at arches. :D

    Here is some details. I built 3 arches. Roughly 2.8m long lighted length. All Red LEDs from Big W. Total of 400 LEDs in each Arch.
    Eventually these will be split into 10 channels of 40 LEDs for next year. This year I am just running the 8 function controller. Seems like they do have a memory on them.
    Picture was taken from an Iphone so its not great but you get the idea. Also LEDs arent at full brightness at that stage. Excuse the junk everywhere. And that controller hanging down wont be there either

    Cheers
    Mike

    My mega tree, and well thats probably it. In the last 2 weeks I have tripled my light count to what I had to nearly 10000 :eek: Glad I found this place
    Mega tree will have around 1200 lights on it, Green and warm white. I am kind of limited to what I can do beacuse I am only running the 8 function controller. But this will change for next year
