    sounds good David, the CG enclosures and pixel tester might be of interest to me anyway. :)

    I shipped a bunch of stuff up to David_AVD to take along to the mini. There's some giveaways and some other stuff for people to have a look at and/or buy at a discounted mini price.

    I just had a doh moment. I sent up some pixel mounting strip but left out the mounting clips that I ship with them. If anyone grabs the roll that I shot up there then let me know and I will shoot them the mounts.

    I don't know if it's going to brought up in this mini, but I'm interested in seeing how different people have done their enclosures, particulary if some could bring theirs along to the mini. :)

    We can all learn from each other... sometimes even newbies have better ideas than the stalwarts.... not always, but I'm happy to learn from others.

    I will have my main box that holds power supplies, 2 x DC controllers, Pixlite 16 long range, 2 xPixlite 4, Raspberry Pi 3 and two 4 port giga bit switches. My entire show runs from this box.

    I will also have a small box that has one power supply and a Pixlite 4 controller. Never actually used it.

    Both of these were my first attempt and haven’t used anything else since, 5 years old and going strong.

    Does anyone want some 25mm conduit offcuts for prop making? I have 10 or so 1 metre pieces I can bring along to the QLD mini.
