Big balls VS Small balls aka reject shop balls
Didn’t like plain white 23” stars
Got these guys working today... all cables made... ready to mount to the roof
looking good Dan all coming together.
Just a little video i'll put up on my facebook page later this month to try and get more people to come and see the display
Well the Display coming along... just a couple of small items left to build.
The wife didn't like the boring white candy canes, so we made our own "daycor" version
A Cafe around the corner from my house who wants to put a poster in their window So I came with this..
Dave, I like your use of Pentatonix. I have found their music great for sequencing plus I just plain like it.
Today we started put up our display / finish building....
Plus we decided that we wanted to keep our display safe, so installed 6 4K cameras around my house.. 3 are being used to keep an eye on our display..
Started to attached the props on the front of the house
And tested all my roof pixels to go up over the next couple of days
Today I got “Pix” & “El” up...
They can also lay flat in the weather looks to be bad.. eg high winds
After spending a lot of time in the xlights zoom chat over the last couple of days I have found that a lot of problems people are having is to do with power... eg do I need to power inject or is it a bad pixel ... so I just built this
It’s a 5v to 24v panel meter with ray wu 3pin on one side and a 2pin on the other
This means you can plug into the out of a prop and see what’s the voltage is..
A lot easier then trying to use a multimeter
Also can use to check volt on your contorller too
Just an idea
Got all my house items up and running last night...
Only missing my sing blubs... they are on my roof, but folded down for now-- Bad weather on the way
It’s looking great David
Well my Display is up and running.. everything has been going great until yesterday.. FM transmitter died..
But a msg and a phone call later the great @LawrenceDriveLights is lending me his spare until I Have a new one.. 2 Nights with out music is better than 5 to 6..
This once again proves how much of a great community we have not only on ACL but also the xlights community across the world..
I have been help people all across the world in xlights zoom meetings and they keep asking what I can do to pay you back..
Its simple.. Help someone when you can.. This might be your 1st year but next year there will be a whole heap of new 1st years..
