Yeah mate you would of but not last year pics of my boat is used a lot for advertising for the parade as well. I have been doing the parade for 6 or 7 years now so much fun in doing it and just love the reactions of the crowds. I will be back this year with a new look I think.

Have you been in Buderim long?
Hi drew happy to help just let me know when and we will figure out a time that works for us both
Hi dpitss, I was looking for some fuse box on the website and came across your name for Falcon F8-distro fuse board. Would you have any idea where can i buy few falcon f8? Looking forward to hear from you soon.
Please dont post things here ... I dont see them ... Its April 2020 and this is the first time I have seen any of these posts. Some of them are 3 years old.
Due To CoronaVirus and it being started in china i have not ordered anything since the spike and i will not be ordering from ray wu if there is a way from ordering stuff such as pixels from america only then please send me links i am afraid of ordering goods from china amid this cxorona virus if i cant order thing the display this year will be cancelled :(
Hi toma122727
Just checked with my son who is a doctor and he tells me that the virus can only survive outside of our body for 12 to 24 hrs.
Based on that info by the time the pixels arrive from China if there was any virus it would be dead.
If you want to be sure let them sit in the box for a week after arriving before opening.
Cool story bros
they are all made in china, so no getting around it. Corona won't survive shipping though, only lasts a day or so on surfaces.
Hello Keith -

I understand from Mark_M that you have code for Arduino that allow it to revcieve xLights data in real time? I would be very interested in knowing more about that. I am building a light rack that simulates a sunrise/sunset ovre a model railroad. Part of the requirement is to raise and lower three window shades using three stepper motors.
This is the main code Keith has posted. I would suggest becoming familiar with Arduino C+ variant and learn how xLights sends data for the Arduino to process.
Hi Miked, we enjoy seeing your displays every year. Just wondering what pixels you use? Are they 5v or 12v or a mixture of both?
Hi Albrador, sorry for not replying sooner. Have not been on the forum for a while. Glad you enjoy the lights. Get all my pixels from Ray. The mega tree and C9s are 5V with all the rest 12 V.
Thanks, Email sent as well.

welcome - read the 101 manual - great way to get confused - but filled with lots of stuff that makes sense after a while :)
Hi Keith
Hope you don’t mind me seeking your opinion on something. It isn’t a technical query as such, but more a recognition of the depth and breadth of your overall knowledge of the industry. I am Perth-based member of ACL and recently met with another Perth-ite Cranzy who recommended I touch base with you. Is there an email address I can use?(the character limit makes it difficult to use posts). Thanks Tony.
Is there anyone in Perth that runs tutorials or mentors newbies? Just started out and done a basic layout but have no idea what link it all together
