Hello!

This year, for Halloween & Christmas, out theme was Alice in Wonderland. We had a live Halloween show and the then incorporated the setting into our Christmas display. The centerpiece was a 5800 pixel matrix in the shape of a Queen Chess Piece with 1" spacing. It was made out of Coro and aluminum C-channel (which I will not be using again).

This thing is way heavier than I planned and it took some madness to get it up there. (I was ready to give up, but my awesome wife tied the rope to the hummer and slowly pulled it up in the air!)

Eventually I realized that the C-channel wasn't as supportive as I thought. SO I mounted the matrix onto a PVC ladder.

But of course, it isn't a dragon.....(which everyone loves to tell me)

Nice!
What controller(s) did you use for this. It looks like 1" spacing, at least in the picture.

Also (from seeing the facebook pictures) did you have any trouble parking any aircraft that landed? (Wow, that thing is bright.)
