    Building the LED Panel for the LEDTRIKS was one of those ' does your mind in' jobs! Sitting down with a piece of pegboard, 768 LEDs, copper wire, and a day off was not what a lot of people call fun. i don Work like writing document about this as guide on dissertation revision.

    With P10 panels so cheap now, it doesn't make sense to build triks.

    Agreed.

    I can only think of one reason, and that is if you are trying for an "older look" in the display.

    Not to build, but to use if you have one. Using xLights, I have more options than ever. I really didn't want to spend another 35.00 for a Pi. 40.00 for the BBB, whatever for the Octoscroller (I guess not needed now), and 10.50 each for the P10's plus getting to buy the lexan and make a box. Especially with the failure rate I have seen others complain about in the panels.

    The "older look" is red, but it does the job just fine.
    That's a feature not a bug.
    There's no charge for that.
