    Default RGB arches and star build, first displays made.

    Thought I would share my first RGB build. Arches are 8.5' and star stands 7.5' (legs put it 2' above ground level). Pixels are 16led/m strips, 4 in all. Running a Arduino Mega for testing, switching to a Rasp Pi for sequence. Will be learning/using Xlights. Arches 1" pex.

    Overall very happy with display. If had to do over would have kept my arches at 10' (cut short to match 1/2 of 5M strip. Never though of extending the strips...dumb). Planning on fabrication a few snowflakes and a few meteor lights (have 4 strips left). Goal is to have lit. any 12/1.

    Know I am calling it close for this season but hopeful will have done in time. Thanks for looking.

    Yep, that star looks pretty cool, please give us some construction details.

    Can we see some daylight shots? How they were built?
