    Default RBL Knock-Off?

    Has anybody purchased one of these and added pixels? These are 1" smaller than the RBL's, and battery powered.

    Following. I like the RBL's and have 10, my wife on the other hand is not a fan. This is my first year with RBL's so I am hoping to be able to turn her opinion when she sees them in action.
    2012 - 1st year 64 Channels - 7500 LED lights - 5 sequences
    2013 - 128 Channels - 10,000 LED lights - 7 sequences (2 New)
    2014 - 201 Channels - upgrading 8 Arches to dumb RGB - 8+ sequences (1+ New)
    2015 - 240 Channels + 8 Universes - sequences TBD
    2016 - No Display
    2017 - Back in the Game - 240 Renard Channels + 12 Universes
    2018 - 256 Renard and 9 Falcon Outputs of Pixels - 16 sequences shown over 2 nights

    I just found a 3D printable part to add 9 pixels to these.

    Here is an interesting read.
    That's a feature not a bug.
    There's no charge for that.

    Thank you for posting this , I just picked up 12 of them .
    Rather than nodes, I will install strip like a filament and test marbleized effects .

    Any chance you could post some videos when you get one going? I’m very interested in this!

    I will for sure . Have taken one apart and started the to put back together .
    The first thing I did was analyze how these were designed and what I discovered is that creative thought went into them .
    I am going to follow the original designers lead and install strip precisely as done .
    The design was to truly replicate the original bulbs ,right down to the filament .
    This is notable once hung in place and observing the appearance .

    I will use the original battery bays for strip and replace the tray cover with clear material .
    Will refit 2 of them in the next while 1- for hard wire connecting and 1- for complete wireless operation and android app control .
