    Default picked up some RBL clones from Home Depot, need to convert to pixel..

    Picked up a few "Holiday Accent" brand RBL knock offs, anyone know if the puck conversion for 9 bullet pixels will fit?

    any reason for 9 pixels in each?

    i got 30 of them at 3.5 canadien tax in lol
    not sure if i want to put the puck in as they are like $3+ each as i have like 100 of those module doing nothing so i will be putting 3 or 4 per rbl ,, witch will be like 12 pixel it should be Bright enough but i think the puck would be easier to program

    Just curious why 3.6v led dual leds power the RBL yet the 3d printed pixel puck uses NINE 12v rgb nodes..

    If you're familiar with Smith's Falls, you can see my display from the intersection of 43 (Perth road) and Roger Steven's Drive (North Gower road)

    I'm right behind the Hockey rink on Lansdowne Street

    I'm thinking of placing an order with Ray in early Jan.


    I'm printing a puck now and will test with those old non waterproof 5vdc bullets from a few years back.


    You're welcome to stop in my friend
    Cheers!
