    Default Mighty Mini Contoller Box Version 3

    In the original Mighty Mini thread, I posted a pic of my mounting the power supply and
    controller card in a YBBS 1500-A box. While building the second one, I changed a few things and posted a pic of the revised version 2 box, and rebuilt the ver 1 to ver 2 standards.

    I used those two in the Memorial Day and Independence Day displays, and decided I didn't really like them. Started the quest for a version 3 !

    Used one case from Skycraft Surplus, added a handle, 10 RJ45-ECS weatherproof connectors, two 24 volt power supplies and two LOR DC cards.

    Everything is in one easy to handle box and controls 8 of the Mighy Minis

    Building a similar design one now for 10 of the Rainbow Floods

    Nice. I'll be sure to steal them when I get the CCRs. Paint them orange, my eyesight isn't getting any better, and I need all the help finding them I can get.

    John, where did the power supplies and the RJ 45 connectors come from?

    I use to go to Sky Craft Surplus a lot when I lived in the Orlando area. It is a real neat store to walk through you just never know what neat stuff you will find. If you are ever in the Orlando area you need to check it out. It is just North of Orlando in Winter Park Florida.
