    Default VDRIVE/VFLOOD Fully assembled PREORDER!

    I know it is getting somewhat late in the year... but it is what everyone has been waiting for! Just in time for those Halloween decorators!!!

    Now available for PREORDER at TWODOGLIGHTSTORE

    FULLY ASSEMBLED VDRIVE/VFLOOD!

    Yes you read that right! A ready to use, constant current LED FLOOD! I know everyone has been waiting for such an item for years now! All you need is a 12vdc PWM power supply*, and housings for the boards (sorry, these items are not included)!




    "PREORDERS" are now being accepted for up to 90 Combination Kits. These kits should be ready for mid-late September/early October shipping! For now I am only prepping a total 90 combination kits, with more "after the season" ( I still need time to work on my display too). Once these are ordered they will not be offered again until 2011.

    VCOMBA Combination Packages will contain VDRIVE and VFLOOD fully assemebled and tested. Just add your favorite housings and 12vdc PWM power supply* ( 2amp per VDRIVE/VFLOOD minimum) and your house will have a bright glow of colors in no time! Don't forget VDRIVE's strobe feature that YOU can sequence any color, any speed, any flash length into your shows! Now you can have that Orange or Purple or Slime Green strobe for Halloween! OR ALL three changing constantly!!! No other DIY LED FLOOD has this ability built in!

    VCOMBU will also be available as UNASSEMBLED kits with all the parts needed for both VDRIVE and VFLOOD for that die-hard DIYer!

    The BIG savings will be in shipping costs by not having to get parts from multiple vendors! One stop shopping!! One flat Shipping cost!

    *I am working on a power supply at an additional cost that will finish out the package.
    ( shipping will increase to a FLAT 11.95 for more than 2 combinations units, please email for details)

    For more info click on the link above!

    Me too !

    I am not adding in any DMX stuff until Christmas 2011. I will let Mark, Al and others wrestle with mixing the two. And then decide later how best for me to add in DMX. The price of LOR's iDMX really frosts me. But so far it looks to be the simplest way to integrate ! I guess I shouldn't hold my breath for the half price sale ..
    Thanks,

    Doggone. I just put together 16 Mighty Minis. I want to see the Vflood but would rather slide down a mile long razorblade into a vat of turpentine than add anything new (regardless) to the display for this year. I usually experiment and plan least 1 1/2 years ahead anyway. I am very interested though.

    Denny,
    The longer you wait, the easier it will be, but then there's TNBT - The Next Big Thing. It's beginning to look like RGB pixel strings are still coming down in price and with some of the stuff that will be shown at the convention/mini, next year will be the year of less discrete controllers, and more of fully programmable, independent, individual lights. Not for everywhere in your display, but for those special "WOW" type features in your display.

    My advice is to go the software route, and get away from a single vendor solution like the iDMX and using LOR S2. Software like LSP or Vixen will give you the ability to mix and match without too many converters. But you probably don't expect a different message from me by now...
    Mark

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    LSP is way more advanced than LOR. However, that learning curve comes with a cost. Personally, I have too many new things for this year, but next year I'll have more time to procrastinate not buying LSP because I am too busy to learn it. But S2 is like an old t-shirt. Now if S3 comes out soon, all bets are off and LSP will be part of the display next year regardless of the learning curve.

    S3 is going to cost us to upgrade. Well, that puts LSP and S3 on equal grounds monetarily. However, if you compare features, LSP will win hands down.

    While interested in seeing the V-Flood, I have 8 MMs, 10 Rainbow Floods, 1 Rainbow Spot, and even bought 1 Rainbow WallRunner just to play with. I think I'm well blessed with floods and stuff for awhile.

    Like Mark, I am looking forward to the RGB nodes in the near future. Pretty well have 2011 already planned and starting to get stuff in to experiment with, so it could be 2012. Although I am seriously looking at some 12mm RGB LEDs already mounted in waterproof housing running on 5 volts, if I get them by the end of Sept, they will be used in 2011. They cost about 18 cents each. I plan on ordering at least 100 if I pull the trigger on them

    Al, I bought LSP last spring, ver 1.5, then upgraded to ver 1.7. You are right the learning curve is very steep, and requires a whole different way of thinking.

    In mid-July, when I first saw that the LOR 2.8.x beta software had RGB support, I quit looking at LSP and concentrated on the LOR 2.8.x versions

    One thing that will be in LOR 3.0.x is a brand new visualizer.

    Hey Guys..

    Yes I am shipping the "demo" unit to the Christmas Carolina Convention for you to enjoy. The other William (Bottomly) will be the repsonisible party with it. Wish I could be there with it to meet all of you! But my "day job" schedule just didn't allow it!

    And I can understand holding off on stuff. Heck I bought up a bunch of lights and controllers that I may not even get to use this year due to time working on VDRIVE and VFLOOD. we'll see I usually still always get everything done somehow. My wife will kill me if I actually buy more stuff for the display right now..

    I have added a new SKU to www.twodoglightstore.com

    VDRIVA

    What is this you ask??

    How about a fully assembled VDRIVE!! Ready to go and tested. I also have them special priced for a short time, and taking preorders for late Sept/Early October delivery.

    But wait, you have one of those "other" LED Flood designs such as the Rainbow or Mighty Mini?? NO PROBLEM. I will gladly modify your VDRIVES to work with those units. ( I will need one of your flood boards shipped to me so I can test your VDRIVE with, since I do not own those products).

    I also added a special price the VCOMBA which is the assembled VDRIVE VFLOOD Package..Again this is a pre order for Late SEPT/Early OCT delivery.
    PREORDERS for these will be accepted up to SEPT 10. So Hurry to get a great deal on a flood package that is almost ready to use!

    Order VDRIVE or Combos, and need a power supply?

    I am working on getting power supplies for VDRIVE VFLOOD combos, BUT if you need something special and you are ordering VDRIVE or COMBOS, if you find a PS that will fit you needs from http://www.circuitspecialists.com/, I'll gladly go by their office, pick it up and ship it with your order for the cost to aquire! ( price they quote plus AZ sales tax. I will check and see if they will let you pay for it, maybe it will save you some of the sales tax, then let me pick it up ship it with your order from TDLS, thus saving you extra shipping!) Please Contact me first for more details on this before ordering!

    Please feel free to email me or PM more more info!
