    Default GECE Spinner/Pinwheel

    Here's a video of my spinner again. This time it's controlled by LOR and an E681 and not the factory controller. The lights don't start until 0:45. It looks kinda blank in certain parts of the song because I actually have two of these and sometimes they are lighting up at different times. It's a little choppy on the forum, it might be smoother if you view it straight from youtube.

    That is a spectacular job. Who is the music artist? I haven't heard that song before.

    Wow!

    That looks amazing. I really like when you made the cross, and also the part at the end with the pulsing outward lights. Going to have to steal some of these effects for my Megastar.

    What song was used?

    Thanks! The song is Christmas This Year by Toby Mac.

    Sam I'm glad you noticed the cross. I wondered if anybody would catch it.

    I like it. That thang would be good for dear huntin Shannon. You just stick that thang out on a tree and wait til dark.Then play the hippytizm star video below and when it is goin round and round you say something like Yall are in my power then when the dear sees it and it all hippytized you sneak up behind it and wack it on the head. No shootin or spotlite needed. That thang is the best invention for huntin cents the bumper dumper.
    Here is the video you need to play

    Whizzing in Winter. My favorite song.

    I'm done building. I was just working on mounting my power supplies in the enclosures and figured I would go ahead and wire up one of the spinners and see what the sequencing looked like.

    Spectacular job .. I love the pinwheels .. I have some pinwheel ideas that I started last year, but had too much on my plate .. now for 2014...

    Is there a reason why you went with 9 pixels per leg instead of 8 ?
    Thanks,

    Thanks Denny! The only reason for 9 is because I used the 36ct. string. I guess I could have used 8 and cut off 4. I was just thinking about using all the bulbs. It's two 36ct. strings.
