    We took a look at these at the NJ mini last week and were pleasently surprised at the light output. As in all products, red is not as bright as green and blue, however, not a bad product.

    I haven't checked to see if it works but I used a $4 solder iron from Walmart to put it together.

    I saw that thread Dan.

    They must have good results.

    Wow, those look pretty good William. How long did it take you to assemble them?

    I am planning for my Mighty Minis to be mounted very close to the house (and other things" in the future). Based on the extremely low cost of the Rainbow flood, they might be a better way to go for my future needs. I am guessing that the MMs will still win outside at night when trying to fill the side of a house with flood color. White is nice but not really needed as much ..

    I am really curious to hear what you find William !
    Thanks,

    LOL!

    Next year, I'll move the Mason-Dixon line a little farther north and stay a little longer.

    William,

    You are going to have to stay longer since you promised us your "crack in a cup" for next year...I am sure after one glass someone like you will have to finish up the pitcher!

    As for the floods, I ordered 8 of them! Still think I can get more brightness out of the reds...

    Andy... I noticed the red's are a little dim and the blue's are a shade purple at great distances.

    All in all, these things are bright and easy to solder together. So far, I've completed five and have three more left.

    Looks good, William. Guess I had better get started on my 10, or ship you the parts and "sweet talk" you into assembling mine
