Assembled New PSI Circuits

The flasher kits I ordered from allelectronics.com arrived today.

As cool as the fading PSI circuits are, I think I'd like to try having constant, full illumination for each color, so I'm trying these out.



I substituted my own red/blue and green/yellow superbright LEDs for the red ones that come with the kit. So far so good, but I need to play around with the diffusion in the dome a bit before I can declare success.

Which lites did you have before?
I bought the ones from Hyperdyne
( I think it was them )
But mine are not adjustable.

I have been using Dan Stuettgen's PSI board. It is definitely a nice setup, controlling both PSIs from one board. But the lights are at full intensity for only a moment, and then they fade as they alternate colors. That means that the display is usually dim (or off).

i have the FOP boards and they'll do for now, but i'll probably want to swap them out down the road. i'm very interested in seeing how these work out.

do you know if there's a video online of these running? or can your camera take a short video?

Chirs,

I just e-mailed you a short clip of the flasher kits in action. (Quality of the video is so-so.)
