WTB: F16v3 and Expansion Board
« on: April 07, 2018, 11:15:32 PM »
I have a friend who wants to get into the hobby and his funds are sort of limited at the moment,so paying full price for the F16v3 and Expansion board is out of the question. Thought I would check to see if anyone had one that they wasn't going to use for a good price. Before somebody chimes in and says check the store....read the post first.

I have basically the other things he's going to need....pixels,enclosure,power supply,etc that I'm going to give him and I wanted to start early in teaching him how to set things up without trying to overwhelm him with too much info if I waited until the last minute. PM me if you do.Thanks

Don't forget there are F16V2's out there and I've seen a few posts of used V2's for sale.   However, the V2 is very powerful in its own right so they aren't much less in price.  I have a bunch of V2's and didn't update them to V3 since they are still very capable and I still plan to use them for many years.  But I have seen V2's for sale recently.

Since you mentioned the F16 AND expansion, I'm guessing your friend needs 16-32 string ports and some PiCaps wouldn't be enough?  I would see if you can still get in on Dan's (dkulp) group buy for the F8-PB.  http://falconchristmas.com/forum/index.php/topic,8864.msg82711.html#msg82711

OR see if Dan still has any F32B's from last year's group buy.

xLights and Vixen3 for sequencing / FPP for scheduling and playing / Falcon controllers for pixels / DIY controllers for everything else

Thanks for the info. I'm going to get an idea as to what he wants to do later and see if an expansion board is really necessary.

These boards retain much of their value. So even if one were for sale I doubt it would be a whole lot less than the new price.

That's why I put "Thought I would check" in the post. You'll be surprised what people sell cheap to buy other things.

Sounds like your deadest on a Falcon.  I have a Pixlite16 MKII collecting dust.  $100 plus shipping if interested. (USPS small flat rate)  6 universes per output just like the Falcon, just no expansion capabilities that I'm aware of.

I'm not sure if he ever found one or not. I know he was still looking for one a few weeks ago. Let me know what you want for both and I'll let him know. You can PM me.
