Title: The dreaded distance question for Falcon 8
Post by: onesmoothhead on December 09, 2016, 01:51:41 PM
Hello all, I am thinking about using a spare falcon 8, but I forgot the estimated maximum distance between the Falcon and the first node before I should really place a Null Node.  Any chance someone did this and I can learn from them? Thank in advance Kevin

The F8 and the F16v1 have the same output circuit I believe.  I have run 35 feet to the first pixel from my F16v1 using Ray Wu 3-core extension cables.  I bought a couple Afterburners originally and haven't even had to use them since i can get so far with the stock F16v1.

Similar here.  Easily 2-3x longer than SSC or Zeus.
