    I've decided to go with (1) 36M with onboard quickplugs, and (2) 18M's with onboard quickplugs. Moving forward I'll be doing mostly 3 positions shows with most of the action coming from the center...

    I haven't shot the Legend Cake above, but I have shot Willow Explosion. Willow Explosion is good for finales because of the 24 shots quickly in 21 seconds, and it looks fantastic, but it breaks lower...

    Nice. That Cat5 cable is super convenient, light, and cheap. It's too bad you couldn't use CAT5/RJ45 with 18S/18cues. I'd imagine Cobra would then need some logic on the slats and Modules though...

    Btw, I went and looked at the winners youtube channel. They actually DID have a long show for 2019 but the video they submitted for the contest was only the finale part. So I'll cut them some slack,...

    My 2 cents Ed

    I saw the 1st and 2nd place picture winners. You've got to be kidding me right? The wedding pic was probably taken by a professional photographer, and of course these 2 chicks who...

    OK so I've done the financial analysis of going with (1) 36M with onboard quickplugs, (2) 18M's with onboard quickplugs, armored cases for each, and with everything else I want to buy it's only $100...

    Thanks for your input. I keep hearing over and over again not to go the route I want to go and I'm not really seeing the big benefit of going with 1 36M and 2 18M's, but since everyone is so adamant...

    I'm starting to understand more about the flexibility with the 18M's. specifically in that you have more freedom to spread out your show, and don't have all these cable runs. That said I think for...

    If I go with the 72M and slats, I'm going with the 72M with 18S slats which are DB25, vs. 36S slats which uses the Centronic 50 pin. Btw, thanks for posting that video. Those 25M Centronics cables...

    Btw, if going slats should I go mini slats, or full sized slats? Advantages/disadvantages? I see that the mini slat is smaller and cheaper, but is it a PITA trying to wire it? Last, I have to say...

    Hmm this is a difficult choice. Part of the reason I decided to go with the 72M is because with less modules you're dealing with less module problems. 1 module to sync, 1 module to test etc... Also,...
  13. Interesting way to save a good amount of money...

    Interesting way to save a good amount of money and I'd almost be inclined to go this way but with your 72M case you cannot close the cover during the shoot right? Could explain why your unit looks so...

  15. Help me pick the right equipment for my Cobra starter kit

    Hey all,

    I'm hoping you Cobra pros can take a look at couple of pics and based on my show layout and my equipment list, let me know if I have everything I need or not. Looking to do scripted...

    I see this with a lot of vendors in general. An 8 year old video might be ok for some once a year pyro who is hand lighting, but for those of us that rely on timing and accuracy of effects to build...

    Let me see if I understand this correctly. You are suggesting (6) 36S because I would want to have (2) 36S per station? And there is no problem chaining all those 36S together? I think in the case of...

    I think I see, and looking at a picture of a 72M for example, it has 4 banks of 1-18 connectors labelled A,B,C,D. And I assume you can assign each "bank" to any "channel"?

    I'm sure if I searched this site I could find 100 threads on the Cobra and figure it out myself but I'm going to throw this out there anyway. I'm thinking that a good start for me would be to go with...

    $3 is a good deal. I paid about $4 a piece, but it was because this was a last minute show and I had to go local wholesale which is not nearly as good as what I can get elsewhere. And yeah, now on my...

    I see now...I was wondering why you only did 2 Bump Bear stations in the 2019 show but I wasn't going to say anything. LOL 3 stations(LCR), 30 Bump Bears per station/2 or 15 per station firing at...

    Looking at your 2019 video, is this at about 21:34? This is 90 Bump Bear? Basically what I see is 2 Bump Bear stations simultaneous/side by side, happening twice in a row. So this must be 45 Bump...

    The thing that really sux is hiding a canister shell inside of the ball shell. A lot of people by ball shells because their breaks are general more symmetrical/round.
