Simple questions.

Post by TestSubject421 » Sun Apr 04, 2010 6:24 am

Has the torque of the motor been an issue when you were prototyping?
I have been wondering if anyone else had that issue.

Did you do any counter balancing to prevent wobble or do you prefer to have the POV mounted to a vice or something?

What LED's do you prefer?
I buy the cheep ones off ebay, but also i have bought the 3$ea full spectrum ones from kingbrite (the freakish ones with 6 legs) and have been wondering what others opinions are.

I hope the new design is going well and i am excited to see what you have done this time!
Any chance for a preview schematic or source code?

I have just used a medium sized motor that is rated upto 12v. As long as the circuitry is nice and balanced, you should have no problem.

I just do a worldwide search on ebay for RGB LED and I select lowest price first and buy it now. This way you can find the cheapest LED's.

Yes, I will upload sourcecode and schematics soon :D
