    Default Mini/Micro DMX RGB moving head?

    Please post links/pics of the smallest moving head lights you have seen. Looking for a large number of moving heads for a new project next year.

    I got this thing in my room. They threw it in the waste bin when I was working in a DJ shop and I fished it out (with their consent). The blue LED doesn't work and the tilt motor is broken, so not really useful. Most of the time I just let it pan around slowly. It has some beautiful gobos though...
    I don't know the manufacturer, but a Google search for "mini LED moving head" reveals the same unit. The price sticker reads 250. Not sure if that's what you after, but I believe this is the smallest RG(B) moving head I've seen so far. It doesn't produce much light though...

    What type of moving head are you after?

    Wash, spot/profile, beam or effect?
    Or is just a case of cannabalising a moving yoke?
    If in doubt... Give it a clout?

    Have a look at these: http://www.robe.cz/products/article/robin-100-ledbeam/ have 40 of them and they are fast and powerful.

    Also these: http://www.robe.cz/products/article/robin-minime/ its a small video projector/moving head, had one for demo and it was not bad for a 300 ANSI Lumens.

    They are much more expensive but you will have them working next year and probably many after that.

    I'm hunting something much small. Think R/C servos and single emitter.

    I have two one works fine the other one the stepper motor just rotates the gobo with no control I had extra controller chips the company a bought them from had sent me I tried swapping those no change stepper just kept rotating I see there are more chips on the driver circuit with heat sinks on them I do not have any spares for those I wish I could get a schematic for one of these heads.

    I removed the gobo from the one head and use it for a wash light for now until I figure out whey the one gobo motor just spins.

    Maybe the hall sensor doesn't pickup the magnet attached to gobowheel.
