I didn't vote because I just bought a red one from you recently. I still haven't installed it yet but my current KBOP has frosted white which I like. I went with green leds and windows for my Borg ship so I wouldn't want that on the KBOP. I can see purple because of all the purple on the playfield but purple light does more to enhance existing colors rather than change them. I will have to get mine installed and see how I like the red. If I was going to be in for any other color it would probably be white.

Tonight I submitted a prototype order for FabD of the WingLED PCBs at OSHPark. Fab D makes changes:
* Support higher voltage LEDs (such as white, purple)
* Add a brightness "knob"

It'll be at least 2wks before I get them back from OSH Park at which point I hope to test Purple and White along with the new circuitry. If they seem to work ok... I'll get quotes on a small number of assemblies.

I was kinda shocked that the FAB A circuit boards were featured on the OSH "Staff Picks" blog:

Great news & congrats for making it to the Staff Picks!

That's pretty cool.

Received one also. Haven't yet received my Hallmark Klingon Bird of Prey so connected board to WMS original ship with hot glue. Let's see how well that will stick there.

Just wondering if there could be another solder points for connecting boards together. It's easy to solder left wing and GI connection to right one. If there would be another set of points for jumper connection from left board in right one that would be easier to solder.

No room for the PCBs to fit in the red area with more connections.

Reminds me I need to finish mine, I bought the hallmark ships hut never installed them. I'll check your site for hookups and such. Looks oos though

Any update on the new colors zitt?

#59 3 years ago

I have tested Warm White and Purple on a new fab with a Brightness pot. They are basically ready to go. I'm probably going to holdoff purchasing these until I get a few more designs ready to be built. I'm thinking first of Feb before I order.

I need to take pictures of both installed when I get some ships in to mod.

I'm working on a WingLED mod for Stern KBOP and a LED mod for DataEast / Bally Star Trek Machines.

Sorry for resurrecting a super old thread, but I was wondering about if a cool-white version has been thought about? I have cool white LED bulbs under my current (stock) BOP to help with general illumination. I was thinking of trying the red or purple but white might be a more natural fit for my configuration.

I've got to finish my BOP ship! I got sidetracked...

Sorry; no. The Warm White LEDs are NOT selling. Purple is only marginally successfully selling.
Red by far is the most popular. I have no plans on further fragmenting the market with even more color choices. Once I sell out of Warm White; I likely won't be restocking it.

That said; I do have a couple of blank PCBs. If you wanted me to hand assemble a cool-white version... we can discuss. Feel free to PM me... or contact me via the website.

Any chance of a Black Friday sale again this year? I just got a Star Trek and my hallmark kbop is on its way. I'd even buy the white or purple if the pricing is better since I haven't even gotten to flip this machine yet so I don't know what's best yet...

Hey Zitt, installed the wing leds however only one side lights up, change polarity and the other side lights up. I cant get both to light at once.

That seems right.
Are you powering these from a DC or AC source?
IF DC; that's proper operation as the WingLEDs are designed to plug into the 6.3VAC wiring harness of the STNG.

Heard back from @Pie-STTNG ... he was running this with GI OCD (a dc source); and had to apply the fix posted by @patofnaud in this thread.
