Shout out to Greg Duffer for sharing some of his pics. If any of you know Nick Petri, try and get him to submit some pics from the display as well.

If anyone is interested is picking up some fuel mines, hit up Steven Shaw . Theyre pretty well built.

Sorry for not getting this out sooner. I'd like to thank JJ,, Carl Standridge, and James Howard for for helping to get those great displays up and going. I know that was a lot of equipment and a lot of labor. I'd like to thank Chris Roth and Walt of the Shire for handling the builder's showcase. Outstanding job as usual. James White did a great job with the class and thank you Joel for squaring up those stars. Thank you to Robin Eaton and Betty Sainz for all the the behind the scenes work, without it, this wouldn't have happened at all. Id like to shout out former El Presidente Nick Sainz for helping me out. Thank you to the Kovar crew for the wall of fire. Thank you Gregory Hebert for the PA equipment and helping us out there. Shout out to Chris Stasey for handling the group buys and working with the crews on product. And thank you Rex Nelson for hosting us again. I'd also like to congratulate the shooters for those great displays.

I could write a book thanking everyone for their help and enthusiasm. If you're not listed by name, drop me a line so I can square that up and please forgive me as I'm a bit distracted currently.

Pyrotechnic Artists of Texas (PAT) the guy in the blue shirt I got some quickplugs from JJ

We had a great PAT Spring Pyrofest and overcame the weather & other challenges. Thinks to all our members for attending with good cheer! Behind the scenes, volunteers did a ton of work to make the event a success. Our thanks: Starting at the top, Emperor Jeremy fielded countless calls & queries and planned out how to provide a complex set of resources & crew assignments. Our host-with-the-most Rex Nelson and Manager Robin of Nelson’s Fireworks prepared & cleaned up for weeks in advance. It’s no accident the store was spotless, the warehouse & field had ample room to work in, and Robin arrived early & stayed Late to accommodate the club. A big thank you to Betty & Nick from Multiforms ( https://multiforms.com/ ), they brought the gear to take membership payments, make ID’s, and they also produced the sweet PAT merch. If you need logo branded swag or merch, please contact them. Betty ran registration for 2-days straight, a thankless task, she’s a hero. Deep behind the scenes, Ken runs our PAT website, bank account, and assures our financials are 501c3 compliant, thanks Ken! Betty, Robin, Ken, & crew also served lunch daily and Saturday night dinner, wow! The food really helped everyone stay energized all weekend. Special shout out to Julian who smoked all the pork for the Saturday dinner! Builders: Big ups to Chris & Walt for collating all the builder entries and arranging for resources for them beforehand. Walt wrote a ~90 cue Step script so all the builder entries could be shot & judged properly. We can’t thank John enough for teaching folks how to build properly & safely in his class. All our Builders Rock!  Heavy gear: Huge thanks to Carl & Steve of Big Boom Pyro for providing the racks and tubes. Flambeaux provided the Cobra gear.  Thanks to Greg for the PA system with wireless mics. Displays: Big thanks to all the 4x4 show designers and crews, they were great.  The comic relief & flames from GWPyro & co. were much appreciated all weekend. Huge thanks to Phillip & friends, and Josh & friends, for scripting and setting up the 2-large Sat. night displays! They were awesome! A shoutout to James, he spent hours each day solving script issues in Finale 3D & prepping Cobras for both large display teams. Product: Special thanks to Chris & Beth of North Texas Pyrotechnics (NTP), for providing the 1.3G for the large displays, organizing the Spirit Group Buy, and for being a great resource for PAT Members to purchase wholesale product year round: https://www.northtexaspyrotechnics.com . Don’t miss attending or crewing their Fall charity event: https://www.lonestarfireworksfestival.com/ , it’s fantastic.  Crew: PAT Events don’t work without members helping build the displays & move product.  We offer a deep thank you to those who helped sort, label, mount, lift, carry, drill, wire, & setup displays, and disassemble them late on Sat. night & Sunday morning.  We hope to see everyone at the Fall PAT Pyrofest!

Woah

Looked nice, not available yet. Lots of new features!!

Did they mention a price range?

William Dodd I can see it costing 700-1000

This is Nick, I’m really not a fan of this new remote being cellular. Having to maintain a cellular contact just feels like a scam and many shoot sites have shit or no cellular coverage. I got the impression cobra is going to start charging for support as well. Right now their support is amazing and free. But, the subscription model is so addictive to the group. Continuous income for the same stuff they were doing for just buying their product in the past. Plus, the option to make the shit you own not work if you don’t pay the subscription is super common these days. In the keynote at Cobra Con it was a big point that quality is increasing, but also PRICE. Just don’t like the loud point being the price, especially when pushing subscription.

Zach did mention in an interview they were starting to gear the Cobra side more to professional use (hence, greater durability and higher price)and keep the ignite going as the consumer/hobbyist version.
