Thanks again guys for your comments. Unfortunately for me, my knowledge is very limited when it comes to electronics so no creativity there. All I can do is read this great forum, copy/paste solutions and hope for the best. Although you pick up some useful information trough the building process it is still a mystery to me. I always get sweaty palms when it comes to final assembly (soldering electronics) because when there is some kind of a problem I know I am in dire straits. Another thing is choice of components (led, driver) where I can only rely on BLF member experiences and again hope for the best.

I absolutely love throwers and this one is really outstanding. It throws like hell. When I get a chance, I'll do a better beamshots with a longer distance when I find appropriate place to do this.

So, for my next project, any suggestions for host, driver, led?

You should really try to do the kaidomain 86mm reflector Courui D01 mod
LinusHofmann came up with it & it is just one of the most epic “cheap” massive thrower mods you can do.

I don’t know anything that beats it that we can build from scratch & it is a a proven design by FmC Smile

And the best part is you can reuse most of your really well modded Courui D01, and make it MUCH throwier Wink
If you upgrade the led to a XM-L2 U4 1C you get about a 7% improvement over the U3 you have now, or if you use the XP-G2 S4 you can get a bit higher still but with less lumens & spot size.
The XP-G2 S4 + 86mm reflector could almost double the possible kcd from what you have now.

If you get an extra mcpcb, you can drop in the XP-G2 for example, to see what you prefer.

And the UF-1405 or UF-1504 is a very fun & quick mod for a solid 400kcd in a aspheric lens light Wink UF-1504 is easier because you can use normal FET drivers. The UF-1405 need 17mm high amp buck drivers & those are not available yet, but RMM will probably sell some in the future Wink

Any interest in selling this?

Thank you for your offer, maybe in near future. I have to get my hands on something new to work on before selling this one.

Now what everyone else is missing is that means you might be willing to part with your T08… Dibs, suckers!
