Hi guys first post :D
Has anybody used a lens tube with a tv-b-gone ?
here is a link http://www.cix.co.uk/~lasertag/PDF_files/sglens.pdf
I made one with a hi fi remote a while ago and got some excellent range
I will be ordering a kit as soon as a European one is available :D

EDIT: A more complete description on how to construct lens tubes and the calculations needed can be found here http://lasertagparts.com/mtoptics.htm

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think there are European codes available on the forums here. If you have a programmer, you could use the NA version, and if you don't maybe adafruit will program it specially for you.

:D That's great i'm looking forward to building a four barrel super duper tv-b-gone sniper thing.
How will I know when it is in stock will it show up in the shop or will I have to ask ?
