I am designing my first mega tree. On paper it is 360 degrees, 48 strings X 50 pixels each (2400 total pixels). I am using 5v WS2811 smart RBG pixels with a Falcon F16v3 controller. The falcon has 16 output ports but I plan on using only 8 ports for the tree. My plan is to Connect 6 sets (6 strings of 50 pixel lights strings) of lights end to end resulting in a String of 300 pixels to Each of the 8 ports. I will attach each of the 300 pixel strings to the tree in a zig zag layout (50 up 50 down...). I also will power inject at the beginning of every 50 pixel strand. In my view this will work however, I would like to hear the thoughts of this approach from others. Thanks!
