Hi everyone, First I want to say you are all superstars, your displays are incredible and inspirational. I have been following here for a number of years now contemplating if I should do a display to music, so I have decided to sign up and have read the 101 booklet several times. I must say, it is very well written and presented and I've thoroughly enjoyed all of the videos as well. I'm considering a house outline in RGB strip lights with 12v WS2811 and possibly 4 strip arches, while I would really like a pixel node mega tree I think it might be too much for me to start off with. To start off with I would want to go with a plug n play option controller, soldering and electronics is just not my thing I would rather just start off with an easy solution and have to suck up the $ for now until I can educate myself and look at other options down the line. I seem to keep running myself in circles as to what options to go for, it seems the Falcon is the preferred controller so I am leaning more towards the R2R Falcon F16v3 and using Xlights. I'm not looking to do an award display, just something nice to light up my kids faces. There are a couple things I'm not too sure of and I would appreciate any assistance as I am trying to get my head around it all and to determine if I should just get in and try it, or if I am biting more then I can chew and just enjoy other peoples displays. 1. Am I correct that the F16v3 is used for running the strips? I'm assuming I will need at least 32 channels depending on how many strips I end up having once I work out the house dimensions. 2. If I do end up doing a pixel node mega tree or mini trees is the same type of controller used (F16v3)? 3. I take it you still need to power inject with strip lights? I have many more questions but I figure I can start with these and work my way through it all. Thankyou to all for you help and I look forward to seeing your displays in 2019.
