Hi there
I found DIY Christmas a while back and love it.
Then I found you guys and love you lot too.
Very nice documentation you have and will give me lots of reading to get into it all.
First question:
What is cheapest 5m rgb led addressable (intelligent) light strip I can get with good (hopefully free) postage to build a mega tree. Will need between 12 and 16 strips but only need 1 or two to get going.
Oh and I do not have controllers yet either.
Using a arduino with 32 channel at the moment. (Very nice but time to up my game alot into the pixel world!)

Welcome to ACL, lots of great advice and people here so enjoy the forum

As far as strip for a tree then these strips are commonly used.

As far as postage then we will email Ray with a list of parts we want so he can then combine the shipping cost and we then pay through Pay Pal

Welcome Jaaks, glad to have another South African on here. Now we are starting to gather enough locals to have our own mini :D
