  1. dibblejr, would you mind sharing one more time!?! kdough11@yahoo.com. Thanks in advance!
  2. **In the original post, I put channels from the main controller and pixie16. That should read outputs from each controller vice channels. Sorry for the confusion!
  3. I will look at getting the two pixie16's. The complete package ones from LoR come with 16 strands so that will give me some room to grow over the next year. And you are correct, I was using the channels/outlets interchangeably, I'll edit the original post to make it less confusing.
  4. Thanks! I didn't think about the possible problems with distance but it may be easier then to use the pixie16 ready to go kit for the mega tree then buy a few pixie4's or pixie8's to spread across the yard. I was pairing everything in groups of 4 per the website so that change should be an easy one. Off the top of your head, do you know how far I can have the cables running from the pixie controller to the props before I have to worry about distance issues? Appreciate the help! Kevin
  5. Thanks for the feedback! I will look at building the pixel tree with a pixie16. I was looking at the kit from the LoR website and that is what it came with. But the 16 would leave some room for growth. Once I get everything in, I will definitely reach out for some help...I am sure I will need it! Thanks, Kevin
