    Default Megatree wiring

    My (small) megatree will have strings of 100 (12v pixels) folded into 50 up/50 down. I am thinking of running 200 pixels off of each ESPixelStick. What I would like to do is supply 12v in the middle of each set of 200 and hang the ESPixelStick off of the end of one of them, so kind of like this:

    100 pixels <> 12v power <> 100 pixels <> ESPixel

    The ESPixelStick will be powered via the string of pixels. Any issues with this setup?

    No problem, just wire power (V+) from Pixel to normal v+ incoming so it is fused. V- and data on output terminals.
    So wire from left to right.....v- data none v+ none

    Each ESPixelStick ??? You can run more than 680 Pixel off one stick. I do a 1000 pixels off 2
    Consider 100 <> injection <> 200 <> power <> 200 <> injection <> 100 <> ESPixelStick

    Sounds like a plan. Thanks.
