    I have been running 10 or 11 ESPixelsticks for the previous 3 years with rarely a hiccup. If you want to use 40fps, i believe that you will need to limit the number of pixels on one ESPixelstick (pop) to 640.

    You are very welcome.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

The main thing is to have a dedicated Access Point like the Ubiquity Nano M2 and run the pixel pops in multicast mode. I ran over 28 of them last year and had no issues with them being out of sync. I even had some singing faces on espixel sticks and normally didn't notice any lag. If I connected my pc or phone to that network I would sometimes see lag, while it was connected. When I used a wifi router I could only connect 5 - 6 esp's before I would run into issues.
    I think Iíve built around 15 or more pixel pops so far and have an umbiquity nano and edge router running a completely separate WiFi network only for my Christmas lights so Iím thinking I should be good but always have a back up plan lol .
