    Question Is my pi going to be overloaded?

    Hello, I have a pi 3 model b+. I am using the wireless wifi to run the show. That's being output through the pi Ethernet port to a BBB with octoscroller cape running FPP.
    I also have an FM transmitter from adafruit on the gpio pins of the pi. Then I got speakers being output from the pi. Lastly I have a renard ss24 and a homebrew Arduino 12 channel controller connected to the pi usb ports. I think I'm over doing it.... Am I?

    I doubt it, Pis have a lot of power for what we do.

    Ok thank you. I bought a heat sync with a fan to help it a bit.

    Add 50,000 (Yes fifty thousand) pixels and you might come close to overloading the PI


    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.

    Oh dang, lol. I was worried about the power it was drawing from the transmitter, the ethernet port for BBB, and the 2 USB's. Pi's are more powerful than I thought!
