Just ordered an F48 and 3 receivers. Waiting for the post person to arrive and start engineering my first scene. I already have a Pi 3 and hardware. Any tips or help ensuring success will be great! 8)

Tip #1 Use the search function (here, on Facebook, in other forums like Aus Christmas Lighting) - your question has probably been answered and the knowledge is already out there if you are willing to search and read/watch.

Tip #2 Don't be afraid to try and fail.  Do your research and then don't be afraid to try.  (Not with everything - don't "try" with live full voltage as it can hurt and cause death) but for the majority of ideas/questions that new folks have you can try and figure out what works best for you.

Tip #3 Give back - if your "trial" ends up being something new, share with the community so others can learn.

Hope this helps, mv
