This is the complete setup guide for my LED kits for 32" foamies. The instrutions are in the captions of the pictures below.

Specifications:
  • 16 SMD LED's: 4x 5050 white, 4x 5050 blue, 2x 3528 white, 2x 3528 blue, 2x 3528 red, 2x 3528 green
  • Wiring: twisted 30AWG enameled magnet wire
  • Wiring length (from root of wire to farthest LED): each wire to the wingtips about 23", wire to tail about 30"
  • Current draw: 0.1amp (this is measured at 5V, so the setup consumes 0.5W of power)
  • Weight (these may vary slightly): 4.4g for the "basic" version and 5.1g for the "TX Control" version
  • Input power: 5V or 6V from RX

LED placement:
  • 2x 5050 white LED's mounted on the top of each wingtip, pointed towards the fuselage
  • 2x 5050 blue LED's mounted on the bottom of each wingtip, pointed towards the fuselage
  • 1x 3528 red LED mounted on the top and bottom of the left wingtip, pointed away from the fuselage
  • 1x 3528 green LED mounted on the top and bottom of the right wingtip, pointed away from the fuselage
  • 1x 3528 white LED mounted on the top of each side of the horizontal stab, pointed towards the fuselage/rudder
  • 1x 3528 blue LED mounted on the bottom of each side of the horizontal stab, pointed towards the fuselage/rudder
The LED's should be placed so that:
WHITE = TOP
BLUE = BOTTOM
RED = LEFT
GREEN = RIGHT

The "basic" version which plugs into the RX (with no on/off control from the TX) costs $30 shipped CONUS.

The "TX controllable" version...Continue Reading
