The heli guys often use a small brushed esc as a pwm controller to dim the lights. Not sure if your interested as this can add weight.

If you do end up using 3s like I do just be sure not to look directly at the lights close up. They are ok once I get airborne.
Thanks, I'll be using 3s since I have packs laying around for another small plane. I guess your leds are facing outward then, right?
