Lights

Supplied led's are not very bright and need resistors in series to work.
Also red landing lights are just wrong.
If you do not mind a bit of work there are better led's that do not need resistors and they can operate directly off 14 volts.
The LEd's have small resistors inside the LED. The ones I used are rated at 12 volts, I ran the volts up to 16 volts and they were fine. However if you put 2 of them in series they work fine and are still very bright. I used white for landing lights, red and green for wing tips and I have some blue for stab if I decide to run the wires.
Do a search for resistor LED's you can find 5 volt or 12 volt ones easily. I ordered mine from All Electronics.
