Is 16g wire for the motor extensions a bit overkill? I feel like the ntm motors use 20g wire themselves? I may go with 20g or something smaller than 16 anyway.

I also have a mix of HK and hobbypartz lights and will run it off the balance tap for a 4S. This means I will run it off the 12V tap - ending up with a slightly uneven cell balance at the end of a flight - but shouldn't be too much. I've done this on my quad.
Interesting idea on the 3-4S balance lead. The LEDs don't draw much and so I agree you could do that. I assume you use a 4S balance plug and cell 3 positive of the 4 cell leads and the negative to get your 12V. Neat way of looking at that.
