My new blog for the LED mod

The LED holders on the WL toys V939 and V202 quads mask alot of the LED light. In addition, on a hard crash you can lose them. Not to worry. Simply take some heat shrink and pre-shrink it on a screwdriver shaft and slide it over the LEDs

I used 3\16th shrink tubing and just picked a Philips head screwdriver that was slightly smaller than the diameter of the LED holder. Cut the heat shrink to about half the length of the stock holder. You can always trim after you shrink it as well.

Heat shrink cut and ready to be shrunk:



Shrunk:



Installed, compared to stock holder (left is stock, right is heat shrink):



Light test, left is new, right is stock:







Now the V939\V202 can give the Mini Pet a run for its money at night Thanks to Bill for the idea to use heat shrink.
