The Hubsan X4 is the smallest RTF quad on the market (yet).
Due to its size (or lack of) and colour it has a quite low visual profile.
So flying outside - where it belongs - it is really missing some navlights.

This is my simple solution, I took:
  • 4x 0603 LEDs: 2x blue, 2x red
  • 2x resistors: 1x 22 Ω, 1x 47Ω
  • 32 gauge magnet wire

Soldering the 0603 LED was a pain in the **s


Wired according to following pictures:


The result surpassed all expectations:
