Question
HK Light Strip Wiring 101

Do the strips have to be wired from the end of one to the other? Or can I run wires from the power connection to each strip individually?

Assuming you're talking about these: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...lue_1mtr_.html (or one of the color variants)

You can do it either way, but wiring them individual usually requires more wire... Remember that the smallest you can cut them is 3 leds and you must cut on the indicated cut lines.

How's the flying weather in GR? I'm from Marquette originally.

Thanks. I assumed it wouldn't make a difference, but thought it better to ask first. The reason being, end to end wiring in this plane with where I'm putting the strips will be a pain.

Weather has been decent. Little to no snow right now, so no skis required. Bit windy lately, but we flew on Jan 1st again this year and had a good turnout with winds ~5mph, partly sunny and not overly cold.

also you can soldier onto a strip and take off in another direction anywhere along the run. very convenient.
