Lights, what parts do I need?

I'd like to add lights to my plane..I already have LED lights from a home project, would just like to know what I need to purchase - getting ready to buy some stuff from hobby king.

Depends on what type of lights you have. If they are like the HK single color led strips that have solder tabs every three lights, you connect wires to the contacts and plug them into a battery up to 12 volts. If you want dimming ability, get a brushed Esc and run them through that using an extra Rx channel. I use a small 3 cell lipo to power mine. If you want to use the flight battery, you can draw power from the charging plug.
