ultra micro light kits

SF Design Solutions micro lighting kits are designed for the ParkZone and E-Flite ultra-micro (UMx) F-4U Corsair, T-28 Trojan, P-51 Mustang and Mosquito. Kits are also available for the UMx Beast.

The 1S (3.7-4.2 volt) micro light kit weighs 2.5 grams and and consists of red/green wing-tip navigation lights, blue tail light and white landing light. A red flashing LED tail light is available upon request. The 5-light micro kits (Mosquito and Beast) have an additional (white) landing light. The lights run full time and are powered by the stock 1S battery pack (or 2S for the Beast) . Flight tests have demonstrated 6 to 8 minute flight times at normal power. Installation involves opening the fuselage, routing the wiring harness and taping it to the airframe. The wiring harness plugs directly into the AR6400 X-port and sip power at approximately 10mA per 6 minute flight.

**The Nano-JST plug is only compatible with the AR6400 series combination board and is not compatible with the AR6300**

Prices are $15 shipped for the 4 light kits (F-4U, P-51, T-28) and $18 shipped for the 5 light kits (Beast and Mosquito). Visit www.sf-design-solutions.com for more information. You can also follow a thread on HorizonRcFlyers.com. LCS

PS -- these lights weren't intended to be a scale add-on. The blue tail light is very bright allowing for easy orientation at night. Any combination of blue, red, green and white is available, just send an email - pricing is the same. A 3mm flashing red LED is also available but I don't like it and it doesn't match the flat 3mm SMD LED's . After a lot of frustration trying to order a kit from another R/C manufacturer, I built the lighting kits for the PZ/E-flite UMX's and the GliderLoft BipeSter. Folks at the local field love them so they are now available for others. Thanks!

Sfds status

IRENE took her toll. Currently no power or tele and only form of data/comm is via intermittent cell coverage. Will post an update once able to start shipping kits again. Regrets, Jeffrey

Update 09/02

Good news: Power back on and Sbach kits are available.

Bad news: No Phone/Internet to process orders. Only form of Comm/data is trusty iPhone. Will start accepting orders once Internet is restored. CenturyLink told us all week it would be up "tomorrow" but today they said next week. All I can do is apologize for all waiting for an SFDS Light Kit. I will be making kits all weekend. My primary focus will be making Stryker and Sbach kits. If you want a specific kit, feel free to email your desires so I can ensure your order is filled promptly once service is restored.

Regrets, Jeffrey

I've tried a few times to order both the Stryker and Sbach through your site, but it won't let me. When I click on the stryker "add to cart" is just goes to my paypal history page. Can you please help?

Seriously, it still doesn't work. I'm able to add the SBach, and not the Stryker. Adding the SBach takes me to a PayPal shopping cart, while adding the Stryker just takes me to my main PayPal page.
I'm just going to order 2 Sbachs (since the price is the same), and request that you send me one of each.

Working on my end and I've received several orders. Not sure what to say other than clear cookies and refresh the page. Either case 1 each coming your way on Tuesday (Monday Fed Holiday). Thanks, LCS
