That is how my PZ T28 is setup, since the 5V BEC on the Rx wasn't enough to even make the green/white ones barely glow.
There are four LED wires that have a four way quad connector that plugs into the battery port of the RX - real surprised how bright they were. When the sun gets low I'll post those flight pics so you all can see.

My corsair has finally made it to the U.S. Twentyfour days from payment to customs in NYC. On average it takes four to seven days for them to figure out it is not a thermal nuclear device. At least three to four days transit to Florida. With weekends in the way in will probably be close to another two weeks to my doorstep. UHG!

So, 5v then...hum...interesting. The HK LED's I got to put on the T28 were super dim at 5v, and they handle 12v fine...nice and bright, even if they have a servo plug that makes me think they SHOULD have worked with the BEC/Rx. They only draw around 5mA at 5v for 6 LED's...5x that at 12v.

Evening flight

I did not have the camera set correctly so the pics are a little blurred - but in reality very easy to see - if the LEDs flashed they could have been mistaken for some mini brownings.

ohhhh...I like those. I have a pair of single white LED's too, that I may just pop in (unless those are in by default??? Thought they just had some in the wing tips).

Just ordered one. Been watching what everyone has been saying. Have a mpx fun cub and PZ T-28. Was contemplating the PZ Corsair but this has too many features to pass on. Looking forward to getting it.

All four lights are standard equipment.

Thanks for the video. I enjoyed watching it.
Nice touch and go.

Which vendor had it on display? I did not think there were any vendors other than HK selling it. And they were definitely not in attendance.
