I've had a few PMs on ordering more ....
So I ordered 150 more of each of the red, white and green. I also
ordered 200 diffusers!
PLEASE let me know if you want any via PM or post and I will reserve them for you (about 30% are already spoken for)
These LED's are very bright. Two whites could make a VERY low amp draw flashlight (I believe they usually use 4 though)
The whites, blues, and greens usually run about $2-4 each!

RS charges $3 now for 2600mcd Blue and 3000mcd Red LEDs in store... their online store has them at $4 each for 2004(insane). The retail stores will follow suit soon enough (btw RS typically has a min 600% markup on electronic parts)
I got some 7000mcd White (this is the current max brightness without over amping) LEDs for $2.25... RS sells for $5 each
Also picked up some very hard to find 390nm UV (blacklight) LEDs for $1.75 month or so back... professor friend @ http://www.pw.edu.pl/ gets them on the grey market for ~50¢USD
Mark your prices are way lower than most places... please keep them there and I'll buy a mess as soon as I can

It is... for years we didn't know what to call the space ship, so I coined it Greebe after my little brothers nick name and his driving/flying/landing sillyness... especially him and his stunt driving Big (square) Wheel gang of 4-5 year old munchkins some 30 odd years back
Been using it for well over a decade online now

They were sent out with all the others...but they are going to Alaska from Rhode Island ...you can't get further away
I cut and pasted you paypal address directly...was that correct??
I do have some LEDs left before the next order comes....I'd also be interested in trades for the following:
-Lipos or qualcomm 830's
-9 gram or less servos
- GWS 4 or 6ch Rx's (Futuba/hitec shift)
- GWS EDP-50XC direct drive motors
- 3X3 or 3X2 GWS DD props for the above
- Servo extenstions (6" or so)

Here's a video that me and Chopped_D made this evening showing how well the LEDs work for night flying! These are on Chopped_D's E-Starter. It looked even better in person.. you know how quality is lost in digital video!

Mouser has most all the Leds for $0.24 ea Yes same type being sold here.
78-tlcr5800 That's there Red T-1/34" super brite red led.
White is less then $1.00 ea in any qty above 10 and Blue is also under $1.00 in any qty above 10 pcs if you want a T-1 super small do a search for T-1 super brite Led "Your color here" even cheaper.If leds is all you need and not his great looking Pcb then check them out...

Red is comparable, but the other colors are LOWER MCD output. Green is $1.38, while white and blue are .96 for 10+. (they are LOWER MCD though)
To each their own. Thanks for the link.
I have about 100 of RED, GREEN, and WHITE Leds coming on Monday (1/12). I also have 150 diffusers coming too.
If anyone wants me to match mousers price on the same LED with the same output I will do that.(make sure you include their higher shipping too )
Thanks everyone and HARRomeo for the video!!!!

Glad to hear they arrived!!
Here's the information you wanted (plus some )
White -- 3.2-3.5V @ 20-30mA (75 ohm resistor)
Blue------2.7-3.2V @ 20-30mA (75 ohn resistor)
Green----3.1-3.3V @ 20-30mA (75 ohm resistor)
Red-------1.8-2.0V @20-30mA (150 ohm resistor)
The included resistors tend to run the LED's in the middle of the specs (Based on 5V BEC output)....you can amp them a little higher (closer to the 30mA) with 68ohm and 120ohm in place of the 75 and 150 ohm resistors respectively.
All LED's are LONG LEG POSITIVE(+) and SHORT LEG NEGATIVE(-).
If you hook up in reverse, you still should be OK (reverse max voltage is 5V)

Dumb question - but wondering if there is a common color scheme used by most to on planes ? I ask this because boats and planes have a specific lighting scheme to signal front from back and left from right so someone can tell what direction they are travelling. I'm interested in location of colors and flashers. Anyone know what the typical lighting of a plane is ?
