Flashing lights


DAVE
Attached, simple set up for flashing lights using a single HK switch.
Note the slow settings in the mixes. you can alter them to speed up or slow down the rate,

Tom,

That's ideal as I'm looking to have LED strips around the arms of my hex-rotor which are well within the power tolerances of my current configuration. The second light channel is to power 4 x 3W LEDs to assist with long distance orientation. From what I've been reading, these LEDs get very hot even though they have a metal heat sink so one option I was looking at was having them flash with a 50% on 50% off cycle to both reduce consumption and heat build up.

Here is a simple set up to flash lights alternatively. Adjust the Custom Switch values V1 and V2 for different speeds. Uses 2 switches.

Use of Turnigy 9X compatible receivers


Hello,

Probably a very silly question.......

I have Turnigy 9X version 2 and bunch of receivers that are compatible with it.

I would like to continue using all of the receivers with the a Taranis, they have been very reliable. What would be involved to make this happen?

Thanks,

Bill

Buy and install a FlySky TM0002 transmitter module. Check eBay, under $20.

It's already been done. Now the new threads just need to be used.

where i can get jumper it did not come with my trannis kit can i use a regular cable to use for jumpers. Question 2 i set the channel range to 1-16 on the tannis. Can i use this cable on this picture for jumpers?

I run the HK 3W leds at 150mA (not at the so called 300mA rating), if you put the leds out on the arm under the props they are fine on all the time. Bright daylight can be seen 1/4 mile away, at night at least a mile.

Thanks Oz, that's useful to know. I know that the LEDs have around 120 degrees viewing angle so what I was thinking of doing is mounting them on the uprights under the motors on the F550 with two reds on the rear arms so that they are facing across each other but offset by the 60 degree angle of the arms and the same with two white one on the front arms. If that does not work viewing wise I was thinking of mounting them pointing straight down at the ends of the arms. As my biggest problem is when I have the craft high up and can't make out the difference between the front and back.

I am planning on using MR16 LED drivers powered from the 4S flight batteries, hopefully that way I won't need a 3.3v UBEC.
