Where to find small spot lights for tail of rc plane?


So i want to add some lights to the tail of my Timber X and noticed that one of the rc companys uses these tiny spot lights on the tail to light up the fin. i like to get some and give them a try but not found much online. anyone know where i can get some that will run on 2 or 3 s voltage?

also what type of wire do most folks use? something small but easy to solder

I plan on doing a how to soon... been doing some research and have a UMX Cessna to lightup, just got done soldering LED's but you can buy them prewired at the site above.... will save you many hours plus it's got the right resistors for whatever voltage you want. I think I need to re-do mine with even thinner wire... I'm using 28ga but the insulation adds weight.

We have a very cool company in Austria here in Europe for stuff like that.
Have a look.

When adding lights to my planes I use wire for winding our electric motors very light and it is coated so do not have to worry about shorts.
Only thing when soldering you nave to melt the coating off first before tinning, the wire is actually very strong for it`s size.
