LED terrorism


Lost the port LED strand at 15ft nose-in. R, W, B suddenly became a single strand of W, B. Flying with only W, B, is equivalent to going blind, no orientation, no direction, cluelessness. Nevertheless, managed a nose-out, terrifying, part tail boom, hard landing despite W. B.'s best efforts.

After repairs, and proving our copter was still all there, the battery died after 22 minutes. In 10 mph wind, noticed it was getting harder to maintain altitude but was too occupied chasing a police copter to remember the time. Air starting a Castle is a complete waste. It's just an RWB brick.

LED leads are not built to be flexed.

You need to mount the LED to small scrap of PCB.
