Night led lights for our epp light foamies


Bottom light guys, I want to fly at night! The only thing I can find that looks like it might work is this
http://cgi.ebay.com/5-LED-Lights-for...07152009r18190


But I have no idea how much it weighs and if it will light up the plane enough. Any thoughts??

I just picked up some christmas string replacement bulbs. 3 for under 2 dollars. Gently bend up the ends and pull out the bulb. They already have a resistor soldered on for 3-5 volts. Testing so far so good running right off an esc.

Here's my lighted Slow Stick




This lighting was done using LEDs, magnet wire and a web LED resistor calculator.

I just ran some LEDs from radioshack on my typhoon. Just google LED resistor calculator, and figure out what resistors you need to get for the LEDs you buy. I also used some small AWG magnet wire and wired my LEDs in parallel to a spare Rx channel.

These are my favorites right now. Not cheap, by they are very light weight and work great.

The lights on eBay look like a lot of bang for the buck. I may give them a try.
