I measured the current consumption when powering this LED lighting system from an ESC which in turn was connected to a 3S LiPo. I got a 30mA increase in current consumption from the LiPo when connecting the lighting system. Your servos consume a lot more power than that, so it's very unlikely that you will notice any reduction in flight time. HTH
I tried to put these on my eflite apprentice. Which they all work fine I found that the leads for some lights weren't long enough for the navigation lights on the wings and tail. Other than that they are great. As said not the brightest led but for $7.43 you can't go wrong!
Hi John, someone in this discussion suggested sanding the bulb to diffuse the light making it less directional and I've found that not only does it work but it makes them seem much brighter from all angles. I wish I had known that when I installed them on my F-22. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
Fantastic bright LED's. Good for scale models like Cessna 182. I have ordered them for my friend's Cessna. They are bright and quite visible in the dusk / dark. However in the sunlight, they are not very visible. Good value for money. Recent price drop from 9.99 to 6. something....

Small! Good for a .25 sized plane only. Would not recomend for 40 or 60 plane or heli. Shipping is great....

It has nice case. It is not so expensive. The only negative for me is the lights which is not bright enough. It has focused standart LEDs, I prefer diffused LEDs.
