if the input voltage of this led lighting system is rated at 4 volts to 6 volts,how can you plug it into the planes receiver when the plane is powered by a 7.2 volt or 11.1 volt system ?Wont this larger voltage blow the the led's ?
Hi Dave, In most cases, you receiver gets it power from the ESC (Electronic Speed Control) and is supplied a voltage of 5V from the ESC's onboard BEC (Battery Eliminating Circuit). So, the control circuitry is 5V and that is what powers receiver and in turn, the controller of these LEDs. You should never try to run these on direct voltage from the battery. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
A lot of the products sold by HK China are also sold in the US, but unfortunately not this one. If you enter the product name in the edit box under New Items above and press space instead of Enter, you can see which warehouses carry the product. I buy from the European warehouse when I can (much cheaper and faster freight, but I live in Europe). When the stuff isn't available in the European warehouse I bite the bullet and order from the International warehouse (i.e. China). It normally takes say two-three weeks for this kind of product to be delivered to me. HTH
Jeff, I've used servo wire, stripped the signal wire off (white or tan wire) and only used the positive and negative remaining to lengthen these to make them fit larger wingspan and longer fuse. 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.
