i would call mine a yellow, the more voltage you put through them the brighter they are, up to 12v so if you are running them on 7.4v they will be a slight darker tone. it is still a deeper yellow at full volt,
I would like to hook these up (once they are in stock) to my EDF jet. I've read the reviews, and watched the video - but there's no real clear explanation (for a newbie) on how to really hook them up. I'll be using a 3s lipo - if I want to hook it up to work with a flick of a switch, how can I do it? Specifics....
Just connect the lights to the battery (respecting the polarity).But If you want to turn on/off your lights while flying you need this: Turnigy receiver controlled switch. Go into the video section of the product page(Turnigy receiver controlled switch) and watch my video called "Turnigy receiver controlled switch".It is helpful.
I have a larger custom stick plane that has 7 of these strips on it, and I use a separate 3S 1000 battery to run the lights. I will run through 3 3S 1350's for the plane itself to every 1 of the lighting batteries and it's incredibly bright in the night sky! 2S batteries work fine but the lights aren't nearly as bright.
hello dear tailing
I have a question, and indeed here in the LED strip is the "DC 12V" that means that the matrimonial leds light up only when there are at least connected to 12 V or?
because I wanted her matrimonial love with a switch on / off switch on a 3s 2200mAh lipo battery but I'm just not sure if it works just the nut holding the batteries have 11.1 v hmmmmm
You can use these lights with a three cell litium polymor battery, three cell liply batteries have a voltage of around 12volts butbtheyvare listed as 11.1 because that is the lowest they should be at very bright o aThree cell
With voltage lower than 12V (3S battery) these LEDs will light up but not on the full bright. You can use brushed ESC and 3S battery to light them up slowly like the afterburner effect on EDFs. Regards
1) You can connect them directly to the 3S battery (12volts). 2) You can connect them to 3S battery via switch (can be recever controlled) so you can switch lights on and off. 3) You can take brushed ESC and connect these light to the brushed ESC instead of the motor. In such way you will be able to gradually adjust brightness of the leds (like afterburner on EDFs). In that case take signal directly from receiver's throttle channel or mix it to separate channel. Be sure to use 3S battery to power the Leds. Regards
there is a very large possibility that it is just an older product. very often it seems that newer products are cheaper as HK refines production and is able to lower costs, but they do not do that to existing products.
You can connect directly to 3s lipo (800mA would do) straight with a dean connector. But not 6S, since it is double the voltage requirement, it will burn it.
on the strip goes to RED dean cable, and - to black.
you can get another bec..hk has them cheap..or run a small 2 cell..
they dont use too much power..1000mah is good for quite a long time..
try a battery you have and ck how long it lasts before the go out..
BUY THESE No I mean Really if you are considering buying any kind of night flying accesories than this is ALL YOU'LL NEED! these thing are so darn bright on 11.1v 3cell lipos it aint even funny! THEY ARE EXTREMELY BRIGHT and can be seen as far away as you could EVER fly. I dont know who wrote that first review that says they are'nt bright but he is on drugs!(prob. a competetitor) I have already built 2 planes with these lights.
this is the second time i order the item.like before super Bright. connect direct to battery no switch needed. 3s lipo 500mha is more that you need 2s seem to by not as Bright. do not connect to the motor. one battery work the bast for the light. god job
