9 Mode Multi Colour/Multi Function LED strip with Control Unit
Multi Colour/Multi Function LED strip with Control Unit - This super bright LED strip comes with a simple to connect control unit that allows you to switch the strip through 9 different LED modes.
Simply hook up the control unit to an AUX channel on your reciever (gear switch would be ideal for instance) & connect to a battery and you can cycle through the 9 modes at the flick of a switch! There are multi-colour and single colour modes, constant and flashing modes and various other combinations!
Specs: Length: 2000mm (LED Strip only - can be cut to size) Weight: 44g (Total) Input Voltage: 7v~12.6v
Todd, The only way I would know how is to get a servo tester and cycle it on and off with the dial to get the different modes. Then to power the LEDs use a 3S lipo or some 12v source. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
After you cut the desired length, can you take the leftover strip and rewire it parallel with the other strip? Would be nice for each arm of a quad using one of these controllers. Is there a resistor here somewhere that will drop a 4C 14.8 LiPo down to 12v?
It would be nice if you could buy the control module separate from the lights so you can set up lighting with all the spare light strips that you have left over from other projects that you used the lights on.
I just received my LED strip today and connected it up. The red light on the controller comes on but the strip stays off. I've got it connected to my gear channel and I've tested it with a servo to make sure the servo moves when I change the switch position. Am I doing something wrong or is it broken perhaps?
The voltage your receiver gives it not enough. I've had the same problem with a different led strip. you need something like this to turn it on. it uses the power of the battery and switching using the receiver: __46040__Turnigy_Receiver_Controlled_Switch
Andre, Do you have the red an black wires connected to a 3S battery for 12V? You need this to power the LEDs in the strip. I understand you have the servo wire plugged in but all that does is provide an on off switch for the lights. They work great on my UFO. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
It turned out I somehow managed to blow the 3 transistors on the controller - think I might have reversed the power leads when I was testing it. A quick trip to the electronics shop and a visit to our local PCB guru and they're all good again. I do however only count 8 different displays, unless the 9th one is OFF... :-D
Finnius, I used a strip of 3 blue for the front, yellow for the back, red for the left (port side), green for the right (starboard side), and white for the bottom (tractor beam.. ha ha!). These were all wired to the battery (3S) and are on when the battery is plugged in and is how I knew the orientation of the UFO. Without them, it would be VERY difficult to orient. All the best and Happy flying!
Yep! That's exactly what I did. I used servo wire and removed the signal wire from it. That makes it clean without a bunch of separate red and black wires. I took the remaining signal wire, put the male (which is actually the receiver end) side of the servo on the ends to make single male to male connectors and put different color heat shrink on it for my multirotor stuff.
Olha gostei da apresentação do produto e posso falar de cadeira compro muitos produtos aqui na hobbyking e são de primeira podem confiar como tudo que vendem aqui deve ser simples de ligar gostei !

Mine arrived today. They're reasonably bright running off a 3 cell lipo. 60 LEDs in a 2m strip. Each LED has a red/green/blue component.
Cycling through each mode produces the following sequence: 1) Slow cycle (Red,Blue,Green) 2) Constant Blue 3) Rapid Cycle (Red,Blue,Green) 4) Constant White (has a purplish tinge) 5) Constant Cyan 6) White flashing (1 sec frequency) 7 Slow Colour Drift 8) Constant Green.
That's 8 different modes I can get, not 9. Can't seem to get a constant red mode which is a bit odd. Good value though. If you don't use it on your planes, you can always put it on your Christmas tree at the end of the year
