fatboyfreak, Not sure how you could do this on your Heli, but I recessed mine in the foam of my plane and put hot glue in front of the LED. They are too directional and the glue diffuses the light so it can be seen from all directions better. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
The description says "2 white strobe... aset for landing light". The video below shows landing lights and wing tip strobes. Does this kit come with the white wing tip strobes and landing lights? Thanks, David.
David, you can plug the LEDs anywhere you like. I was considering plugging my red and green into the strobe and just having extra white lights. they look best at twilight when you can still see your aircraft but it's dark enough to make the LEDs stand out. On my next build, I will not be using the landing lights unless I put them on a brushelss ESC and on a channel to turn them on and off. It makes it a little difficult to land when the white lights wash out everything else.. Ha ha! All the best and Happy flying!
You could get the Turnigy On/Off switch... It's about $6-7.
But considering that it only consumes 30mA, why bother... I was thinking of doing the same thing on my Yak 12, but it's just too much hassle. It's always nice with those LEDs anyways.
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.
