    Sverige,

    What are you using to power the LEDs? Are you running them straight off a battery or do you have a driver / regulator? I've been playing with some 3w versions of these LEDs and they seem to get pretty hot but I'm not using the company's driver, I'm just using a Castle 10 amp BEC.

    Sure it's fun to play with a little LEDs...

    If those LEDs are going to last, they'll need some sort of current limiter. You could use resistors, but it requires powerful resistors!

    http://ledcalc.com/#calc

    I'm using LM317. Two power-LED, in series, per each.





    Powered by a 4s LiPo 1000mAh, through a 12V UBEC. (A seperate battery for all lights.)



    This can be helpfull:

    Thank you. It required a lot of thinking to come up with good solutions. And maybe not quite done yet, will you ever...?

    To connect the body to the chassis, I use two 6s balance plugs connectors.

    Made a small bracket in polycarbonate, that the cables (to the chassis) are fastened in. Held by the same screws that hold the wing.
