Re: Lighting system help

I use ELECTRODYNAMICS lights for my 40% Decathlon. They have stobes, landing and wing lights and are they ever BRIGHT!!!

They offer a variety of options, the one I have has a programable switch that allows for the wing and tail strobe lights to be on when the receiver is powered on and the landing lights ONLY come on when I activate the Flap switch (you can make it any switch or throttle position if you want). The lights use their own power system

There web site The light system is EDR-117RCP LiteSys.

Ask for Andy or Chris at 734 422-5420 (Detroit area)

Re: Lighting system help

Even HobbyKing has lighting sets, but finding any with selectable landing lights was a bit harder.

There are a few kits out there that have L/L as well as other programmable functions. In some of the more sophisticated you can select different light schemes from the transmitter:

There are others in between at several price points along the way. Here is another:
