Wiring lights
« on: September 17, 2017, 12:34:40 PM »

I have a simple set up single motor, marine 15 speed controller, 6v battery, servo and receiver...
How do I wire in some navigation lights and a search light to this ?
Thanks
Dave

you can also use the correct resister in the correct wattage..i use surface mount led's and resisters..for 1206's a 1/2 watt resister is fine. for the plcc 5050's I had to step u to 1 watt..im running 7.4v NiCad's..  I use magnet wire or brass for my leads..here is the wizard I used  http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz........ I got a 1000 pieces in 10 colors on ebay and the resisters for around 30$us and have enough for yrs to come..i think the effect turned out well
