RE: Bob Cat Copy Falcon 120 Jet
The LED I purchased from an electronics shop in Paris. The price is high, around £25,as I recall. It runs from a single small cell Lipo, directly conected. The mount is a tiny piece of ally plate to dissipate some heat. I switch it on just before take off as im not sure how long it will last without a proper heatsink. The view is very good, nearly 180 degs and it is briter than any other LED i have seen, but havnt seen too many. It has completed probably 100 flights and still going ok. I think it is slightly less bright after a couple of nose gear collapases, and subsequent ploughing of the field. This LED has saved the model several times, when in low light conditions or when the sun pops out from behind a cloud. I leave it powered all the time. The bat lasts at least 7 or 8, eight min flights.
Dont go to Paris at the moment, but if any one needs one let me know, and i can prob get a few and send them on, but wont be for couple of months. The videosthat show it, dontdo it justice.cheers Tim
