Default LED light

This may sound like a dumb question, but has anyone ever hooked up a LED bulb to the on/off switch to indicate when the switch is on? Is it possible to do this? and if it is do you need something to reduce the voltage? I was looking for something simple to indicate when the switch is on.

Ad a Voltwatch [link=http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXHDJ2&P=ML]Voltwatch[/link] this will give you your battery valtage when the switch is on.

Yup, you can get one here...

There is one version that monitors for radio and switch problems too.
