  • ledlights on Vipers nosegear led

    Hi. Is it possible to soder these two led lights to my Vipers front nosegear servo led? Or do i need some kind of resistance between the wires?

    You will need to use a resistor. Typically LEDs only need 3 to 3.5volts. And, the receiver is supplying Around 5 to 5.5volts.

      Okay. What kind of resistor, volts?

        That's going to depend on the actual voltage supplied by the receiver and the current load the LEDs put on the system. Ohm's Law V=IR
        Here's a link that provides some good information on this: https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/219

          I don't know the first thing about Volts and Ohm. But thank's for the link though:)
