This is the Giant-Scale version of one of our most popular NavLight sets, and it uses our new 8mm 1/2 Watt LEDs. The 8mm LEDS are much brighter than our standard 5mm LEDs, due in part to the fact that they use about 5 times as much current (120mA) as the smaller 5mm LEDs (25mA). Yet the total current draw of the set is still not enough to require a separate battery, less than 750 mA with everything "on", including Landing Lights! And the 8mm LEDs feature a unique "Straw Hat" lens that speads the output of the LED in a 120 degree angle, so they are much more visible when viewed off angle, meaning they do not have to be viewed directly from the front.
It features 2 Wingtip Lights (1-Red, 1-Green), 2 Landing Lights (White), and 1 Strobe (White or Red). All lights can be controlled from the transmitter, and the strobe is programmable for single or double-blink mode. (The circuit comes pre-programmed with the default double-blink mode) The unit plugs into any spare channel, or can be combined with a retract or flap servos using a regular servo "Y". High-brightness LEDs and a low-drain microcontroller circuit mean that it can be safely powered by the receiver's battery, no extra battery is required.
New Option: For those customers who prefer to power their NavLights from an external battery pack, we now offer an External Power Pack that can be ordered sepeartely. It includes a 2S 7.4 volt Li-Po battery and all the cables necessary to power the circuit.
Deluxe Navlights w/Strobe-8mm (Giant Scale)
All of the new 8mm NavLight Sets feature an on-board regulator, so they can be used with any receiver, any size receiver battery, including HV (high voltage) systems. No need for a seperate BEC, the circuit will accept whatever voltage you may have coming from your receiver. The larger, brighter 8mm LEDs look much more scale-like on today's larger models, and each set comes with black plastic holders for the LEDs, as well as a pair of our 6-pin connectors that can be easily installed at any place in the wiring to allow for easy removal of a wing or wing halves. Wire lengths are 60" each for Wingtip LED and Strobe LED, 30" on each Landing Light LED, and any of the wires can be shortened or lengthened as needed using regular speaker or zip wire. Unit plugs directly into your receiver, using any spare channel, or in flap or gear channels using a servo "Y". and Strobe LED.Unit plugs directly into your receiver, using any spare channel, or in flap or gear channels using a servo "Y". Deluxe NavLights feature a control board that allows all your lights to be switched on or off from the transmitter via 3 operating modes:
Mode 1-All lights OFF
Mode 2-Wingtip and Strobe lights ON
Mode 3-All lights (Wingtip, Strobe and Landing Lights) ON
The position of the knob or switch used to control the circuit is fully programmable, to allow proper operation if used in conjunction with flaps or retracts that are already installed. A small jumper on the board places the circuit into the program mode, more detailed instructions are included in the instruction sheet. This set works best if used in a proportional channel like the flap or aux channels (6-10). The default settings that are pre-programmed in it work well for most modelers.
