what websites can I go for info or sales on lighting up scale heli's.
I enjoy building electronic projects and I'm new too R/C Heli's.
I want to know what lights I require, what they are for to make it really scale. I've seen strobe lights and the red and green, headlights and so forth on real Heli's so I want to duplicate, and If I can even make them myself.
send links, pics info anything.
Thanks.

I just got a set of Cutek's for a 30 size project I'm working on. VERY nice, easy to set up and you get get a regulator for a few dollars that lets you run them on a 9v battery. Also the landing lights (or any set of 2 lights) can be turned on and off by a transmitter channel or say hooked up to the throttle and set to come on below half throttle.

The set including a green, red, white wide angle, 2 white directionals, 2 red strobes and a voltage regulator was about 80 bux shipped.

try:

electrodynamics

absolutely superb. I have used both these and curtek lights, Curtek are good, and a lot cheaper, but I found these to be more robust, and much brighter.

I'm working on a model of the local Sheriff's department helicopter so I was able to go photograph the real thing in detail.

Also there was some decent 3 views in the tech manual I got off Bell's website.

You can also try http://www.helispot.com they have a database of heli photos thats searchable by any number of options. I also went through this forum reading old posts.
