Is it wrong to fit a couple of strobes and I mean just one or two
ie a white under belly strobe and maybe a possible red strobe on the tail to my none scale 90se?

I'm not wanting Nav lights just a triple flash or quadflash strobe.
I feel a strobe means business yet subtle. Even more so if I could link it to a switch or idle ups.

If you approve and think it's a go-er, then how do I go about setting up & installing it / them especially linking to my radio and battery

I've got a Futaba T9CHP super tx and a RX-7 IPD multiplex Receiver & a 2300 mAh NiMH with digi futaba servos / GY601.

check out Maxxlights and their Maxxswitch. With the switch you can control the lights from your Tx. They're some of the brightest lights on the market.
BTW, it's your heli so you can do what ever you want so long as it is safe and doesn't compromise the safety of anybody near you while flying.

Yep,that's what they told me with the Curtec system.I plugged it to my rx,and everything freaked out!So be careful. I have had good luck with my setup though.Bright lights,strobes,affordable.You can see them in daylight,but best seen at dusk and evening.Good luck.
