Since this is about one of my scale RC boats, not FE, I'll post this in here.
I am building a Billing boats WSP10 police boat.

The kit isn't made anymore so I feel lucky to have one.

Here is the light bar I bought for the boat.
(light bar has not arrived yet)

Thats cool man me and my dad scratch built a Fire boat and A Police boat to recover our Nitro Airboats about five years ago. Then we started building scale and then we got in over our heads in FE's.lol

Scale building is alot of fun. Those lights will look good. Have you finished building you police boat? Some build pics would be cool.

Thank you Casey, I'll post a few pics tonight. You see 6 strobes in the video. I decided to double the strobes, so it'll have 12 when it's mounted on the boat!! :tongue_smilie:

D Smock: I'll use my JR XR3i 3ch FM

For those interested in the LED's seen in the video, I can show you where to get them. I have made a set functioning in a simmilar fashion, but this guy does it in such a TINY PCB (printed circuit board)
He is a great person to deal with I might add.

Look here (http://tjtrc.com/Liglow.htm)... Mine is the V2

* Note: You can add more leds (with resistors) as long as the total of current is not higher than 300ma per output (equal to 15 5mm leds).[/

Oops... that light bar is TOO low profile for LED's to be mounted in.
I'm now going with this one.
