Fly High FPV LED Strips
See your drone from miles away! Customize your drone with insanely bright colors! Please the crowd with with your own drone light show! Make chasing easy when your whole squad is lit! Let the drift track drivers know which pilot they need to come pay to get that sick footage!
These flexible COB LED strips can be wired straight to battery voltage! They can be cut and joined every 5cm. They come in 1Meter and 5meter rolls.
There are now 3 voltage options available:
6S-8S 4mm wide (for 5S use the 6S Strips, but depending on the color, it may be completely off when your lipo hits 3.5vper cell)
3-4S 2.7mm wide
5v 2.7mm wide
Chose Red, Blue, Ice Blue (lighter), Green, Purple, Yellow, Orange, Pink, and White.
There's a 1 in 5 chance that your strip will come pre-soldered with a wire, I prefer to DIY with a silicone jacketed motor wire, a dab of conformal coating, and a centimeter of heatshrink tubing.

How to Butt Splice and Repair LED Strips:
Be careful not to bend the strips aggressively, they do not like to go around 90 degree corners. If you bend them too much, you may kill one 5cm section, and yet voltage will still pass through the rails to the next section. You can use the tutorial above to butt splice and repair any dead sections! (thanks Bull Shannon FPV!!!)
Here's what Joshua Bardwell and ItsBlunty had to say:
Here's what Shelby Voll does with my LED's:
Shelby is flying the Heewing T-1 Ranger with 5Meters of single color LED's here, with the Crew (filmed and edited by Michael Scott Rue). He's also recently developed a new SPEC-wing with RiteWing called the VollStyle that has channels precut for my LED strips, for easy installation.
