This light control board will allow you to precisely set any color from the RGB spectrum and the frequency/rate of flickering individually for the main and the secondary engines of the starship as well as the amount of white (saturation). Please note, the this version does not come with the two extra connectors for additional two 8mm LEDs.
No assembly is required. The controller board comes pre-assembled, ready to use. The modifications required to the kit are very simple. You will need to open up the engines to allow clear parts and LED to go through. The back of the engine block kit part will need to be lightly sanded for better adhesion to the pads.
This set includes the following parts:
The board attaches to the back of the kit part with the two plastic pads and two sided tape or glue. It can be removed later if needed by unscrewing the screws that hold the plastic pads.
Colors, frequencies and the amount of white can be adjusted by turning the trimmer potentiometers with a screwdriver.
The board can be powered up from any DC power source 6-16V, ideally 6-9V DC. It has a protection from power surge and reversed polarity.
It is possible adjust the lights after the hull is closed through a small opening(s) at the bottom back part of the hull.
The main part of the controller is Arduino compatible board by Adafruit. It uses an upgraded version of the bootloader which allows LEDs to start working as soon as the power is turned on.
Rotate the trimmer potentiometers to set your desired settings for color, frequency and saturation:
The clear parts for the bigger engines are compatible with our upgrade set only. It can be found here: http://www.falcon3dparts.com/sd_upgrade/
