Can you tell us where you got the blinking LED? Radio shack here might be a good place for us in the US. Any pics of your LED setup? Or anyone else? I forgot to add to my RC market shipment the LEDs they sell.... (dont want to pay for shipping twice...)

made it myself... used an ordinary blinking LED + a resistor (220 ohm, 1/4W, 5%). The wire is off an old GTB i had but any servo wire should be fine.

put the resistor inline on the positive side and use an old servo lead and mount it? I think i found 5mm blinking red LED at Radio shack... I dont think i have any at work, just blue ones for our instrument panels...

Hey Giorgio, thanks for the reply.

Do you know if it will mount on current F1 cars (F104, MLP, etc?). Having never owned an F1, I don't know much about how the bodies are mounted/can be mounted.

I've seen used over the 103 (need an high nose wing), it was a touch longer.
it should be a perfect fit over hte 104 due the longer wheel base.

Thanks again, one last question. Will the front wing from the 201 be compatible, or will I have to run the 104's front wing?

You can make one by going to a local electronics store and pick up an led light (green ones also available). Solder a couple of wires and a JST connector and you're done.

Nice pictures! I really missed out on this. I could have added a Benetton B195 in the lineup.
