Do you have a link for the light?
Isn’t it listed on the BLOCK Risers site I linked to?
Edit1: on mobile but I haven’t seen it there so I guess they discontinued it. I have seen similar light on the other website, will link you later.
I didn’t see it on their webshop
I have found some simple 3d models for hobbyking 1/5 and 1/8 scale front and rear/break lights. (also found on other places)
Still waiting on the prints but I will report back with pictures if it is a succes. Both together costed me 20 euro incl shipping for a nylon print.
Do you use the turn signal?
Just made this, it is remote controlled (on/off), powered entirely off of VESC 5V line and shines light 15m ahead. Center of the light is focused 5m ahead of the board. Pictures taken in the darkest dark I could find. Under street lights you can still see the light on the ground… pretty powerful for night riding. I dont use any additional hand held lights with these.
I had brake lights too but when I had them there the other lights would dim a little when I was braking so I removed those…
I will update you with more pictures of the light tomorrow, if you are interrested.
That’s nice …could share files ? I’d love to print those.
Just finished mine for Trampa Holypro 35
2x 5W warm white driven by a LDD-700H.
I attached a heatsink, but even with it it’s getting very hot…
I guess with airflow it’s gonna be a bit colder but not 100% convinced on the reliability.
@Pimousse Wow with 5W you’ll need a large heatsink… otherwise they might burn out in 10 minutes. I would go for lower wattage - perhaps but 3W but more of them! Keep us updated !
Thanks for the warning.
I hooked the PWM pin of the driver to an Arduino so I’ll lower the current.
What do you suggest ?
Here’s the (small) heatsink (picture shows a prototype, now it’s attached with thermal paste) :
are you using a circuit to drive it, simple pwm circuit might help reduce the power consumption and the heating
Yes, I can drive 0-100% of the LEDs.
Assuming dual 3W is ok (as @MontPierre suggested), I should lower the current to 60%.
Not problem (2x 5W is like lighting a stadium ) thanks for pointing this !
Thanks was a pain to inlay blue el wire in the top with a craft knife lol
did you epoxy the wire in ? The graphic is really nice and the el wire border around is great. I don’t have the imagination to use a graphic like that. Great job.
It’s burnt into the deck wanted to try pyrography did it with a soldering iron. yer used super glue and bicarbonate of soda to inlay then epoxy over when finished
