HELP!!! After build completion all navigation lights turned on, that was just after Christmas and will not come back on even after checking all connections with the LED module and charging the Battery
After removing and looking over the LED module I can hear something rattling loosely as I shake it, could the LED module gone bad? called local hobby shop General Hobby in Upland California where i purchased the Cessna.
They had me email them pictures of all wire connection from the wings to connections inside the fuselage so they can forward to the lighting experts at Lanyu Hobby located in China. Still waiting as of 2wks ago what a BUMMER, love the plane but tired of waiting not good customer service. Anybody know how a beginner like myself can fix the HEADACHE nightmare? greatly appreciate it.
I am far from being an electronics expert, but I would guess the board regulates the power to the LEDs. Unless there is an obvious wiring or connection break somewhere in the circuit, I would suppose that some component on the board has failed. Extra elements like that light feature come with an increased chance for failure. If you are not knowledgeable enough to deal with a failure related to whatever the additional toys are, at least enough to diagnose the origin of the failure, you are stuck with waiting for a vendor/manufacturer's response.
Rule of thumb: If something rattles inside, it is usually broken. My take on lights is that they are very often not even seen during the day. To me, navigation lights on these planes are a bit silly. I hear what you are saying, but, just fly it without the lights.
Good info and suggestions everyone, love the plane not gonna let this issue overshadow enjoying it. Had not checked power points or breaks seeing how all worked at first, then only fuselage light would come on then they stop coming on.
I no longer have this plane it gave me so many problems soon after I got it, I'm looking for another Cessna to put back into my line up of planes. But it wont be another Lanyu Cessna any recommendations?
hear is a nice 182 cessna with a 47 1/2" W/S with motor and servos. i Like to use this store because they are US Vets that own it.

If you want smaller there is also the mini switch from flyzone. What I like about it is that it is a little quicker, but with a stable flight like any trainer. Put it in low wing and it is a little quicker yet. When you get ambitious put it a larger motor and it really flies. It really helped me progress, yet is still fun
Good choice and a great choice of suppliers. Check the build threads over on RCG. Motion RC is really good not to mention their free shipping. Airfield and FMS used to be together and both offered the C182 with the G-KEMY livery. I still have the Airfield version. The two companies have now split off. FMS, IMO, is the rising star in foam ARF's. Have the 57" FMS P-40 and P-51, both exceptional.
