New WL Toys v949 (v929 with LED)

Looks like the latest revision of the v929 with the LED light stripe and transmitter that can turn on/off those lights are available for preorder over at BangGood. They are calling it the v949 to distinguish it from the v929. It looks like you get a new type of canopy also. Estimated date of arrival is 9/15/2012.

    HI, I have the controller board of this and built a quadcopter with it, I just can’t figure out how to control the LED’s from a turnigy 9x (ER9X). Do You have any clue?

      Not yet. Still waiting on my v949 to arrive. Will explore once it does. :) Until then, hopefully you’ll figure it out and share. :D

    Hey there,

    Any news on the lights with 9X?

      Sorry. Been busy with other modding project. :D WLToys switch the operation of the v949 board on us. So it no longer controls the light. And I don’t have a v929 board with ports for LED light to test personally. :(

    No problem! I don’t understand what you mean with “…switch the operation on us…”.
    I have a 929 board with LED plugs. 949 LEDs allready ordered. Maybe i can get through it…

      If you want the LED lights on, and is satisfied with having them permanently on, all it takes is soldering in a little wire. See here
