    1 Week Ago - Apr 13, 2015, 11:32 AM - Pulsing Jetpack Beacon LED #1

    I am looking for a Jetpack beacon light. I would prefer one with a pulse option, or that is pulse only. LED is preferred. Let me know if you have a spare.

    What would you guys like the light to do, pulse as well as on/off, or just pulse and off? I have some spare parts that could work, so I may be able to come up with something. What is your timeframe that you would need them? I'm trying to finish my suit for a con in May, so it may be a bit before I have anything.

    If that's what they are looking for, I'm not going to bother then. I would only do something simple like flash and off. I may do something down the road, but I will need a beacon to use as the mock up.

    I'd be willing to get one from you as well.

    I am in the same boat as crumdum. Ordered one from Dakota in December but haven't gotten it.

    Mine wouldn't do what his does, it would just flash and turn off. But the problem is I would need a beacon to use to figure out how to mount the led and what size I would need.
    When I get back from the con in May I will sit down and try to come up with something. I will start a new thread when I do.

    Yeah I was shooting for pulsing, but I do not want or need the option for solid on, or flash - I just want it to switch on and slowly pulse. For the time being however, I would settle for solid or flash, just to have the light in my beacon. I have a con June 12, and am hoping to have something by then.

    I am assuming that the kit would be inside your jetpack. Would you want access to it from the outside or just a toggle switch on the bird to turn it off and on?

    The way I have my beacon now I just have the wires from it coming down to a toggle switch at the bottom/backside of the pack. That little cut out area on the back.

    I was looking at RPF and saw this. I might buy this to try it out.
