Very nice! That model has to be soldered? The elcheapo 4ch has them in sockets. I just had to flip the poles around to get red.

yes they had to be soldered and these were only blue the faster the fan goes the brighter the light is so i had to desolder all 12 of them (2 for each knob) and then solder all the new ones on and whats nice is i was able to get 50 3mm red super bright LEDs for a total of $0.99 off of ebay compared to radio shack about $1.99 for 2 lol

So they kept the same 7V switch over circuit, but left the first LED on when the 12V one kicked in. Interesting. Good job though. Ive done this on two of the 4 channel ones with UV LED's, but only used singles so they didnt come on till you hit the 7V switch over.
