this may be way to ambitious for me to even consider but I am interested in giving this a shot so any help would be appreciated. Even if you just call me nuts.
I am looking to build our own flashing led lights for our bike patrol. I am not happy with the ones I can find on the net and think I should be able to put together something better and cheaper myself. Of course, since I have not experience with this I am just guessing but from what I have read it seems plausible.
I am looking to build something that is bright enough to be seen from half and mile or more away. It needs to flash quickly. Also needs to be mounted on handlebars or rear rack and stand up to the test of lots of riding in sometimes difficult situations. Will need to have alternating red and blue lights. Battery operation can be water bottle 12 volt type if necessary.
here is an example of one that would model it after....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IY1GF...eature=channel
I have no experience in this area and I know this is probably nuts to want to tackle. Am I off base for what I think can be accomplished? I am sure it can be done for cheaper than what I find on the net.
Let me know what else I can answer for you. And thanks for the help.
