Hi stoney,
Yeah, we thought about that, but these relays are heavy duty and already integrated into the flight simulators logic structure. We'd have to solder suck the exisiting relays off (about 135 of them) and replace them with the new ones. Thats two steps per light. If we add capasitors, that just one step. Plus we can get the 50Mf capacitors for about 12 cents each. Smile

Stoney, Michal,

If you take a look at my simulator website you can see the wire diagram as well as a photo of how the capacitors are wired in series. On the website, look at the "Updates" page, scroll to bottom of page.

This is only valuable for those needing to control higher voltage lights, relays, or other, not something somebody who's using LED's need to be concerned with.

I'll bring this one up again:

I'm no wiz in electronics, so here's a few questions:

Which kind of capacitor to use?
What type of transistors to use?
