Thanx.

I have been warned, however that this electrical connection may cause problems and therefore please pay attention to the following warning:

DO NOT USE THIS CONNECTION IF YOU USE THIS APPLICATION IN YOUR PROJECT IT IS AT YOUR RISK !!!

My note:
...the pedestal has light me today for more than 8 hours (without any problems), but the introduction notice is still valid !

It is hard to tell the circuit just by looking at it, but it *looks* like you have your LEDs in parallel, hooked up to the 4xAA in series? Or are the AAs hooked up in parallel too? I can't see any current limiting resistors either...



Without more information I'd have to agree, this could be dangerous: I think you may be risking a fire from the batteries.


Can you post the schematic of the electrical wiring?

...there needs to be added a pre-determined resistance and it will be ok.

I made a track behind the motorcycle. Next time I will give the final photos.
The model is finished, so if someone goes on a Saturday to an exhibition in Nitra, they can see it live.

Good, looks like you have it sorted.

The model looks great, I like the track you added!
