    I don't believe no. You should space it from the foam, the foam will insulate the back removing over half the heat-sinking potential.

    Good point, I will come up with some sort of enclosure or something with air scoops hehe.

    Hopefully they arrive soon so I can actually do some testing, I have so much stuff to do for this plane I feel like I will be lucky to have it flying in a month!

    Thinking about buying a couple of these and mounting the LED with its reflector on my airplane. Would still have to make my own driver circuit, but I'm pretty confident I can handle that.

    Hugo,

    I am not so interested in the LED's, but would love to buy some drivers from you. Think you could come up with a kit for that, wouldn't mind soldering it together myself. Would also buy the LED's, but it would probably be hard to beat prices found on the internet. A driver kit should work well for you, couple small components in a bag, should be too much overhead. I'm just too lazy to track down all the componenents.

    Off the shelf drivers don't please me that much, so I am looking at designing my own drivers.

    The flashlight you linked have its own driver that work on 1S.

    E-chaser,
    The driver I want to design is exactly that, hook up you own light or have a ready-to-light unit.

    I started the project features laydown:

    RC controlled LED dimming (0-4A)
    Button (lo/med/hi/off) if no rc channel is available.
    Cycling main power quickly cycle trough (lo/med/hi/off) for flahlight modders.
    Optional temperature sensor for LED protection.
    Low voltage lipo protection
    2-4S supply
    1-4 LED load
    Stackable architecture to control multiples strings with same channel/button.

    I'll be interested if it won't be too expensive!
