@exxos I've got my Trudie in and working great with the H5C1, I'm going to fit an RGB led in place of the keyboard Led, I presume the other two wires for the leds were just +ve feeds to another led?
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

You need the led & PCB... @JezC was asking about them last week, I've not had chance to look for them yet.

@PhilC @exxos I wonder which two forum members might have bought the last two TRUDIE beta boards from Harry then? ;) :roll:

How you going to do that without knowing the schematic, mosfet, resistor values, and led types used.

@exxos I was gonna blag it :lol: You did post a bit about it somewhere.

edit:

Actually for what I want I could simply remove the two LEDs on the Trudie and wire them up. I may put the Led somewhere else other than the keyboard. Not decided yet.

I have found the PCBs and LEDs, but I don't recall which way the LED goes in, so green and yellow may be backwards in which case the LED would have to be swapped around.

I think the yellow is too bright so it may require a resistor change, I just never got around to experimenting with the value IIRC.. and it needs a better method of mounting as it is a bit of a squash underneath the PCB of the keyboard, but again I just did not have time to throw at it all.

@JezC @PhilC Are either of you planning a order any time soon, as I will pop the PCB in the box...

There is actually 4 PCBs on the small panel, so you have to hacksaw them apart.

@exxos probably not for a couple of weeks for me at the mo. So no rush for the PCB but thank you anyway.
