Hi

First post here.

I need to understand how to wire 2 colours at the same time (G+B) on a RGB led. I have looked everywhere to find this out so sorry if its an obvious answer.

First Lightsabre build/conversion so very na´ve.

Thanks

George

Hey George, welcome to the party. :). If you're mixing two colours for a main blade, wire them in parallel - both wires connected to the same pad on the sound board or the switch if it is a stunt saber.

Thanks. So 2 +'ve and 2 -ve wires from the led?

That's correct. One pos and one neg from each colour die of the LED star, correctly resistored of course.
