Alright, I'm sitting here with a voltmeter and I'm finding tons of nice 3v places to solder the LED wires to in the wireless controller. I've read that doing this with a wireless controller, the LEDs will be on all the time (I'm not talking about the SMTs, I'm talking about the dome lighting ones). So, is there any place that I could solder the wires to that wouldn't require me to install an on/off switch. Just wanted to make sure before I ripped a nice little hole in the front smile.gif

you could put it on the rumble motors

it would only glow when it rumbled, but it would be pretty cool
