    To answer your questions:

    1. Depends on the voltage from the batteries. If you are running, say a 18v battery, you'd want 2x 12v LEDs (or 2x 9v) in series so that the voltage across each LED is halved.

    2. Do you mean how it is physically split? I tend to expose a bare piece of wire and then solder the end of a wire onto that bare section to make a split and cover that in electrical tape. Not the prettiest method ever but it works. Here is a very basic example of this from my first Antweight which shows this:

    3. You wouldn't wire the receiver directly to the LiPo. The ESCs often can power the Receiver itself through the RC wire, though that isn't always the case. In the case of wiring the ESCs (and the ESC for the actuator as well), you'd split it off from the main loom after the LED in your diagram.

    Here you go. Missing from that diagram is the radio wires to the receiver. You'd typically cut the red wire on all but one of the radio wires from the ESC to the receiver so that it gets the appropriate voltage (usually around 5v). I should get around to updating this one day.

    For safety (and room to expand), I'd go with 2x LEDs

    All gotta learn somewhere! Hope to see your creation in an arena one day.
