 +The RGB LEDs are connected in in series and can be addressed individually. When a new color is sent to U1, the U1 color is sent to U2, the U2 to U3 and so on. So sending 12 colors to U1 will update the full ring. Drivers for the ring exist in the Crazyflie 2.0 firmware.

 +===== Specification =====
 +  * DC-DC step-up/​down gives up to 1A at 3.8V from input between 2-5.5V
 +  * 12 independently addressable RGB LED modules facing downwards ([[http://​www.seeedstudio.com/​document/​pdf/​WS2812B%20Datasheet.pdf|W2812B]])
 +  * 2 strong white LEDs facing forward
 +  * 1-wire memory for automatic expansion deck detection
 +  * Designed for mounting under the Crazyflie facing downwards
 +  * Mechanical specification:​
 +      * Weight: 3.3g
 +      * Size (WxHxD): 33x33x5.5mm

 +====== Getting started with the LED Ring expansion deck ======
 +
 +To get started with the LED Ring expansion deck you can either control the LEDs using the client, or by code.
 +
 +==== Using the Client ==== 
 +
 +Start the cfclient
 +
 +Connect to your Crazyflie and make sure your //LED// tab is visible.
 +If not, go to View -> Tabs -> LED tab
 +
 +Now you can address each LED individually and set its RGB color.
 +
 +==== Using code ====
 +
 +You can easily control the LEDs by using the [[https://​github.com/​bitcraze/​crazyflie-lib-python|Crazyflie Python lib]]
 +
 +There'​s two scripts in //​Examples//​ that covers the basics:
 +  * basicLedparamSync.py
 +  * basicLedmemSync.py
 +
 +You can then modify the scripts to your needs by adjusting the color effects, fade effects, RBG values, timings and much more. There'​s really no limit to what you can do with this!
