    I've ordered 4 luxeon rebel 500mA LEDs
    intended to give a sequence of flashes of about 50 ms each second (Red beacons on a scale helicopter). There will be 22v (70 A) and 6v (10 A) DC supplies on board.
    I presume a suitable driver is the buckpuck one sold by luxeon
    I presume my 6v supply (that also drives the stabilisation electronics and servos) is OK.
    My question is: can I use a single driver, and switch the driver output to each LED via set of 4 FETs in turn switched by a picaxe microcontroller?
    I don't intend to use any dimming function.
    I've read the sticky about LED powering and presume a driver like this is needed.
