Could I wire 6 incandescent bulbs direct to a spare channel the receiver? they are 6 volts and 65mA each. The receiver is a Spektrum SR415 and a Hobbywing Quicrun 1080 speed controller.

I don't see why not, provided you're not pushing more than 6V to your receiver.

Ive never messed about with electronics so didn't want it going up in flames :hmmm: but thinking if the receiver can handle servos and winches a few bulbs should be ok lol, and the lights wont be on long just for a bit of show.
I think 1 of the LED control boxes I have is rated at 100mA and 6 bulbs is 390mA so didn't fancy trying that, and it would be a much cleaner install using the receiver and making a magnetic power connector so I can remove the body completely.
