A friend and I got together and decided our next step from mech was to build our own boxes, and so we decided to buy the dna200 and make a great box out of it, one for each of us, and have an amazing time while doing so. I just wanted to check with y'all, since y'all seem to have a lot of experience when it comes to this particular subject. 

This is my part list, do y'all think everything is good? Please feel free to tell me if any parts will conflict or if we're doing something wrong.

What are the transistors for? The fire button of the 200 goes straight to positive battery voltage (9-12V) and is active high, you can tap power straight off it (with an appropriate limit resistor) if you want. 

Or if you are feeling especially adventurous, there are pads around the onboard fire button for LEDs, but that is a difficult solder job.

Well, we want to wire in an LED fire button, and have it only light up when we fire the mod. Wouldn't wiring the LED straight to the board make it always be lit up?

If you look below the fire button you will see 4 small solder pads. Attach a 100 ohm resistor between the 2 pads on the left above the screen-printed 'F'.  Resistor link

Above the fire button, near the board edge and slightly off to the right, you will see 2 identical small solder pads. Attach your LED there, cathode side toward the middle of the board.

That will give you what you want.

Could you show us in a schematic how to do so? We can't figure out where we would need to solder the resistor. And by doing so, do we not need any of the other resistors/transistor?

We will put one together with an LED and post pics but probably won't be until next week.

Hey y'all, I found this 100 ohm resistor from an electronics company that is close to me. It is almost identical to the resistor Brandon posted, but it has a 50V voltage rating. It's this. Y'all think it's OK for my build?

well, that's an 0603, so a little larger, but it'll work just fine if you get it soldered on.

Still curious and would like to see the board with the led fire button whenever possible

The remote switch lines don't run power? so if i mount a remote switch with an led in the traditional way it wont illuminate?

In theory no...you will want to power your LED per the outline a few posts up.

Who did that with LED?
Who can show schematically (photos, pictures)?
Please.
