Making my own P60 dropins Pill + reflector suggestion

I'm gonna make quite some DIY dropins. Mainly neutral white R4.

Also noticed that for unknown reasons making my own dropins with better drivers and so on is cheaper than buying already built ones?!?

Anyone can reccomend a better alternative for this:

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/26-5mm-smooth-aluminum-drop-in-module-set-w... (2.18 shipped 5+, and the usual 1,7usd along)

R4 XP-G emitter, SMO reflector wanted. Preferably cheaper. Quantity 5+.

 

P.S: Making good XM-L dropins also seems cheaper by DIY! 5+ that is. Wonder why... making something from spare parts is usually much more expensive than a complete product.

That looks to be the best priced empty p60, you might want to get some insulators/isolators as well - http://kaidomain.com/SearchResult.aspx?SearchKey=isolator&CategoryId=-1&SiteId=1

It's easy enough to make you own but they are so cheap you might as well just buy them Silly

 

Is R4 the highest bin in neutral white?

Better selection at KD ...  

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

The selection (at least with search is not that great) and for quantity the price isn't great either... finding one with smo is also hard enough if available at all...

I have that same module on order.  Should be here in a week or so.

Picking out good drivers is a real challenge. 

Do you know what host you are aiming for?  What cell options?

Solarforce L2 or clones like 504B, 503B or the skyray for a few builds.

Drivers will be 1050mA linear regulators 1 mode and the AK-47 if those from manafont which are traveling almost 1 month already (damn HK post!) will not be nice enough.
