Sure, why not, they barely use any power. Lots of RC models have add-on LED lights running from the main battery.

Calverez while this is true, they don't use proprietary batteries. The tricky part with the stock batteries of the Bebop will be: where to solder your LED stripes?

That's what I was wondering. I'm confused my the battery connector. It's nothing like i've ever seen anywhere else.

Besides using LED with its own battery source there is no easy way to do this:

Basically you can either modify the battery plug itself to use aftermarket batteries like solaris8x86 did in his Bebop 2 to Router Mod (there is a thread in this board) here is the video:

Or get the + / - cable from inside the drone like in this video:

The fire rescue lights are pretty cool. But I sont know where to get them. The link in the YouTube descriptions have links to discontinued parts.

You can power external devices with 5 volts at up to 1 amp by simply plugging them into the drone's micro USB port for power...
