Auto Credit Based on BenSkyWalker's Landing Gear Lights

I felt the need for a way to tell if the gear was Up or Down visually in the instrument panel, but wanted the lights to only light-up when the gear was actually fully retracted/extended, thus I built this little box; Which can be easily removed to use! Not revolutionary, just helps for a build i'm still finishing up, trying to make it nice.

Edit:
The internal lights are bound to the LandingGear group; The Green light and its piston are on the -LandingGear group, extending out automatically while gear is down, and the Red light illuminates and extends out once the LandingGear is toggled to retract.

I Tried to time the lights to the gear provided, altering the piston speed should work for custom gear planes as well

    @BenSkyWalker meant by using two dif lights one set to positive and one to negative. but i think i know what you mean, cause the light is coloured?

    @SelectAKey I wanted to at first, but then the light is giving a false indication that you could land, as the gear would not be fully extended yet, but I also felt the need for a non-moving light to remain seen so the light wouldn't just vanish into the panel

    could always set the individual lights input to LandingGear or -LandingGear, to save on pieces
