Thanks, Fred. I put lights on the majority of my planes. True, having them point forward on the wingtips (depending on the directionality of the leds) might allow better visibility at altitude. This will not be a night flyer. I often fly at or below eye-level with these profile planes (I often fly off the bank of a low retention pond) so the top placement should not be a problem. They actually light up the top surface of the wing and vertical stabs. In this instance, they were easier to secure in the foam by going up thru the wing. For what it is worth, and while my raptor is certainly not scale, my scale resources (mainly Hyerscale.com) show them to be on top (although probably pointing forward). Check out the site below...a very good resource.
