blueman,

I'd be really interested in hearing how your experiment goes. I use light wires to fly at night, and can't imagine this stuff glowing bright enough to see with your plane way up in the sky. Especially in the small quantities that they sell. You'd have to buy a lot of those little bottles to cover an entire flying wing.

But if it's bright enough, and you just painted the edges of your wings so you can see the outline, it'd be cool. The advantage is it wouldn't draw energy from your plane's batteries, or require an added battery & inverter like EL Wire does.

It's worth getting one of those little $12 bottles and at least painting a few edges and taking it out in the dark for a trial run.

Let us know how it goes!

Todd
