I built mine from scratch after amassing all these materials over the last couple of months or so - servo extension cables from ebay and from local electronics stores around town like these LEDs, connectors, mini switches, really thin wires and and some resistors.
Other than bling I was going for basic functionality of landing and navigation lights - to help me with orientation and take-off/landing when the field is dark. The conventional green and red for the different sides help me confirm which way it's pointing (right or left) and 2 bright white lights means its headed back at me.
LEDs these days are quite bright. My wife says the only thing she sees when she looks at the dark field is my heli, and she can see it land on the bald patch on the field
