Kadet Senior ---- Super Night Flyer Build

Kadet Senior ---- Night Flyer!!

I have always thought the Kadet Senior would make a good night flyer. I have seen several with lights stuck on the outside and some with LED tape. I wanted to take it to the next level. Taking advantage of the Kadets open structure I plan on lighting it from inside with a combination of 3-5W LEDs and LED tape. I hope to incorporate some dimming and switching features.

I have not finalized the color scheme. I can't decide on all clear covering, with different color lights, or transparent colored covering and matching lights. Maybe folks can post pictures of their favorite scheme to give me some ideas.

I will build the Kadet mostly according to the directions. Some of the mods I plan are:

  • Tail Dragger, no nose wheel
  • Ailerons
  • Less Dihedral, 1 inch
  • Electric power

The plan is to build the Kadet structure and then experiment with some lighting options. First we need to build the plane......
