My Dollar Tree Foamboard Jet with LEDs!

Just flew it tonight, fun times! Some people came over asking, "WHAT THE @#$! IS THAT???"

I learned that just taping LED strips on the plane is actually probably not the best use of the light. When the LEDs are pointed right at me, it's blindingly bright and kills my night vision, yet at other angles the plane is nearly dark and hard to see.

My plan now is to find a way to diffuse them and try to light the flat surfaces, so LEDs pointing IN and not OUT.

I just found this thread so now I'm going to start reading backwards
