try much smaller kite versions, because that brings the cost way down...
use 1811-2900 motors, gws 6x3 props with a 6A esc and small<5gm servos...
the kites can be covered with white plastic bag material and wired up with a lot less LED's
They are super fliers... lighter than depron, they can fly slower and have superb aerobatic performances, the power to weight ratio is high, so verticals are easy...
being so light they bounce very well.. max rod dia. on the micros is 2mm for the spars with less for the curves
the bag material is fixed as usual with uhu por,

you can draw on the bag material with felt markers for décor.. and the material will shrink at a low temperature for tightening..

I went over to a CF frame with a depron centre fuzz because it gives a far better performance, superior to the basic flat kites...
Having the rudder makes high alpha slow speed and hovers easy , its much better for turning ..ideal for indoor fliers...
the vertical fuzz and depron inner horizontals make placing/fixing the gear simpler, and aid covering
These even have wheels, so can do proper landings and touch and goes...
General lighting is the same.. the lights shine through the fabric on the wings.. and some lights get positioned to light up the white depron

@Ken~ How much will you be charging your members for a kite?
Looking around USD 150 (ARTF).
