I made my first RC night flight with the Leadfeather design 3-D Delta. I embedded amber, blue and white LEDs in the wing. It was great fun to do a little flying after it cooled off after a shower. The video is not to show some great 3-D flying, but to show off the LEDs. As this was my first night flight, I was trying to be careful flying.

My camera wanted to compensate for the lack of light so the LEDs show up much too bright. The blue does not show up much in the video but is more apparent in reality. My camera also had difficulty keeping the airplane in focus, so my video is a little jumpy as I cut out a lot of the out of focus areas. Here is the video:

AMA doesn't have anything to do with this.

Here are 3 night foamys I wired for my friends getting ready for Wally's Squadron next week. Lots of night flying.

I made a little different scheme on each one.

No. It's a Bixler. Almost the same thing.

A quad followed me around and made this great video. Sometimes it does not look real, more like a computer simulation.
