2 x Mini LED Night Blade Conversion Strips with LED'S and Power Switch attached.
2 x 1s 20mAh Lipos already attached to Blade Kit.

FWIW, because of the eye's persistence, only 1 LED per Blade is really needed. In other words, it could have been done with a top LED on one blade, and a bottom LED on the other Blade. Here's an example of LED(s) mounted one side per Blade: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...postcount=5397

Also as shown in the photo in the above linked post, PowerRegulators could have reduced cost and more importantly weight by using/mounting only 1 common/shared LiPo on top of the Main Rotor Hub. Eliminating and only using 1 shared LiPo would have eliminated about 0.5 g (or more?), and reduced cost about $5.
