If you have a kit that switches on/off, it will only be on if you Hold the trainer switch.

If you have a kit that is on all the time, it will be on if plugged into CH6

If you only want lights (no on/off, machinegun etc..) you can do what I did. Looking at the video above my post, at 1:17 he shows he stripped a wire. Thats the wire I stole power from, only I stripped red and brown instead which is + and - from battery.
From there I soldered some junkbox resistors to each LED to limit current to about 5mA.
The wires are routed on the plane using regular tape to hold it.

I'll see if I can get some pictures for you if you want to se some details?

Cabman - looks great! Is that Chrome Monokote? I see you've added a clear canopy and cockpit, another big improvement. Also a bottom surface for the wing. Let us know how the maiden goes.

Is there anyone currently selling the canopies, drop tanks, and cockpit kits for the Micro P-51? I am interested in getting enough for a few of each.

Mtflyr made some tanks, LW Hughes made some canopies, including a B/C model. Don't know if these are still available, you'll have to do a search. Someone also posted some gear doors you could download and print yourself, which look great, again, you'll have to search.

Park Flyer Plastics made the canopy and cockpit I used.

I also have a Hughes D model canopy and cockpit, if anyone's interested, PM me.

Thank Angelo, I have PM's off to both of these guys to see if they still have parts. I am currently working on a "GUNFIGHTER" an would love to have these options. I looked into the other canopies as you said also but some guys were saying shipping charges from there are rediculous, haven't looked that far myself yet.
