I need some advice in how to get all the wires through the wing and still get the foam plug back in place. I added flaps and wing tip lights and there are so many wires running through the channel that the foam sticks out 1/8 inch and the magnets on the foam won't hold. Any suggestions?

Carve a channel out of the foam plug for the excess thickness of your wire bundle.

i used some tape to hold the wires down, and snug. then carved a light channel in the wing plug so it would fit down flush

Post motor swap on the first video. The sunset video was pre swap.
The lights are from nito planes.. Thanks for the kind words on me flying.

Wow! What a neat and tidy job. I admire your patience. I have a bunch of wires but I made it better using a few dabs of hot glue to hold everything together. Not as neat as you but it'll work.

Here's my final product with the lights installed. One problem though. When I put the red/green lights in the wing tips, they worked. Plug in everything else and the green one quits. That's twice and I can't figure it out.

Very cool indeed. Curious as to how you made the landing lights switchable with the gear on channel 5

Very nice indeed!

I am also curious how you did your switch for the landing lights. I really want to do the same ;-) I will appreciate it if you could provide the details, the switch type, where you bought it and etc. Thanks in advance!.

I placed the switch in the nose wheel well with extra foam and hot glue. Test to make sure it's at the right height to activate the switch without causing the gear to bind and overload. The wheel just hits the switch enough to push the lever.
This is the switch I used from Radio Shack.

There are 3 posts on the bottom. Use a multimeter to test which 2 to use for switch up=lights on, switch down=lights off.
The RC Lander unit comes with a slide on/off swtich for the landing lights which I replaced with the micro lever switch.

Sweet Fei Hu! Planned on doing a similar paint scheme. We are going to do the bottom of the fuse, tip tanks and top of vertical all red. I also like the lights, but swore I'd never install another set. I would like to utilize the ones that come with it if I could figure out how to hook them up. Hope to see a maiden sometime soon

RC flying - don't bother hooking up the ones that come with the kit - they are very weak and you can't see them, even in the dark. If you want to go through the work of installing the, just replace them with ones from Hobby King or other brighter lighting systems. I made this mistake and had to redo teh whole thing as I was not happy with teh light quality of the stock setup. My 2 cent for you.

Thank you Capt. I installed a set from headsuprc.com in my sons SR22. Even though they work, I don't think they were worth the time or money (nothing against headsup). They too are not very bright either. I was hoping a simple hook up of the pre-installed lights would give it a little WOW factor. No big deal.
