What is the best Covering material for Night Flyer?

What is the best material for me to use to cover my night flyer?

I have stuffed hundreds of LED's into my Addiction-X airframe and want to get something that will allow some light to pass through...

Should I use: clear, white, translucent, opaque, etc...???

thanks for the guidance

Hello,

Heres my Addiction night flyer. I covered with white solite in the end. Shows the light very well but feels weak to handle. If i was to do it again i think i would go with solarflim.

I will check out solarfilm; is it something they would carry at a LHS or must it be special ordered?

Did you mean to attach a pic? I would love to see it!


Thanks for your input, it is greatly appreciated.
