FloaterJet gets LEDs
In the continuing quest to make my plane heavier I decided to add LED's for dusk flying.
I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out and went flying last night landing twice with the last landing 10 minutes before nightfall.
Certainly adds a new dimension to flying the FJ, but at least for the first few night flights does not do good things for the blood pressure
Explanation is with each photo. I ran wingtip LED wires into a slit just off the leading edge. I then changed the servo connectors to a nifty JST four-pole connector that has a latch, using one pole as the power for LEDs. Ground (negative) was commoned to the servo ground.
No vids yet, but here's photos of my LED install...
