Try www.lazertoyz.com.

The prices are good, the LED systems are better, and the service is tops.

I doubt you will need the capacitors for their LEDs.

If you are doing enough for night, I prefer to power them from a seperate battery. Many you get are for 12V (3S). You can power by the flightpack but your taking chances your not gonna have a problem. Of course, if it's at night and you loose your LED battery, it's going to crash anyway hugh?

Sure, you could solder on more LEDS.. Whatever lead you attached it to it will have that programmed feature... You can't attached standard LEDS to the LED strips from hobbypartz, but you can attach more strips easily

I sit at 64mm from the leading edge. I also have the nose heavy issue, I just pushed battery as far back as possible and switched out the stock nose cone and prop for much lighter ones.

CG on mine is at about 65mm or even less. Still a tad too nose heavy due to a much larger motor and bulkier prop that I am using. For a while I was considering implanting a 9g steel ball into the base of the tail part for better balance (this would bring back CG to 65-68mm), but the plane flies nicely without it, so idea is dropped for the time being.

Airfield is saying the CG is 80 mm from leading edge, then why are you guys setting it less?

Because it doesn't fly at 80mm from the leading edge without major trim.
