I have developed the electronics. I can not find any manufacturer of the blades.
Sorry. Only homemade

How did you build the electronics?

Sorry my english is very bad.

There are 48 RGB LEDs and LED driver in the blades. The control is a 80 MHz PIC32 with Micro SD Card. The Image are load with USB from a PC.

GREAT project, my hats off to you. Do you have any plans to produce these, even as a kit for someone to buy and install on their own blades?

I think it's too expensive.
It is also difficult to incorporate it into the blades

Im more inclined at how you did it but I still don't understand

I remember seeing something like this back on some Arduino forums.

Adafruit has a kit. It's not as advanced and as colorful as the OP's post, but will handle basic shapes and whatnot.

I'm sure it could be adapted to a helicopter blade, and with some additional programming more than one color of LED.

Adafruit also has a bunch of other neat Arduino DIY kits as well.
