Icon A5 Custom Lights

Finally the Icon is out and I obtained a PNP version on Friday. Since I know how much I like to fly off water and at night and at night over water.... I had to put some LED's in it. the headlights are from my local Autozone and the lights on the sponsons that light the wing and the side fuselage are those strip led's from... well I know what plane they came out of but not where I got the lights... anyway. Inside the canopy there are 2 of the 3 strip lights shinning through the floor up under the instrument panel and they are all connected to a single 3S lipo inside. I'm pretty happy with it.... just too cold for a maiden flight.

Keep on flying.

Is this the E-Flite (or whatever) Icon? I've been drooling over that really huge one with the retracts, ever since I saw the real Icon A5. Many projects are in line ahead of that purchase, but I hope you'll bring this one to SEFF, and let me crash it for you. We could make it a yearly tradition. Let's see....last year was the Carbon-Z yak IIRC.

The lights look great by the way.

Probably right. After he fixes it, then we can take turns crashing it.
