When you get the thread going post a link here.

Mounted the laser on a piece of perf board with velcro on the bottom. It plugs into the socket I built into each wing tip. The lasers are on a RC switch on the connection board.

To get the RX controlled switches to be a neater connection to the RX I had to remove them from the board and rotate them 180 degress, so the servo wire would be closer to the RX. I decided on using one cell power from the balance tap to power the laser circuit. With both lasers on and pointing at the white wall in my shop it was hard to get a good picture. I guess the reflected light messed with the camera.

Those lasers look really bright! Maybe I should buy a module and build my own hand held pointer...

Thanks for all the kind words. It is a lot of extra work to document a build and I am glad you appreciated it and I hope it helps your build.

Good luck and don't hesitate to PM me with any ?????

The weather has finally cleared out and we got in a good evening of night flying. The Kadet really flies nice. I want to add a cowl over the engine and light it up to complete the job. I noticed after I put the wing on one set of lights in the tail/rudder was not on. The cable was not plugged in good.

After the first test flights I thought the front end looked a little dark. I stacked up some foam, glued it together and carved out a cowl mold. Then covered the mold with Saran Wrap and glassed it. Made a quick cowl, but I want to try one of the ARF cowls and see if it will fit. I also added more lights to the cabin window area.
