For some reason, I thought you were using RGB leds with that controller.

14s 180mah should be enough...

I don't think it needs any transparent covering. The colors shine thru the white just fine.

I wonder what that would look like if you had used strips of red green and blue.

Keep in mind that I do have some RGB strip in my stash.

The right wing is red and left is green, so I used the white and blue.

The wing is wired. Just waiting on some connectors to come in. I ordered some Molex connectors from Tower Hobbies. Will still have to use multiple connectors but they are solder type and should work well, I didn't like the ribbon cable.
  • Leading edge panel LEDs -- 4 wires
  • RGB panels -- 8 wires
  • 2 servo extensions
  • 2 "Accessory" power sockets on the wing tips

I put 2 meters of white strip inside the fuse. Will probably add some more as I get everything finalized. Now I am dying to start covering, my favorite part.

Going to start with the fuse. I will do the bottom and sides, leaving the top open to work thru as I do the final assembly.

Most of the fuse is covered. I left the top open to help with the final assembly. Made the windows red/green.

Too late now but you should have punched out some kind of pattern in the sides of the plane. I was thinking a dot matrix of "BARN" would have been cool.

All the same... Very nice!
