LEDs on my T-28


I added LEDs to my ParkZone T-28 to make it a night flyer. I didn't like the looks of LEDs that were stuck to the surface of planes, because they were too bright and you couldn't "see" the plane. My solution was to face the LEDs into the structure so the whole wing glows. Now I can see my plane and not just the LEDs.

I was wondering what you had done when I saw the pics in the SEFF night flying thread. Thanks for sharing your trade secrets!

Hi Mike-

Is there enough distinction between top and bottom to be able to tell upright or inverted? I've got a popwing with lights embedded all around the edge, couldn't tell top from bottom very well until I put two strings of 3 white LEDs mounted on top.

Remodeling my Parkzone T-28 and would like to include lights. Not an electrician so wondered if you could impart some wisdom and tell me the components other than the lightstrips, to operate and switch, on-off. Thank you in advance
