It is gorgeous! Nice scale-light effects!
But how many channels do you use for the lights? In the static video I see you switching between something like 4 lights ore more!
Nice cat at the background of the static video.

I use a multiswitch prop ( 12 + 2 ) module on my FC28 from Robbe Futaba, that use only 1 chanel, and I connect a module on the chanel on the receiver
This gives me 12 chanel for switching, and 2 more prop chanels to connect servos
The flaps are controled by 1 of the prop chanel, the other one serve to control the sensibility of the gyro installed on the front wheel

It is about 12 000 euros; concidering that engines represent 7800 euros, bought in 2003 ! prices decreased since
Most invested is time
Engines have been paid by a sponsor, and I got an help the the FC28 Futaba
So my part is about 2500 euros, in 4 years, not so much !

Heh, I definitely spend that much on my planes in 4 years
Your plane looks amazing; the landing and running lights add a lot of realism.
