Wow!! What a great video!! I love the fireworks and the mix of music. Gives my novice thumbs something to work towards..

Bombay. I cant speak for Pecan, cause he is using a much different setup than I am...But I use the HK LED's. Powered by a 250mah 3s running through a brushed esc plugged into the gear channel. I have 150 LED's on my current geobat and that will run about a half hour on the 250mah 3s. The red lights on the bottom are cut down into strips of 3 lights a piece(takes alot of bud light and solder). I have used gear>gear mixes on my DX6i to get different levels of brightness. Although all that is about to change as I am building a new geobat that will have a JR 9303 TX...MANY more light funtions on the next one...

Okay, great. Thanks. I am considering building one by the 30th for a night fly event and wanted to make sure I have enough time to order the equipment.

Only problem with those is the 6v step down i guess you would have to use. Anyone have a better price for the LEDs then Hobbyking? I should have bought more while I was at Hodges.

no not a Rite wing. Those things are sweet but expensive.. I bought an electric Bee, adn a Blue core foam 60+ Inch wing it flies slow right now but I am hoping to change that soon. I need to put true wood ailerons on as the foam ones seem to just flatten out with speed.

Haha. That is a good enough reason for me to follow your wife's advice.
I've had my eye on the DE products for a while, but I am too cheap to bite.

Thanks for your help. I'll post up some pictures in about a month.
