    So my plane has an extra wire coming from the electronics to power fpv. I was wondering, can I use this to power LEDs? Thanks!

    Do you already have video on how to set up the lighting to be turned on and off with a tx switch like you have in the night flying video? If so I can't find it. Thanks.

    'Glow wire' aka 'EL wire' or Electro-luminescent wire.. made famous by the raver community some years ago!

    also a trick i learned is to put single lights in drinking straws to get diffrent effects.

    You can use the wires form network cables (TP-cables) if you have some spare

    usually somewhere between 3-5V, but the LED strips tend to have built-in resistor, so they can take 12V in

    would appreciate any info on creating the jumper to bypass the lights so they don't turn on and use battery power during daylight hours- thank you

    Can you bypass the remote switch and just solder the LEDs to the jumper? Like in your diagram minus the remote switch.

    Very nice video! I'd like to add lights to the Radian Pro where I could plug the battery into the lights then inot the receiver. I have NO skills building so I stick with the RTF and BNF versions, any suggestions, thanks

    @msteer79 take yourself to jaycar and buy a roll of 0.315mm enamel coated copper wire, it works great for hooking up LED's and making extensions for sub 5gram servos, just make sure you have a hot soldering iron to melt off the enamel coating before you solder. You could also rip open an ethernet cable and use that wire of do what these guys are doing and use telephone wire.

    Hey guys, fantastic vids, keep it up!!!

    Can you please tell me what the best wire/cable from hobbyking to use, to install the turnigy LED strips??? I would be cutting them up and placeing them in different parts of the plane like you have, I just want to know the best and lightest cable to use, to chain them together, and to run them from the battery. I will be putting them on A leadfeather epp yak55, so I need the wire as light as possible.

    Cheers, From New Zealand

    Can i give one tip insert lighting inside the aircraft. Then they will see that the plane lit up inside, not just outside.Akromaster is perfect , it split in two sou it is easy to mount inside the plane

    Can you do a review about a 3D / stunt plane like the superlight Edge540EP 3D kit from hobbycity?
