This Radio Controlled airplane is a scratch built 1936 Lanzo Record Breaker with an eight foot wing span. It is about 12 years old & has seen many configurations from gas powered tow plane, camera ship, autonomous test platform, to video transmitting search plane. In its current configuration, it is a Night Nite flying rc airplane with 30 meters of LED lights.
(I know I said 6 meter in the video, but I was nervous)
Thats a total of one thousand eight hundred individual led lights The motor is a Hacker B-50 L-13 with gearbox, prop is 20X10, thats a 20 inch diameter, with a Castle Creations 80 AMP speed control and a six cell 5000 Mah Thunder Power Extreme V2 li-po motor battery.
The LED are powered by three separate 3 cell 2100 Mah li-po batteries. The ship was flown at the SCCMAS facility in Morgan Hill, California by Walter Colby. Don't complain about the camera work I found the camera guy in the home depot parking lot. wcolby HD www.sccmas.org

The LEDs draw approximately 1.2 amps for every 5 meters at 11.1Volts.
I have 5 meters of red & 5 meters of green in the wing run by a single 2100 Mah 3 cell lithium polymer battery.
I have 5 meters of blue on the tail & 5 meters of white on the sides of the fuselage run by another 2100 Mah 3 cell lithium polymer battery pack.
And finally there is 10 meters of white LED on the bottom of the fuselage run by a third 2100 Mah 3 cell lithium polymer battery.
I am not an electrician but the lights run for about 50 minutes, the part I appreciate is that when one battery dies the others continue to operate.
The airplane motor & servo control is powered by a 6 cell 5000 mah battery that should fly the plane for about 45 minutes.
This was the first flight for this configuration so the flight was made after sunset,.this aircraft is a night flyer but no claim is made that it is flying in the dark. granted it is not pitch black sky , that is not my fault, if you feel cheated, that's not my fault either.
