DIY blades
tail is a plastic tube with some 3mm leds in it
Canopy is lighted from the inside. Leds hotglued on the inside of white plastic canopy, then covered with reflective tape.

Blades: 4 x SMD leds per blade
tail : 12 x 3mm
horizontal tailfin 4x SMD
Canopy 15 x 3mm
--------------
Total = lots of soldering work

Talking Night Flying

This has got to be my favorite night fling video! San Diego, Sorry Finless.

It takes a real man to post his crash! Did you ever get another set of tag blades?
