Default DIY Night blades

LEDs came in the mail today. Didn't take much to wire these up. The hardest part was ordering all the supplies.

Default Clear coat blades for nitro protection?

Hey guys, just finished building one of my 710 blades for my 700N. Thanks for all the useful info posted here making my build go smoothly.

Question I have is should I clear coat the blades to protect the copper tape, LED's and resistors from nitro and exhaust?

Thanks

Yes. I used a 2 part clear. It will help the components stick and protect then from solvents in the exhaust. This was by far the most expensive supply. I think you can buy a 2k clear rattle can for about 20 bucks. Don't forget to clear coat the canopy too!

Hi guys, I've been inspired by you and I've done my 1st night blades for my t-rex 450. Yesterday I just tested the ballance of blades when turned on the heli for a lower speed.
I have 2 LEDs on each blade (top and bott). Using 100mAh lipo.
Here you can see pics.
