FT Mini Arrow with NightWave pixel LED strips

Well it's tinkering time while everything is in lockdown, and since I've seen some gorgeous flitetest wings with LEDs running down that internal spar, I couldn't resist giving that a try myself.

For a first ever FT build with embedded LEDs, it's turned out beautifully. The white foamboard, even with the paper on really let's the colours shine through.

These are pixel LED strips, with a separate controller and some custom software. Allows me to set the colours of each LED to anything I like, including animating the patterns on the wing :)
