This my First Night Heli!!! Flew it to night but still having some wobbling problems. Will check blades for proper balancing. I use Torsion 550 Night Blades with a V-Bar 4.0 and KBDD Night Blades on the Tail. LED strips on the landing gear and cold light strings for canopy and boom all running from a 2s 800mah lipo.
will send more pic's.

Hey folks, I started working on my night 450 night rig today, and just got the canopy finished. I put some LEDs on the inside, cause looking at the other night flight rigs, there's a dead spot when you got the tail pointing right where you can't see much. You can see it bright as day from the back now, and give the canopy a nice green glow.

Here's where I'm at:

Here's my 450 night setup that I finished last weekend. It has 2 light strings along with a light set that I bought a few years ago to use on my first heli but never used.

@ChrisH

I use Torsion Night Blades main and tail blades. The Mains are a little bit soft but they light up pretty good. Tail authority is good though.
