The next part to solder together was the control board. The soldering went on pretty smoothly.IMG_1374.jpg

I decided to go wit the flyLED wing tip lights.  These light include all of the navigation, landing and taxi light in the wing tip. So, no need to cut the leading edges to install landing and taxi lights. I do have a little bit of concern about the lighting of the center of the runway, but I read that the lights are plenty. If not, an option is to add and extra light under the prop to light the center of the runway.

So, we got started today in the lights, by soldering all the part together and testing. All the LEDs work and the lights are very bright, even when using just 9V, instead of the 12V that will be used in the plane.
