These photos show the strip LEDs controlled via the HK Turnigy Receiver Controlled Switch. The Blue LEDs only face forward where the white LEDs is on both sides of the rear boom. The idea is to help with orientation such that if I can't directly see the blue, it's facing away from me. Ideally I would have used more distinct colours but it's what I had on hand at the time.
I'm thinking I might tripod mount the Canon DSLR, at night, and use the remote switch to do a long exposure with the Tricopter lights on and see if I can't paint the sky.
