    My first mod and first time soldering :eek: . I was at the hobby shop today and decided to get some white led lights to face forward on my Phantom 2. I figured if bright enough they will help me orientate during the day, and look pretty cool at night. The led strip was cheap, $5.00 for more than I needed. Some solder and a iron and some shrink wrap and here it is. I decided after talking with the hobby shop guys to tie into the power cable coming down for the AVL58 attachment, I am planning on adding the fpv components later this week, waiting on the mailman. I did open her up from the top and do the wiring and connection inside, I then ran the wires to the from of the phantom and out a front vent hole. The led came with 3m tape and it stuck easily. I did have to mod the stickers a bit shorter now as the led strip covers the bottom half. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out, thought I'd share a few pics with you.
