Landing lights in wings

The Turnigy High Density LED strips are perfectly suited for landing lights. You get one meter in the box and you can cut them every three lights.
I use 6 LEDs in each wing. They run on 12v which is great since I'm using a 3S LiPo in the plane.
I glued the foam back that I cut away to fit the lights. Now afterwards I don't think it looks that good. I'll come up with another plan in the future.
Soldering the 6 wires (2 nav light, 2 white strobe, 2 landing LED) to the MPX plug for easy attachment of the wings.
Shrink tubed and done.
