*** WARNING *** people will freak out if you do this project and fly it successfully. Police and air traffic controllers will hear about this if you are successful. That said, don't do anything stupid.
You will need a white foam RC airplane. I used a Parkzone Stryker kit - has to be a "repair" fuselage since the ready to fly version is already painted.
a spool of RGB LEDs with RGB LED Controller - I got mine from www.ebay.com
Clear Packing Tape or Clear Covering material like Doculam or Monokote
Soldering Iron & Solder
4 colors Thin Wire - 20-22 gauge - I used phone wires - they were color coded already. I did learn that the insulation melts easily, so be quick with your soldering!
I used the tools at Tech Shop in Menlo Park to complete this project.
