You can use glow sticks on the skids, but glow sticks only on the skids are not enough for visibility according to AMA regs.

"RC night flying requires a lighting system providing the pilot with a clear view of the model’s attitude and orientation at all times. Hand-held illumination
systems are inadequate for night flying operations. "

This does not indicate glow sticks are inadequate according to AMA

Gary,

We are expecting more specific rules from the AMA Safety Committee sometime this month. As soon as we get clarification on specific concerns we will post them here.
