This is how the lighting will look like.
I used masking tape as a temporary mount.
A close up of the temporary mounting.
Temporary mounting is now been replaced with 5min Epoxy Glue.
The lighting draws its power from the ESC's built-in BEC via the Rx.
the tail box to the vertical fin.
Here, you can see how I've mounted the GloWire.
One of the most difficult parts was contouring the tail fin.
I added an onboard switch so that I can fly this heli during the day using the same canopy.

Problems with the new rotor head.
If you decide to "upgrade" the rotor head, I would advise you to get a KingIII flybar to go with it. The KingIII flybar has two recesses in it so that the grub screws holding the Hiller arms can sit properly on the flybar.
