    thanks, all i need now is the green led's which i have led's just gonna use a permanant marker to make them green and mount them. I have a AA to 9v connector pack that fits perfect inbetween the chassis and the servo and i am gonna try and figure out a way to get all the led negative wires to one side of the 9v connector and the positive to the other. anyone have any pics of how they mounted and ran the wires to a 9v?

    i already ordered the green 17mm hex's, and i have a question for everyone. I cut out two of these hornets, i was gonna put one in the same spot on each side, but i thought it was gonna be a little overkill. WHO thinks i should put the same hornet, (facing forward just like this one, i switched the photo around) on the other side also? Please let me know what you think. Thanks everyone...

    i was thinking that u were going to have an actual green hornet/black beauty body erbe...if u can find one...that would be freaking awesome (can i say freaking?...i believe i've got about three infractions for cursing but not actually cursing)...

    btw...ur erbe is still pretty awesome...just not freaking...ha ha...

    Not true. But it would be better if one left one's shortcomings out of the public eye.

    I can make sticker of just about anything, and the cool thing is that you can stretch this reflective tape to fit around about anything. Anyone interested in custom stickers for their RC's just pm me
