KBDD Night Tail Blades for 450 Helis
KBDD recognized there was a need for high performance night tail blades. At first pilots would tie light sticks on their helicopters to prevent a crash if power was lost to the glow wire or LEDs. KBDD wanted a simple solution that would not require changes in the way the helicopter performed during the day, and created a tail blade which when charged with light will glow for at least 10 minutes after the light source is removed. This gives the pilot plenty of time to land safely.
This kit comes complete with a 5mm Ultraviolet LED which keeps the tail blades fully charged. The best news is they are just like KBDD's non-glowing tail blades. There is no performance loss for night flying. There is no added weight. There are no batteries or LEDs on the tail blades. You helicopter will fly as good at night as it does during the day.

One note: The instructions specify mounting the LED to point at the middle of the blades. Because the LED only makes a band about 1/2 to 3/4" wide glow brightly, I'd advise mounting the LED a little farther forward on the tail boom so that it's pointing at the tips. This gives a nice glowing ring the full diameter of the tail rotor. (Posted on 9/2/2013)
