Default Turn your paint on ????!!

How about turning the paint that's on your RV on in the dark, someone should do it before the FAA writes a regulation against it. This is really thinking out of the box.

Something on the lower side of the wings would be cool and cause a lot of UFO reports after a night flight.

I don't know how practicle it would be but could you imagine entering the ATA of a small busy airport at night using that technology. Sure would make "see and avoid" easier.

That's pretty cool. I wonder how much power it draws.

You could paint the bottom of your plane and be virtually invisible in the daytime from below. Yes, daytime.

The military should be their biggest customer. Where do we invest?????

Default Night airshow application

I wonder who will be the first to put it on a plane for night airshows. Then the pyrotechnics could be added as highlights instead of continuous.
