Hi Luke, Yes they are if you use some sand paper, emory cloth, or something to take the gloss off the bulbs. They are very directional if you don't. Sanding them makes them cast a bright omni directional glow. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
Hi Nigel, I've found if you sand the plastic bulb so the light from the LED is less focused direction and more omni direction, they do work quite well for night flying. A light sanding to take the sheen off the bulb makes them shine all the way around and much easier to see in night flight. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
Nigel, I've just noticed you have your port and starboard LEDs above your booms. Put them on the ends of the booms where they can be seen easier and sand the bulbs to make them shine brightly all the way around. Hope this helps and Happy flying!
Fantastic bright LED's. Good for scale models like Cessna 182. I have ordered them for my friend's Cessna. They are bright and quite visible in the dusk / dark. However in the sunlight, they are not very visible. Good value for money. Recent price drop from 9.99 to 6. something....

Small! Good for a .25 sized plane only. Would not recomend for 40 or 60 plane or heli. Shipping is great....

It has nice case. It is not so expensive. The only negative for me is the lights which is not bright enough. It has focused standart LEDs, I prefer diffused LEDs.
