Night version C170

Are you able to turn the lights on or off via transmitter or are they on 24/7?

It runs off a separate 3s pack. You can choose to plug it in or leave it out. Not switchable by TX though.

Navigation and landing lights are always on.

But you could buy a receiver controlled switch.

Hobby king sells a nifty little RC controlled switch (https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-...-switch-1.html) that you could wire in to turn lights on/off from the transmitter if desired.

Got to see these planes fly down at Huck-O-Ween. They seem to fly really well and looked like an awesome plane. Met David and Seth also and they are some really great people.

Hello<
Are there any Huck O Ween/ Flex Cessna videos up yet???
Also, I didn't research this out but is the included flight stabilizer compatible with a Futaba system??? (and is the stabilizer really necessary????).
TIA
rbtNmke!
edit: per Flez site: The Aura 8 Cessna 170 version of the ships configured for the QQ Cessna 170! As shown in the manual, connect your receiver to the Aura and you are ready to fly! Easy to use features like Quick Set and Quick Trim let you tweak the setup at the field using only a transmitter and a receiver with a digital data feed (DSM2/DSMX Satellites, Futaba S.Bus, or SRXL (Spektrum, JR Mode B, and Graupner SumD).
