Just a guess. But I think maybe dual LEDs, one mounted on each prop with possible battery located on the top center of the prop. Maybe a small watch style battery. Seems like a balancing PITA but it seems to fly with out them on the other props or at least not turned on, just fine. I'd be interested to see how it is done.

That video is over a year old. He states in the description he is going to sell, but nothing yet. I sent the guy a message. No response yet.

Or you could us a luminous type paint on the tips and then use some uv LEDs. Just do the fronts as its really good for orientation, that what I have on mine.

that sounds like the easiest idea! I may have to give it a try.

It's a tiny led, powered by a battery, I came across a close up a year ago, god knows where, but if they were made, he'd sell lots of them!
