And this is how all that fly. Video is raw straight from the camera. You can fix it with redactor and it is going to be just neat but the aim is to show what the filming plane is like.

Last night we went night flying at a local school football field.

One of the most enjoyable things to do with Albatross, Storm Chasers and Pelicans is to put LED lights on them and fly at night. This is not combat but we do fly as a group and it does bring the crowds. We have never had a negative response other than a couple of police officers stopping by to tell us they were getting UFO calls again. Most of the neighbors are used to us and some asked why we didn't do it more.

This design is very quiet and doesn't disturb the neighbors and even the wives likes to see them fly. this is one of the rare times you will hear a wife say, "you need to get one of those."

We performed night flights 1 year ago. Many LED strips was glues on bixler. There are a few videos on my youtube channel .

Moreover on plane was system for activating fireworks.

Now I'm experimenting with powerful ultraviolet LED spotlights and fluorescent paint. LEDs emit directional light and position of the model is not always easy to understand.

Ability to carry a heavy load makes models from crashtesthobby more suitable for such tasks

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to chip in to say thanks to Lee at crash test hobbies for making such a great plane and backed up with top support! Had a few issues with getting airborne but with some help from Lee found that my 3s battery was bad and now fly's awesome with a new pack.

Since I have got this bird flying (about a month now) it has hit one tree, big light pole and a few nosedives with a total of two rubber bands broken!
Nearly 3 hours of flying time now which is ten times more than my other trainer in the same time which needed repairs after every flight.

Thanks again for such a great plane!
Shall get a video up as soon as I get some descent footage!
Gary
