The Popwings fly very well with the stock motor, ESC, and prop. As such, weight of the lights is negligible and their positioning doesn't seem to affect the flight characteristics. Sorry for the quality of the pics; I did the best I could with the Night setting on my camera. Enjoy!
Great job, Mike! If I may impose on you for a few lessons in how to create a similar setup for my not-for-combat Popwing along with some info on what gear I need and where to find it, I would be most grateful!
