Hi Gary,

This is way too cool and love the way how you installed the light! I always enjoy flying night vapor & ember 2 at calm night. Keep us update with Plan & spec perhaps ?

Edwin,

Plans (sorta) here:

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...70&postcount=1

Just put any kind of fuselage on it.

I'm using a BW 1500KV outrunner, 9/4.7 prop, 2S 460 LiPo, TB-9 ESC, GWS Pico servos, and a 6100e receiver.

Thanks everyone; it sure is a fun model. It goes everywhere with me!

The real impressive thing is the camera work. They did an unusually great job tracking it!

"You must have a lot of practice moving your head and not your eyes!"

Yes; it takes a concentrated effort, and like everything else, gets better with practice.

"I LOVE that "cigar" shaped Fuselage"

Well, at least it's different.

"what kind of lighting did you use? Is it a led in a straw?"

Yep; 3mm LEDs inside some coffee stirrers (small straw-looking thingies).

Glen, I'm awful glad you started the round wing craze with the "USAF UFO"! What a blast!
