Hi, I'm starting this to see what others may have come up with. That said, here is my UFO flying saucer.

Mine is similar to my old setup, but I changed it to white lights in the front, and RGB LED's the rest of the way around that I can change colors with a channel of the radio.
I did order some new stuff that will be here next week so it will change again. I will get video of it at that point.

BTW, that first one is awesome.

Here is my UFO. I have to repair one of the body mounts. It broke on my last "hard landing".

I like the paint job on the pop bottle! I too use pop bottle covers on my little quads, but never painted anything that fancy.

I got a bunch of gemfan 5x3 props amd they keep flying apart on me. Splitting apart at the hub.
Then today one of the front motor pulled apart in a crash. The outrunner pulled off the center shaft. I put it back together but the quad won't maintain a hover. I guess that motor is toast.

Finally got it all installed. Had to move all the ESC's to the top, and took off my retracts. Still might install them again later.

Nice light show. What LED controller are you using?

Thank you,
Your UFO looks like it would light up the sky pretty good too! I'm about to finish my second UFO and instead of just having a circle of white LEDs bouncing off of beveled white foam, it has a 1w white led and a Dollar store flashlight reflector to make a tractor beam.. Ha ha! I can hardly wait to finish it.

Ha ha! I want to build a Jetson Mobile. I saved some images from Google Images to try and figure out just how I want to do it. All the best!
