I went ahead and put a thread up here

And a Fenix would be a solid choice, I think the Fenix and the Night Visionaire was the biggest airframe count among night flyers this year.

Oh boy - I guess we better make sure durability of our airplanes moves up the design priority list

One of my local flyers has modified the leadfeather Yak55 design into an FPV Twin for streamer combat. he has also programmed up a single engine Yak55 target drone (ardupilot I believe) that goes up to a set altitude and loiters dragging a streamer. The twin uses Emax 2805 motors. Here are a couple of videos of it. One the FPV downlink and the other from the ground of the same flight
