Second Night flight with Glow wire

Well I went out for another flight with the glow wire SWIFT. I am starting to get used to it and now feel comfortable with it. I will beflying it this way forafew moore flights before deciding on wether or not to put the glow wire on a different platform.I tell yya there is nothing like seeing a WIng (Or plane) in flight with glow wire on it. I would reeally like to know what other people thinkit is when they see it in the Air. You do not have to go far away and you cannot hear the motor. This thing isBright and you can see it from QUITE a Distance. Welll I will have to keep my ears and eyes open and see if there are any "UFO" sightings. HA!!

i like doing night flying as well except i use those little glow sticks u put on fishing rods and u can freeze em so they last a longtime !! i put them on my leading and trailing edge and those little LED lights on the top and bottom (different colours so u can tell which way its up) it werks quite well and when its going flat out in a dive its a green and blue Blurr it looks so cool!

I havebeen just going out across the street. I only really have the one pack as the other 1700 pack is folded in half so all the weight is compacted . I am thinking of pulling it apartand seeing ifi can "Stretch" it out to 4 long instead of the 2 it is now. AnywaysMaybe tonight we can get together. I would actually liketo get some stick time before that. I will call you this afternoon.
