Autonomous lighting 4 U


The answer is yes. U can strap on a 40,000 candlepower light to Vicacopter and have the most expensive flare ever made.

The value in this is stationary lighting from any position for outdoor video and blinding criminals. Because it's very hard to fly with a super bright light attached to your copter, autopilot is mandatory.

Previous research showed the current drawn by the light degrades flight performance even more than it already is, so you need a lighting battery in addition to the flight battery.

So how much will the lighting package cost?

Lighting platform: 150g
3.3Ah lighting battery: 270g

Total: 14.78oz

A new record when combined with the autopilot.
