Night lights


Hi all, just a picture I had taken of my zaggy which is very visible at night.

It oughta be visible!

Here's my night-flying Slow Stick. It wasn't technically 'night,' but it was raining and dark enough that the lights were very welcome.

Nice. Good time to fly with a forever classic. I really like flying just before a storm when it is calm and dark, yet still daylight. It provides a nice dark ceiling.

I suppose you weren't actually flying while it was raining, but before and after.

Well that's certainly unique. Goodness -- what LED are you using, a Bridgelux C8000 RS Array? I use one of those at work in a lab - crazy bright, but I'd never thought to try and fly it. What are you driving it with?

no Bridgelux Array here
I invested about $15 for cheapest 100w LED on ebay ($12) and LM2577 step-up

30w RGB LED as police strobes (1 min 56 sec)

50w LED (0 min 41 sec)

Dark Yet??

I notice it always blinks. Will it not work steady on? Does it get too hot? Looks like a lot of gear to make it work.

Now that my LED became more power hungry compared to motor (80w 24g) I have to pulse the lights

few months ago I started w/ 10w LEDs and ran them 100% duty

mclarkson, sunglasses became useful at nights

I would have pulled over and put my hands on the steering wheel if I was driving that car in that one video Fmkit

Anyone see that commercial in the US with the key chain cam for $22 that looks exactly like the #16 808 HD cam I just bought for $60 or know anything about it? There is really no description in the comercial other than showing some quick shots and "you can put it on your r/c helicopter " I would pick up a couple spares at that price but I kind of doubt it is the same one...
