When I did the night rig thing on my Logo 500, I used 1S 150mAh (like from the mSR)!

True, that's a crapload of LEDs though. I had 8 LEDs per blade and I would probably do 6 next time.

I agree. 6 LEDs is plenty bright and a good load for a small lipo cell.

I use a 160mAh Turnigy Nanotech cell and 5 LEDs pulling a little over 80mA total. I can have those blades burning for over 100min continously on one charge

This is my 120 SR that I rigged up some LED's from radioshack on. I made a Y connector from the battery to run the LED's. My dog just happened to be standing in the background while taking the picture, but it turned out well.

My friend Stu at Cyclone Hobbies just finished fixing up my N5c for the night flying at Birmingham next week end. I can't wait!

This bird has a set of 600mm Red/Green Night Magic blades as well.

well, if you like my pictures you should watch the Videos... the controller is selfmade and it is made for showflights like the DALCON, but it can do much more
The software that u see in the videos is old (some months), I programmed many more effects which look better


...........................or this one
