Yup I have made mcpx night blades so these 360mm should be a breeze....odd how I have had a few night setups but never flown at night before

Default Post your Night Rig Pics and Videos

Finished my night blades or my x3 only using equipment I ha laying around so it ain't pretty

One rainbow led on leading edge for overall awesome effect

Two red LEDs on top and two blue LEDs on bottom of other blade for orientation

Both blades have one each cr2032 so all I need to do is bridge the gap in the line to get flow....I doubt many night flights so this is my solution. If weather is good a hover tomorrow. These are only 325mm vs my 360mm align blades on currently, but I won't "3d" much in the night, too risky and I'm not experienced yet for it....plus if something fails I can just Th and land, pull out phone flashlight and take Heli safely away Click image for larger version

Oh and both have been balanced by cg and weight so they are good with a couple pieces of electrical tape on one blade

Wow Kevin, that Logo looks awesome!

This is my first go at a night rig. I'll have to report back once I can get some action pics.
