It could certainly windup the neighborhood. :-)

That is a nice idea which would not work for “John Doe” and his DJI Mini.

The drone shown in that YouTube video is an enterprise level, 8 rotor FreeFly Alta 8 which has the lift capacity to deal with the load of that light bar. His Mini, not so much. Just consider the cost difference between his Mini and the FreeFly Alta 8 in the video; $400 for the Mini, and $17,500 for the Alta 8 before you add anything including cameras, and/or light bar.

He is looking for some cheap eBay special which might have questionable lighting performance when it comes to doing what he wants to get out of it.

....and that $17,500 for the Alta 8 is just the starting price, there is a lot more to add before you could even get it in the air.

I thought he was just looking for an argument. He sure wasn’t here to make
friends... Reminded me a bit of Arlen.

Default Fwd: Drone lights for FPV flying (not indicator lights)

Only a newbie or a troll suggests anyone cares about petty disputes
between posters. We post whenever we feel like posting, almost always to
do with whether or not we like the subject.

Nobody gives a damn about this obvious troll's not-quite-grown-up opinion
of other posters...

I'm surprised at the lack of consumer videos on the subject.

No doubt governments use them. There are plenty of obvious possible uses by
government, good and bad.

For a consumer drone like my ultralight... Anybody who knows anything about
electronics knows that an LED and a resistor (a functional mod) is almost
weightless and will easily keep an ultralight under the limit.

For anyone who isn't cognizant enough to know... The poster is a regular here.
I appreciate but have nothing to do with this follow-on original post.
