    I like them too, but can't use them with my prop guards. Polarpro has a neat set that lights the landing gear legs on Amazon. I'll post a pic when I get them.

    Prop Guards for "close ups", Skid Extenders (work well in grassy areas).

    Seems like a bad idea to put the battery directly on top of the P3's GPS receiver?

    Wow, never thought about that. Boy am I dumb. Back to Amazon it goes. Thanks for opening my eyes. Big dummy I am.
    I'm bummed out now. Thought it was pretty cool. Now it's back to shopping for lights.

    Don't jump the gun. Just relocate it. Get creative

    I was thinking the same thing about location on top of the GPS receiver. Maybe splice in a couple longer wires to allow the battery to be moved back toward the back of the bird? I'm guessing a pretty lightweight battery pack, so probably won't hurt the balance too much.

    I wouldn't freak out about the GPS. Try a simple test, put on the lights see how many sats it connects too. Then go up about 200 ft and check again. Polar Pro makes pretty good accessories. I own several of their products. Never thought of lights. I like the snap on snap off idea. It looks easy like the rest of their products.
