    Looks good. I need to make some time to install my Flytron set of strobes.

    I would've added red and blue filters on the front lights to mess with people. :lol:

    Very nice, I like the clean install with the switch.

    Do you happen to have a link for the "wig wag" lights?

    Looks good. My only concern would be that the light might show up on the GoPro video, especially if flying in low light.

    Speaking of that... I've had the red lights in the front of the phantom completely wash out the GoPro video in low light conditions.

    What are people doing to address that?

    Generally you need to insert *something* in the line of site from the gopro lens to the red LED's (they're refracting off the outer lens of the camera). Some people tape over part or all of the red LEDs, some people use various homemade lens hoods, anything between those two ends of the spectrum should work as long as it doesn't interfere with flight or gimbal functions.
