    Okay fellow fliers i bought an ebay after market 24 led front light, man what a piece of junk, had to modify the cable terminal so that it would actually fit over the 2 power terminals then powered up and it did not work!
    so is there a half decent front light that is worth the money, or are they all junk

    I used a front light for a few months but it started becoming intermittent. Also, I never was real crazy about the way the connector is positioned on the battery poles. So I removed the entire deal and don't mess with lights anymore.

    There's some people including myself who have put a whole led strip around there phantom's. I'll post a pic when it gets a little darker here. Maybe try that.

    Looks really cool with the carbon fiber. What strips did you use and does it effect flight at all?

    I bought it off amazon for like 14 dollars I think. I'm going out but I'll post a link tomorrow and it affects the flight maybe a min or 2. Not much

    That's who helped me get mine going. I probably wouldn't have done it without his help.

    Could you post a video of this strobe when you receive it in the mail? I think it's super cool. Would like to see it in action.
