    I've been searching around to see if anyone has placed light kits on their p3 and what they think of them. Picsof how they look, are they easy to install and do they effect stability or battery life any. If there's already a thread on this, I might have under-looked. The pics I've seen on various sites look cool but I need more info then that.

    I know its personal preference but to me it makes the P3 look cheap like a Hubsan lol

    I would not mind like a powerful headlight of some sort that may aid in visual at night though but highly doubt that will work.

    Why why why .... The lights are good enough... And you might even get more lights to the Lense and ruin your shots...

    Looks like target practice for the hunters out there.

    Why make your P3 look like a Christmas decoration?

    Honestly, again I know its personal preference but still just why?
