    Just bought a Polar Pro LED kit. It is just a snap on accessory. It sits on top on the Phantom. I already have 2 flights with it and it doesn't interfere with the GPS. Solid satellites. It has 2 options. Always on and blinking. It charged via micro usb.


    • LED Light Kit fits Phantom 3 Standard, 4K, Pro, Advanced
    • Easy Snap-On/Off Design
    • Includes 2 White LED and 2 Red LED lights
    • Battery harness snaps onto top of Phantom 3
    • Rechargeable battery lasts 40 min (constant) / 1.75 (flashing)
    • Light-weight only 2.5 ounces
    Here are the pics.

    I like this setup a lot.

    Can it be seen during the day or will you use it night flying only?

    I flew the Phantom this afternoon and sunset. You could still see the LED light on daylight.

    It should have no problem interfering with the landing gear. You could adjust the led strip up and down then you clip it to secure.

    Do the lights add a glow to lens at night or does it simply illuminate the pathway

    What do you mean by 1.75 flashing? 1 hr 45 min or what?
    Would be nice if it had a white strobe mounted on top.

    Awesome! I ordered a set. With the landing gear and gimbal cover. I used the promo code SHARKPRO for 15% off. FYI for anyone interested.

    It was my first time visiting the site so it might be because of that. I had the choice to not accept it and continue browsing so I did it. Might be different for everyone. Visit the page and try it

    some reviews i've read says that the lights themselves get a bit hot during operation. have any testing results with this?

    they are the same prices even with polar pro being the vendor on amazon but on polar pro site, the coupon code brings the 49.99 led light kit to 42$ and the 19.99 gimbal guard is 12$ after coupon code. every little bit helps. personally would have ordered from amazon myself but that 15% sure does help

    Seems like the light would blur the edge of the picture. Do you have a video of it filming when they are on?

    I have some of the Polar Pro accessories.
    Landing gear.
    Lens cover gimbal stabilizer.
    Camera & Gimbal protection.
    The 6 lens kit.
    Drone Pen lens cleaning pen.
    They all have been easy to use or not with the snap on design. I just ordered the light kit yesterday because of the self contained battery and the quality of the products I own.

    Okay just went outside and did a test run at night. It doesn't wash out/blur the camera at all. LEDs don't get hot. Even if they do, the wind from the propeller will cool them down! Here's a sample pic of the camera in my room in total darkness.
