    :lol: I was closer than you think. At one time during the 15 min show I was standing in the direct fall out of cinders

    Yep. Been there, done that. You have to get right in to make it work and you did. If you were a mouse on the Phantom, you probably could have felt the thuds of the bursts.

    The problem with the Phantom is that the darn lights detract. Those bright red and green lights make audiences unhappy - they want to see the fireworks and the lights draw their attention.

    I'm going to film some in August at a convention - will use the 550 with switchable position lights so I can park up there and not be seen.

    Wide (middle setting). I put black tape over half the light(s) I had it sitting at 350ft and it was pretty hard to see. I was able to take off from a side street one block away
