Here is a pretty crappy video showing the Flytron standalone strobes on my typhoon. Sorry for all the camera shake and blurriness...no tripod was used. When I get my Typhoon back from Yuneec someday I will shoot a much better video of the strobes.
Not much to tell. I've always used strobes on my homebuilds but this new product from Flytron allows me to use them on propietary RTF's. With my home build machines I would use a different type of Flytron strobe that was hooked into the Rx and that I could turn on/off from the Tx. With these "stand alones", you have to turn them on by hand before takeoff and of course they remain on until you land and turn them off again.Very cool! More details please!
Yes, only on the front as to give me vehicle orientation from a far distance. The added plus is that they really add visibility to the vehicle in the sky for others to see (and hopefully) avoid.NIce! Did you mount them only on the front? Don't worry about shakeiness, it did a great job of depicting the strobes.
Thanks! Will certainly wait for it to start, appreciate the advice. Any idea whether I should run on Auto settings or attempt to do it manually?Christian,
One word of advice, don't take off until the show starts.
I wasted a whole battery in hover "THINKING" the show was going to start.
