    Long range night flight

    This was a flight done around 10:00 pm. I have lights in the plane for take off and landing. Once it gets to altitude I turn them off. You can see the plane 3 miles away when they are on. I use a 1000tvl cam and a 4mm night lens. This flight was done with a full moon. I was very impressed with...

    FPV Night Vision Camera?

    I'm looking to buy a light weight but high quality night vision camera to fly with an FPV setup on a tricopter as a gift. I've been googling and going through the forums but I think I'm just confusing myself. Any suggestions would be very very appreciated. Thanks!

    Night flying photos

    Hi Guys / Gals, My buddy and I have added some HK LED's to our PZ Trojan T-28's. We chose this plane as our night flyers, because it is a docile plane to fly, can carry a 3S 2200Mah battery with ease, and it has the tricycle landing gear which is probably going to be a a great deal easier to...
