Night time + FPV + VASI = OMG

I'm only just getting into rc and scratch building but I've flown thousands of desktop simulator hours and one thing that I enjoy practicing is landing at night time/low vis with runway Visual Approach Slope Indicator lights http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_approach_slope_indicator.

So here's a challenge for all the FPV guys out there:

Challenge part 1: Build.
Typical VASI have lights showing either white (too high) or red (too low). There are usually 4 lights angled slightly differently so 2 white + 2 red = correct slope.

Challenge part 2: Try and land!
At night using FPV...

Bonus points for building a flare path!
