Quote from: Biffa on Thursday,March 21, 2013, 22:24:40 I just read the description on that Ebay listing "Fix directly on top of your Dji Phantom with Hot melt Glue for the best result!"Are they having a laugh £30 for a torch that you have to glue to your already expensive quad, I think I know what I would tell them to do with it
Quote from: Augerin on Thursday,March 21, 2013, 19:00:53 Ok, this may sound a bit crazy. When I';ve built my 450 type quad I';m thinking about what I can use it for. I live on a small farm and there have been lots of thefts and break-ins all around me. One idea I have is to mount a searchlight below the quad and have it fly around the perimeter using waypoints. Also mounted will be a sound card with some voice warning that I can activate. Of course I will have to get out of bed in the middle of the night, but I hope that the sight of it will be a deterrent. It';s a sort of a security drone. See, I said it was crazy! Does anyone have any ideas for such a searchlight? It needs to be compact and light. Flying height will be about 20m so it also needs to be reasonably powerful. Would concentric circles of bright white LED';s cut the mustard? Any ideas would be gratefully received, crazy or not!
