Simple Night Blades

Simple Night Blades

A set of simple yet very bright helicopter night-blades. Also describes a 10 minute night blade construction.
Night flying is a lot easier than it looks. Besides the blades, you also need one light on each skid, and at least one on the tail boom. The simplest light source are Cyalume lightsticks, sold in camping and outdoor stores. Use nylon zip-ties to fasten a Cyalume to each skid, and one to the tail boom near the tail. I prefer a light on the top of the boom and one on the bottom. I also prefer the tail boom light be a different color than the lights on the skids.
