Night FlyingGiants!

We love featuring user threads on FG! This time, it's a growing thread dedicated to flying the night skies. Check it out!

Light Up the Night!

One of my favorite aspects of this great hobby is night flying; whether it be a homemade foam wing with LED strips or a 120cc hovering with Aurora wingtip lights, night flying is a beautiful part of model aviation to either observe or take part in. I just found a thread that was started last night by onfiregrafx that has proved to be quite popular.

I already see a few of them in there that I took at Joe Nall and XFC, and I'll be adding a few more myself! Oh yea, don't forget to add your own photos if you have 'em!

Any new sport planes I build will have lights as well, I hate quitting because it got dark.....
My night flying spans back to the early 90's with Cyalums and tiny Grain of wheat model railroad light bulbs.! True story!
Congrats to the Bradster for making the Cover!

I would also have to add if I saw anything like that at the beginning and did not know what it was I would be screaming "The aliens are coming" LOL!
