well i went to wal mart didnt find the finger lights but i did stumble upon these for my dual line and these really light up good they take 2 big watch batteries and have 2 clips that fit on a spar no bigger then the avia 210 i have on the lower LE they are made for hard hat lights so the clips curved thats why it will fit narrower spars better if you wanna see pics go to the kitelife forum

I have been night flying with the Skunk, on his Rev 1 he uses 3 or 4 strings of 20 ultra bright leds. Each string of lights are powered by 2 AA batterys.
I have doubled up the lights and 40 leds can be powered by one battery pack, obviously the batterys will not last so long.
Some pics at the link below and also some from last years Light up the Sky event where he also flew an illuminated Rev1.

WOW! Those are incredible pictures. You bring such a different aspect to looking at the kites. I almost forgot I wanted to see the rev lit up at night. That was good stuff too but if anyone else goes to your pages.. Look at everything. Very impressive pages.

antman,
How far south are you going in 10 days? If you are planning to make it to Fla. let me know. We can fly. I am sure I could learn a few things too.

I found them! (or at least my wife did, credit where credit is due...).

3 in 1 ring light and strobe. Held on by velcro, available at the checkout section in wally mart (I checked because they only had nine of them and they confirmed that they were stocked only at checkout.

I tried them last night but there wasn't enough wind on my property and I didn't want to drive up the street to the open field to try...

I picked up some tonight and let me tell you that they are hilarious when attached to Stella's tail when she is chasing a ball in the dark!

Any chance of getting pictures of either the finger lights or the ones from Walgreen's I've searched for both and the people that work there are starting to look at me with 911 eyes.

I bought a number of them. If you email me your address, I'll drop a couple in the mail to you. But you'll need to move fast... I'm leaving town tomorrow for a couple of weeks.

Any chance of seeing them so I can decide if I even want those or the others mentioned?
