these lights would be so easy to adapt to a dualie, the standoffs are already secure and the frame is what the lights would be butted up against for a more rigid structure. It will affect overall balance, but how much I'm not sure,..... more experiments to chase

More interesting would be to use 4 lights - 2 aimed out and 2 aimed in!! Illuminate the sail and have "spotlights" to you the flier!

Just my preference. .

I ordered 3 sets to experiment with my existing light set. RGB for the psychedelic look, white, and amber (to match my existing set). I am hoping I will like the look of light mounted to the vertical spars +/- corners to add to the effect of my Jim Cox lights. Without the sticks the benefits will be limited, but maybe they will be worth the effort. If not, I will have some to share.

OK. I followed the link and ordered a set. I hope these work. I do worry about them staying snug, but if Paul insists they're good, then that's ok with me. Now I hope I can get enought nighttime wind to fly. The problem with flying in the middle of the continent is that the winds usually die down when the sun sets.

plan for no-wind and you will not be disappointed, location is almost more important than the equipment selection. Make sure you know what is behind you and be safe

I don't think he's on this Rev Forum, but "Alloyjared" had gotten some really great shots from the Festival...

Jared Hayworth is a great addition to any kiting activity, his entire family in fact! Set-up (without the attitude!), he hustles all day long doing whatever is needed,..... photos, lessons, sherpa duties, plans the competitions for the Eastern League as the Commissioner.
For the Air & Space Museum indoor gig he brings their big ole flat screen TV (off of the wall and drives 8 hours), so we have a monitor for video playbacks in the lobby. He doesn't want to be involved with the cliques or politics, just sharing the joy. I include him as a dear friend.
my lights are due today, Fedex says!
