I finished putting lights on the quadcopter. Image album!

This involved making little feet to raise the whole thing up 30 mm, and making a little power supply board for them (since they want 12 volts and the batteries might provide anywhere from 11 to 14, depending on battery size). It means I can fly the copter at night, because I can see it. Cassie thinks it looks like a UFO and she's totally right. I'll have to get her to take a video of it next time.

The little yard-space in front of my apartment is big enough to hover in, although not as roomy as the field behind my office. I plan to fly there plenty. :)

Next step is making the lights controllable with a switch on the radio. I'm pretty sure I know how to do that, although the last time I thought that, on Sunday, I started a small fire.
