This flying 1,000 watt spotlight drone creates eerie, beautiful footage

God bless YouTubers and their insatiable desire for messing around with electronics and drones. The latest fruits of their collective labor comes from YouTube channel rctestflight, which managed to strap a 1,000 watt LED light bar to the underside of a Freefly Alta octocopter. The resulting device is basically a flying spotlight, capable of flooding any area with a bright, white light. In the first two minutes of the video above rctestlight explains the set up, but it’s the rest of it that’s really worth watching, showing off the various shots the drone can produce. I think my favorite is the one at around 2:20, illuminating a metal-framed bridge: But as serene and eerie as this footage seems, it’s worth remembering that this is a pretty heavy-duty drone, meaning it’s very noisy. The behind-the-scenes video gives a more honest impression of what it’s actually like to use the craft, which apparently involves a lot of shouting (“Higher! Higher!”) and a buzzing sound like that of a million extremely angry bees. Worth it for those shots though.

Today’s BR30 LED floodlight bulbs are better and more affordable than ever before. Here are the best ones. Plenty of homes keep things lit using overhead BR30 (bulging reflector) floodlights in recessed lighting setups. If you’re looking to upgrade wide beam light bulbs like those, you’ll almost certainly want to go with an LED over a fluorescent model or incandescent bulbs. In your local lighting aisle, you’ll find plenty of picks that are bright, dimmable, efficient and as affordable as ever — and with most promising a life span that lasts years or even decades, it’ll be a long while before you have to break out the ladder again. So which of these new options is the right one for you? Glad you asked ,because I’ve got plenty of suggestions for the best LED floodlight. After countless hours spent testing floodlights in CNET’s lighting lab, the Cree 65W Replacement Floodlight LED emerged as our Editors’ Choice for the category. It’s brighter than advertised (and super bright compared with most of the competition), it’s energy efficient enough to pay for itself in energy savings within a year and it’ll work wi...
