    Oh...my...god.

    After years of us waiting for someone to step up to the plate, Tim did a fantastic job on these pieces! Mine came in today, too!

    I haven't painted my jet pack and I want to install the beacon!
    Again, Tim, thanks!

    Check out post number 52 in this thread.
    Wire up your LED and drop it throught the "nut" from the top. Put the LED up inside of the beacon to the desired height, then run the wires to your switch or power source of choice .

    I have had some PMs about how these mount.
    The stabilizer mounts by simply bolting it on.
    The beacon has a "Hollow bolt" so to speak. First, drill your hole in your jet pack, freaky, I know. Then drop your wires in from the top and run your LED up into the beacon and turn it down snug with you hand.
    Thats it .

    One pic is with the flash. The other one I had to turn it off because the LED would not show up.

    You could do it however you want but thats how I'm gonna do it.
    (LED and wires not included)

    -Tim-
    For double brightness I will be doing this with several leds. I will post pics when I wire it.

    Got them Friday.

    Painted the beacon, and had to do some minor surgery on the BM pack to make it fit.

    You may want to extend the "nut" for the beacon about 1/2" more for the slightly thicker packs.

    I had to cut into the pack to allow enough thread up to connect it. Also, in the BM pack, he has metal rings embedded there, so that had to be chopped up a bit to allow for the width.

    Wasn't too bad though.

    End product came out pretty good.

    will have to post a pic tonight.

    thanks!

    i didn't paint mine, but i did slap it on my jet pack (ruffkintoys fiberglass), and it worked out great.

    i'm going to unscrew it, paint it, and put the LED in it some time soon.
