Huh...that's exactly what it is! Difference in price for the box seems like a lot? $37 part for $80 + shipping?
For me, I think the most important thing is to see it from below. The sideways wash of these lights at night appears to be enough for another aircraft to see it if they're on the same level...I'm not all that concerned about aircraft substantially above my drone...I'd say that's my responsibility to see and not climb into them.I think I will mount mine on the top back. Don't know if it would have any effect on the camera if it was on the bottom or not as far as flashing while recording. I have seen reviews that said it did not bother the camera but think mine will still go on the top back. I don't fly so high that I wouldn't see it. My first strobe so it's a test for me as well.
I was under the impression that it could not be used with a MA. Perhaps that's the reason? I have an MPP and it's "supposed" to be mountable from underneath.
The FlyHighUSA site that sells the ACS-30 (which is apparently the ARC II in a box) explicitly says,Could be, though their Amazon page seems to indicate that it's for the Air. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073PMGLXR/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I mean, I could always stick it on top, but that wold kind of defeat the purpose. The thing is bright as ****, though.
Most of the light is covered in a thin, clear plastic. The plastic is open on the ends, so it's definitely not waterproof. I wouldn't recommend you fly with them in the rain (if that's where you're heading with this).Does it need "Waterproofing"?
They are large and heavy, but you should be able to safely mount them with some type of strong Velcro (like 3M Dual Lock). Or you could use one of my Mavic Pro Firehouse ARC mounts.Do you know if the ARC Light can be mounted without a box and still last?
