Has anyone purchased these yet? If so, do you like them? Are they bright like some of their competitors? I guess the real question is ARE they worth its weight in gold?

Can't believe they do not list the weight

You know, I did not even pick up on that. But due to its size, what can they possibly weigh?

Could be anything.
Batteries is what would make a difference.
And the only example (brief look) to go on is that they were attached to a strong Mavic 2 Zoom.

I have a pair of Lume Cubes. They are well-made and do a good job. However, I don't think gold is that cheap...

Well, I'm supporting 2 Lume Cubes with rev.2 mounts. 1 STROBON Cree strobbie and the M2Z seems like at hover idle the motors are working their little hearts out. I hover idle @525-550 rpm without the Lume Cube Max and mounts and Strobon. With 2 LC max, lights and mounts and Strobon the hover idle is 625-650 rpm. A whole whopping 100+ rpm. I guess I'm after running the LC & Mounts and one very bright strobe. So if the Lume Cube strobes are brighter and lighter I may go that route. My god,, I'm thinking all this should I, or shouldn't I Is starting to make me nutso.... anyways, I will wait to see if anyone buys them for review.

I have Lume Cubes. Never heard them referred to as strobe anti-collision lights. Are these new or are you asking about the standard Lume Cubes that have mounts that attach to the arms of the bird? They offer a strobe option but I use them as a solid light to fly at night. They are substantially brighter than you will get out of any single LED strobe but do come with a weight and a few minutes shorter flight time.

Yup, brandy new... I just need a few people to buy them and do an honest review on them.. they come in white with a green and red lens to swap about.

I use Lume Cubes for "object illumination" for Emergency Services but for Anti-Collision there are much better (And lighter) options. The LCs are a bit heavy but they serve a good purpose.

We are using them on an aircraft much larger and more robust than a Mavic though so weight isn't as much of an issue.

I wasn’t aware of new ones. Do you have a link for them? I can’t find them online or the Lume Cube page directly.

At the bottom of the Lume Cube brochure it says "Check out more info at WWW.LUMECUBE.COM You said you tried that already?

On the Lume Cube site directly I only see the original cubes and the Lume Cube Air. The Air is a little smaller but no recommended on drones as they have an internal magnet that could affect the compass. Both options have diffusers to change the color. But I am not seeing a smaller strobe at all anywhere. Could be me, but not seeing anything else.

Didn’t at first. Did this time I looked at it. Will check it out further. Probably won’t purchase anytime soon but still interested in looking at them.

I bought one. And for a specific reason, the red lens cover. I live in an area with heavy military aviation training. USAF C-130s and US Army helos using Night Vision Goggles (I am a retired USAF C-130 pilot). Typically they fly at 300' AGL. While I am not flying anywhere near the bases, there are SR- routes all over the place. Fact about NVGs -- red lights are by far the most visible to people wearing NVGs.

Of course, I'll fly smart and avoid situations where there might be a conflict. But the few times I've flown at night, I could certainly see the potential.

They claim you can see them over 3 miles, do you agree with that claim?
