LED Anti Collision Beacon

It's not secret that LED's generally don't give much light out the sides. You only get nice bright light out of the end.

So I tried a little experiment. I took a piece of Scotch Brite and scuffed the outer diameter leaving the end un-touched. Then I put a dab of white paint on the end to reflect more light back into the plastic.

Makes the whole thing glow red a lot more.

With some more experimenting I should be able to make it even better.

The picture doesn't do justice to what it actually looks like. It is a nice red color.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.
