Is this the same as taking a picture of the disc with your camera? I tried it on all my glow discs (I used my digital camera, so I don't know if that makes a difference) and it had no effect whatsoever... :?

the old battery opp flash is the best, I also have a black light that runs on AA batteries that works really well.

Black light is very effective as well as convenient.

I used to use mega bright spotlights. But they have two downsides A. it's hard to charge your discs without temporarily blinding yourself and B. They're big and bulky.

Smaller black lights are much easier to carry in your pocket , they enable the disc to hold a great charge and they help to preserve your night vision.

I bet the little super bright led flashlights would work pretty good, and they are real easy on batteries. I havent gotten to play a night game yet :cry: but i have a glow z mrv that glows like a mofo.

It's 1/10 scale I believe. Maybe 1/8th scale.

I used to race electric R/C Cars (Electric still has r/c speed record over gas :P), offroad and onroad and my dad ended up starting his own battery matching business. Worked in a hobby shop for 4 months between highschool and college. A guy I started out with is now good enough that he's been beating Losi/Associated/X-ray sponsored drivers lately onroad and is probably going to be picked up soon by one of them. Hell, I still have my Losi XXX-4 4wd buggy that in total has over $1300 dropped into it. Electronics are expensive...

back on topic... I scored these babies at the dollar store today and i think they're going to work for me damn well. Supposed to be for cell phones but it seems to do a mighty fine job for $1. Image Image

Superq, where did you find your hand held blacklight?
