Default Re: Gadgetry

One of my friends in the model flying club recently bought along a flashlight to the flying field that was so powerful it could be used to set fire to paper or other flammable materials when they were held really close to it. No need to use a magnifying glass like you do with the sun - just crumple up some paper and hold it in front of the torch (and be careful to keep your skin out of the beam).

Interesting gimmick and obviously it is also a super-powerful light, though he couldn't really demonstrate that to us as the sun was shining.

I looked them up on-line but they cost way too much for my taste. :spend:
