This wiki has been updated 2 times since it was first published in June of 2019. There are both practical and decorative reasons for attaching lights to your quadcopter. Some may need to satisfy government regulations, such as those of the Federal Aviation Administration that require an anti-collision strobe when flying at night, while others may simply want to create cool-looking, long-exposure photos. Whatever your reason, our list likely has a model that suits your needs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

July 08, 2019:

Those who have an FAA remote pilots license need to affix an anti-collision light to their drone in order to comply with Part 107 for civil twilight flying. If that's the case, then you need to choose a model whose light can be seen at least 3 miles away to lawfully fly at night. Selections such as the DS-30 LED and Strobon Red and Green Strobe satisfy that requirement. Because these lights are also typically the brightest, we tended to rank them higher up than wimpier models.

Another thing to look out for is what power source the light uses. Some can be hooked up to your drone's main battery while others, like the Firehouse Technology Arc Blue and Viloga Navigation Lights, are equipped with a battery.
