1100 + METERS BEAMSHOT WITH COURUI ! ! !

Unfortunately currently do not own a good camera, pictures are taken with a cheap Olympus VR 340, and I bet it would look 5 times better that I took pictures with some better camera. weather conditions were not ideal, because of the low cloud cover and weak drizzle. Also street lighting reduces the effective range of a flashlight.

This is a well known resistor removed mode , I am using 20 AWG silicone wires,all springs are bridged,and my own made
copper pill is inside. Dedomed XM-L2 U3 1A on 20mm Noctigon with fully charged 3 x Panasonic 18650PF 2900mAh is pushed to 5 Amps. Also there is no moon mode like other members did have. Main reason this is happening because -(minus ) wire is touching
something it should not !!

Here are some photos …
Enjoy ….

Copper pill

OLD vs NEW

Tail wires bridged

And the actual flashlight finished ………



Control shot daylight, old and closed Hotel Jugoslavia is in a far distance

10 x ZOOM

And Google Earth say 1100 + meters

This is the closest building,and to the roof there is 120 meters

Some shot in cloudy sky

120 meter shot

Night shoot control

Same with light on

10 x zoomed complete darkness

10 X ZOOM AND 1100 METER SHOT , YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THE ROOMS ON HOTEL

THIS IS THE GREAT AND EASY TO BUILD THROWER, AND IF YOU WANT SOMETHING LIKE THIS, BEST PRICE IS AT GEARBEST.
FOR COPPER PILL YOU CAN CONTACT ME ON PM.
HOPE YOU LIKE IT !

I gotta get me one of these. Why didn’t you use an XP-L rather than an XM-L?

I dont think there would be much improvement with XP-L, and its much harder to focus, XM-L2 U3 bin is bright enough for me.
But why not give it a try !!

Can you explain why you have bridged the tail wires and what have you done with the solder and wire over the 2 screws?
Have you still added braid/wire to the springs?

Thanks for the info.

Well the screws are very poor quality so I have inserted peace of same wire used for springs into the screw holes,tighten them down and put some solder over the top. Every contact on the tail is bridged and now reacts as a solid body. I did this to the driver
also for the better contact with the head….. 8)
