These are both GoPro Hero2 builds. Both are plumbed using waterproof connectors and both can accept the white light arrays. The lights are 18w Cree Flood LED lights. To power those there are four 18650 batteries. One I am gonna use for day video only and the other one will be rigged with the lights. Ralph figured the hack out a while back and it is fairly easy to accomplish. I used the GoPro waterproof cases that they came with to lock or hold the GoPro's in place inside the build. The control board is Ralphs Safari with the mosfet backpacker. Ralph has the board programmed with 8 different options from day video, night video, 30 sec delays, 60 sec delays and even time lapse. I have the CDS going into a glass bottle at the bottom of the case and this is also where i placed my microphone for the GoPro. I gotta thank Chris (cameratrapcodger) for answering the many questions to get me interested in this build and also the help he provided. Chris has many videos taken with these GoPro's. Plus I gotta thank Joe Zanke as well for helping me with battery choices since I new nothing of 18650's. Also like to thank Ralph for his assistance and for figuring out the many hacks for us to utilize such as this one. Thanks guys! Your help does not go unnoticed.

Daryl, what is the projection angle of the beam from those little puppies? I'm seeing 30 degrees and 60 degrees on the internet. Yes, can't wait to see some results from those bad boys.

I don’t rightly know Gary. I got mine in Canada. The link is below. There is a difference some people have since found out between “spot” and “flood” lights. You want the FLOOD lights .. always learning in this little hobby.
