    Excellent resource, thanks. Looks like I've got a lot of reading to do!

    I found the A2 tune up thread useful as well. I didn't see that on your list.

    Atomic Chicken, I never really plannedon getting an A2 I was happy with 60 lumens out of my HDS. and now with all this new talk about it because of your Aviatrix I'm ordering one tomorrow. Sure fire should donate some of there profits to you, JS, CPF and everyone else convinceing all of us who dont have one to go out and by it. And yes I'll probably be ordering an Aviatrix in the next few weeks. Now lets hope my wallet can recover before the new HDS comes out
    Well Thanks for the advice
    I need to find a cheaper hobby

    Thanks AC! I did a list for the USL threads, so I know how much work it takes to pull all of the threads together. Bravo!

    Now we just have to wait until CPF gets back to it's normal address for the links to work, hopefully in a couple of days.

    I have a question for Atomic_Chicken: Say I have this friend for whom I bought a used A2, and he likes your Aviatrix idea, but he'd like to have a ring with red, blue, and green LEDs, one of which would be on in the first stage, and all three of which would be on in the second stage, providing white light with more rendition across the specturm than a normal white LED. How well would this work? Oh great A2 master, work your magic!
