    That's because it doesn't exist (yet). Serge is putting all his resources to finishing up the run of v3 FL-33 lights. Once those are done he will (at some point) start working on the FB1.

    I haven't heard anything regarding a release date, but I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't happen until early 2014.
    Here is a list of my lights.

    Ok thanks dimorgan, it looks like the greatest flood light of all time i'll keep checking up on it. It looks like it will completely dominate the Nitecore TM26

    BTW, the website isn't too terribly clear but it states something like a maximum 2000 lumen output for an FL33 T70 configuration (battery tube for 1x18650 or 2x18350). I'm assuming that this 2000 lumen output is only possible with 2x18350? What's the max lumens off a single 18650? How long will it maintain that output and is it regulated or declining?

    In case of doubt, Ask Serge. He's great with responses even if it takes a couple of days. (Thinking back an taking time diference into consideration, I do believe he actually responded to me in the equivalent of 24 hours)

    I've no idea how long this link will stay here, anyway, insider files should answer your question.

    Hello Quazzle, I figured I'd pop back in after a couple months to ask if there was any update on the FB1 Fatboy? Still a future project that is a long way off?

    I work on both projects in parallel so fb1 was never put on hold.
    I can't post links here but you can google it, I have all information on the web including task lists, statuses etc.
    FB1 is not on sale so I don't think it can be considered as an advertisement or commercial.
    Sorry if I'm wrong.
    No links anymore.

    I've dropped it a number of times. It does chip just a little, because of the soft Aluminum underneath. It's not bad at all, but it is still present. I believe the newer lights though have SS on the end pieces to help protect against that.

    hi, we don't fill it with Nitrogen now because most guys open the head to replace the optics/light engine.
    but if needed we can do that, should be clearly stated in the special instructions.
    please also note that if we use nitrogen the head is thread-locked so you will not be able to access the LE and the lens if this option selected.

    yes thanks, I confirm that since 2013 we make all end pieces from stainless steel (the tail cap, the head bezel, the lanyard ring/clip is present). in other words I kept aluminum only for those parts where it's absolutely critical for heat transfer (the radiator fins and the bat tube which is connected to the head)

    I just got one of these. It is the most compact version with the underwater head. Beautiful little light and it really puts out a lot of light!! Shipping was no problem - took about 3 weeks. Overall I am really impressed! It's smooth lines feel very nice to touch so I have been carrying it around and fiddling with it since I got it. Thanks Serge!

    Did you create one with the "configure tool" on the Lux-RC website? Somewhere I saw it would take several months for building/shipping.

    No. I bought one of the already made "special offers" on the website. It shipped within a day or two.

    Nice. Did you opt for the clip or do you just carry it loosely in your pocket?

    Instead of the "collar" with the clip, I got the one with the lanyard hole. Fits paracord perfectly. I must say, I am a titanium and Damascus freak and this little light has really won me over. The finish is quite nice. Got caught fiddling with it in a meeting today. Oops.

    yes, I still have not finished 371 light engine and many guys are waiting for it. On the other hand the items listed in "specials" are using 334 light engine and these flashlights are ready for shipping in 1-2 days.

    Thanks for the update. I look forward to owning one of these in the future.

    On a side note -

    I contacted the Lux-RC guys asking if the FL33 could be used for diving. Serge replied, and said that it depends on the pressure and the maximum diving depth. He explained that, while the FL-33 does not have pressure compensation like most professional diving lights, it is completely protected and tested to 100m. He also noted that if you dive 60m and below, the button may be pressed down.

    So, his general recommendation was that the FL-33 can be used for regular dives down to 50m.

    I'm an avid spear fisherman out here in Hawaii, and lately I've been doing a lot of night dives. I picked up a "proper" dive light and although it hasn't leaked, it's about ~300 lumens and has a "wide-angle" no hotspot beam, which isn't good for lighting up caverns or holes in the reef. The FL-33 with an XP-G2 triple is ~1,000 lumens and looks to have a cleaner beam, so I would like to opt for one of those. Just have to save up a bit more

    Just received the light. The 219b's are amazing for colour rendition. The light came well packaged and the attention to detail is something else.
