It’s bloody bright ! Flashes to resemble a flickering flame, then flashes SOS and repeats.

cheers

Cracking job Ross :thumbsup
I dont understand people buying pyro flares these days, Those LED flares do the job superbly.
No more storage or disposal issues, lasts for years and emits for a hell of a lot longer.
Jobby job :clappy

Because it's a big old WWworld out there :mrgreen:

I would not use Pyros if the MCA approved LED flares.
