These look fantastic. Been out of stock for a while, gets really good reviews.

Specifications
Made from flame resistant paper it is 100% biodegradable
Fuelled for 15-20 minutes of flying time
Item Weight (kg): 0.075kg
Item Dimensions (cm): 38 x 60 cm
Description
Night Glow Flying Lanterns, also known as Sky Lanterns, will add an exciting new element to any event. Their mysterious glow can be seen climbing several miles in the sky for around 20 minutes. Flight ceases when all the fuel has been burnt and the flame subsides then as the air in the lantern cools it will gently float back to the ground for a safe landing. The Lanterns will fly to more than 1,000 meters in altitude, providing an amazing show for all ages.

Night Glow Flying Lanterns are safe, fun and spectacular for any outdoor event, great at Barbecues etc.

Fuelled for 15-20 minutes of flying time.

Look Pretty Awesome

... and awesomely pretty!

Thought dealxtreme might sell them, but can't see them on there.

Loads on eBay, works out cheaper if buying a few for a party.
#9
talk about money up in smoke!! knowing my luck it'd blow into someone's house and burn it down! :-)
#10
I've made these in the past and brought loads back from Thailand but...

I would question the legality of using these in the UK. Imagine one coming down in a dry field/forest or house.

I only mention this as I know how 'Sensitive' HUKD are about possible legal issues...

p.s. You get about 20 of these for 4 quid in Thailand
#11
I have asked Dealextreme to stock these but have heard nothing as yet from them.
#12
good price compared to ebay.

These are what are behind several high case UFO sighting's recently in the UK including one over a military base as a wedding reception let them off in a nearby pub!

Great bit of fun and if you have shaky phone footage, you might even get on your local news!!

In Ashford, Kent it was all over the local papers a few weeks ago. So many people had seen UFO's..... We saw them and could clearly see they were these lanterns, how funny!!! :whistling:

They would need to be quite large to get their weight to volume ratio to fall low enough for the heated content to cancel out their weight in relation to the surrounding air.

Perfect for using near airports, and dry summer fields/forrests.
#15
does this mean it is safe for us to come out from under our beds now?

#16
Can you tether these and have them floating above your garden? (I guess it would have to be a very still night).

I don't really like the idea of letting something like this loose and you only get to use it once.

Or are these strictly one use only?
#17
How can these possibly comply with UK litter laws?

They were in our local newspaper as people thought they were UFOs.
#18
I must point out that these can only be launched in near zero MPH wind. Even a stiff breeze will send them sideways rather than up and if they hit something they will come down. Then you have a 30 minute burning wick on the ground/garage roof etc. to think about.

I know, I've launched many and only once did it in a breeze - lesson learnt. On a still night though they are ace and were the highlight of our fireworks night a couple of years ago. If you are around London and want to buy 10 for £30 (with free collection fom Paddington area), try this place:

#19
Just to confirm - you only get one in a pack for this price. Some friends set around 10 of them off at their wedding reception - went down really well - perfectly still night for it. ..Next day numerous UFO sightings over Norton listed on Sheffield Forum - people must really want to believe.:?
#20
these things r cool, let loads off during last fireworks night, not so great when it rains, you never know release a load of these and your local airport radar may pick it up, causing panic, not that i would suggest any body to try this:whistling:
#21
These look awesome, surely even on a near 0 MPH wind evening you wouldn't expect them to land back in your garden though? (unless you have acres of land of course!)
#22
really expensive

i payed £15 for 10
#23
These look awesome. This looks like a hotdeal for 1 lantern but, not when buying 5 or more as they appear to be cheaper here

http://www.skycandle.co.uk/buy_now.html


Also noted these safety instructions from the above site which might be useful.

Safety Information,Essentially the sky candle is a safe product but like anything that includes a naked flame there are safety procedures that should be followed.

Make sure that you familiarize yourself fully with the instructions provided

Always keep water or fire extinguishers nearby

Children must not be left unattended with the lanterns.

Ensure that the wind is not stronger than 5 mph.

Use care around dry crops.

Ensure that trees are not in the flight path.

Do not release within five miles of an airport.

Launching:

1. Check wind direction
2. Ensure there are no obstacles in the way of the intended balloon flight.
3. Ensure lantern is fully open.


Just checking to ensure we are at least 5 miles from the nearest airport;-)

Given they work by making the heated air in the lantern sufficiently less dense to cause lift - then you would need to take the weight of the tether into the equation. You would also need at least two tethers as a single would make it lean to one side and the fireproofing of the paper will only last until a certain temperature is reached. However - it would give a very colourful display at this point. :whistling: :whistling: :whistling:

I think that answers your one use question too.

Were did you get them from??
#28
i saw these in Thailand, when they let off hundreds to celebrate there lent or something :?
look very good :)
#29
Something similar to these started a UFO alert over my town.

Go to Youtube and search for "UFO Bangor" and you will see the resulting TV coverage.

I think I will buy a few and sit back and await the results. :p
#30
Wouldn't worry too much about them coming down in a dry field etc.
Has anybody seen a field with less than 2 inches of water in it this summer?? ;-)
#31
I'm sure I remember making one of these back in the day when I was in the scouts... :oops:

Its just tissue paper glued in a bag format and then a heat source to fill the bag with hot air....

Anyone know what heat source these use as I haven't got a clue... the flame looks pretty big....

Would defo like to know where to get these cheaper is anyone would like to share!
#32
These are cool setting off at a late night beach party by the sea. H&R added. :thumbsup:
banned#33
Complete waste of money! who in their right mind would buy this just to set it off and never see it again?!


Ordered & Heat added!!
#34
Is this for one or so many in apack ????
#35
They have these on ebay 10 for 12.99+ 4.99 p&p
Thats £1.80 each.

They look great for bonfire night though, but what are the chances of there being less than 5mph wind.
#36
Gone up to £4.99, thus expired.
banned#37
back at £3.99 now...

thanks Amibees, had fun with mine...was a bit windy when I did it though so flew off pretty quick but damn they go up quick!
