Is it possible to fly using only a single 500W halogen flood light on a tripod stand or would you need more light than that?

60% of the time, it works every time!

A street light, about 1000W. I don't think 500W will work.

If you are ONLY hovering 4 feet off the ground yes.

I forget what size lamps the guys use for Redneck Night Flying but they use 3 floodlights pointed at the helicopter for all out 3D and it works very well.
Not my style but entertaining.

It will work but the bigger the light the further you can go

A 500W Flood will cover 9000 sq. ft. (30x30 yds.) But, you need to be at the right height to use it.

I could get 2 500W flood lights but it would max out my geny!
