    I'm told that my front LED strobe might be mounted right on it.

    Anyone have a definitive answer?

    Don't know the answer but have you had any compass errors or calibration problems?

    Haven't flown it since placing the LED there. Wasn't there a FULL teardown someone did where they identified the parts?

    From images I have seen I think it is located in the nose cone.

    Ah, gotcha. It's not tight up against the nose cone, but it's a few inches away it appears.

    Thoughts on mounting the LED strobe there? Shouldn't matter / super bad idea / test it and see?

    Roger that. Worst case, I have to relocate but 3M dual lock is easy to remove. But that is a sweet spot for a light.
