FoxFury Lighting Solutions is expanding its Rugo™ lighting series to now include four total lights. This expansion is meant to maximize the potential of the Rugo™ so users can choose the best options to suit their needs. The Rugo™ lights are ideal on-the-go lighting tools for drone pilots, photographers, and videographers.
Rugo™ lights are comprised of two elements: a light head and a Power Pack. There are two versions of each part. The standard light head has 700 lumens, a 70 CRI rating, and a maximum operational beam distance of up to 100 ft (30 m). The High CRI Light Head has 620 lumens, a 92 CRI rating, and a maximum operational beam distance of up to 50 ft (15 m).
The Quick Swap® Power Pack has four modes: dim, low, medium, and high. The Quick Swap™ Power Pack with Strobe also has four modes, but they are slightly different: low, medium, high, and strobe. The strobe mode meets global requirements for UAV night flight and anti-collision lighting, including FAR 107.29. Both Power Packs last up to 6.75 hours and recharge in 2.5 hours via USB. Additional Power Packs are available as separate accessories to extend usage time.

FoxFury also has Rugo™ Drone Light Systems available for DJI Phantom 4 and Phantom 4 Pro, DJI Inspire and Matrice, and Yuneec H520 and Typhoon H drones. The R1S systems include two (2) R1S lights and a set of drone mounts. These systems are designed for search and rescue or general utility purposes. The RCS systems include two (2) RCS lights and a set of drone mounts. These systems are designed for drone photography and videography.
The Rugo™ can also be used as an accent light or handheld utility light. Units can be stacked to form light rings or light strands. Thumbscrews, a ¼”-20 mount, cold shoe mount, and standard mount are included with all units. These allow the Rugo™ to mount to most action cameras, DSLRs, and tripods.
The Rugo™ has a rugged built-to-last design. The lights are impact resistant and waterproof. The R1 and RC are submersible up to 10 ft (3 m), and the R1S and RCS are submersible up to 60 ft (20 m). The lights also meet NFPA fire resistant requirements and can be decontaminated after use.
“The Rugo™ has lived up to its name as the rugged go anywhere light. Given the unique needs of drone pilots, photographers, and videographers, we’ve expanded the Rugo™ product line to offer more options so they can select the light that best fits their custom needs and works best with their workflow,” said Antonio Cugini, Director Marketing at FoxFury Lighting Solutions.
