    Comments about Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit:

    Got this kit around August 2013 and now in Nov 2016 it's pretty beat up from our medium to heavy usage at a major university production department. The lights are mostly plastic and can't stand up to much. Ours have broken at the adapter inputs. The ball head adapters supplied are terrible and we replaced them with something better.The cables that you feed the power to the heads with is like a two part laptop power adapter and the skinny DC cables are getting intermittent. The kit stands have lasted pretty well but I usually use more heavy duty Arri kit stands anyway.The one thing that has lasted the best is - THE CASE!

    Comments about Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit:

    I got this kit to travel around with for my job. When I get it from luggage pickup, the screws in the stands were rattled loose. This happened on several occasions, and some of the screw handles don't tighten down too good. Other than the stands, these are great lights to work with.

      This kit is great for interviews and mobile lighting situations. Cool LED lights give me a great deal of flexibility in setting up my shots wherever I am. It is compact and portable, and makes it easy to produce high quality video with excellent lighting wherever I am in the world.

      Great lights, but ball heads are junk

          Comments about Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit:

          I love the lights and stands and the pelican case is top notch. The only real downside is the ball heads that connect the lights to the tripod stands. They are absolute junk. One was broken before I used it. I replaced them with the Velo ball heads listed in the accessories. Now the kit feels right and gives me the functionality they should have had from the beginning. You should also know that the tripod stands are a bit unstable and need sandbags. I plan to order them next.

              Comments about Litepanels Sola ENG Flight Kit:

              The Sola kit is very compact. We've done one trip and the packaged worked great. We were using it mostly on interior locations. Easy to set up and operate and we had no issues. We'll have to see if the lights put out enough heat for other shoots.
