We tested FMA Hell-star 6 beacon. First, we show what modes this IR / Red beacon supports and then tested on field with Gen2+ night vision device and compared to V-light IR beacon.

Here are our findings:


  • Looks good
  • Convenient to use
  • Very strong RED light
  • Replaceable battery (CR123)


  • IR light is too bright
  • Red light does not blink
  • Expensive

CONCLUSION: Ok to buy, but not the best IR beacon out there!

SCORE: 3/5
