The light is a combined unit, easy installation, but larger than i was expecting for a light sport plane. I guess reading the description would have helped. The only concern is the factory mounting of the tang with 2 small screws and vibration over time

I replaced my aged FS 4400 with this nice inexpensive easily installed unit. It works beautifully and is extremely bright.

It is possible to short the bulb out so it stops working?

Had to replace the fist one that I had like this because it burnt out. Delivery was speedy considering the Post Office was holding rotating strike job action. We will see how this one lasts when I hook it up in the spring.

Any product eligibility information provided here is based on general application guides and we recommend always referring to your specific aircraft parts manual, the parts manufacturer or consulting with a qualified mechanic.

Q: If I install a red lens, can this strobe be used as a rotating beacon on an experimental aircraft? I need a small diameter beacon to place on top of the vertical stabilizer. Thank you

Per the supplier: No, this is a flashing beacon. It does not have the mechanism to rotate the light source.

Q: What are dimensions of the box that this Skysports strobe lamp is packaged in?

This product is packaged in a 4-1/4 inch square box.

Q: Is this an LED? How hot does it get?

11-07769 uses Xenon flash tubes rather than LEDs. Since during operation it is not constantly on, it does not get hot at all.

Q: Does this meet FAR requirements for an anti collision beacon? I intend to install it on a experimental aircraft

Meets FAR 103 for Ultralight aircraft, Day VFR flying.

Q: Will this work with my Key west voltage regulator ?

Per the manufacturer: As long as it is wired to 12v it will work. We have no data on the Key west regulator integration.
