Good equipment. Upgraded the wingtip strobes on my experimental - was using the Anti-Collision Strobe 45W 1350LM, part number 11-12424. Moved those to the tail. These are maybe three or four times brighter to the eye, in the hangar, but I dont have hard numbers to back that up. Solid units. You will need #4 flat-head screws to mount these. The mounting screw heads are directly under the cover gasket so you need to get a flush fit on the screw heads. Otherwise, straightforward to install. Nice to be able to sync the wingtips. The position red/green lights are good and bright. Definitely recommended.
Not so expensive, efficient, easy to install, perfect
Per the manufacturer, there is not much difference between the Microburst II and III. We have added a spec sheet to the "Documents" tab on this web page for reference.
Per the manufacturer, these do not come with connectors or wiring. They have flying leads and would require connectors and cable.
This kit is sold as a pair. Includes one for each side.
Per the supplier: If an experimental aircraft is going to fly at night they need to meet the same requirements as a certified aircraft. With this being said the Micro Burst would not be approved. They need to look at the Whelen ORION series for approved lighting.
The pulse feature draws 1.2 amps. The correct wiring size will depend on the length of the wire. Please consult the wiring diagram in the AC43.13-1B.
No, the Microburst II does not have an integral rear facing white nav light. For that feature, you would need the Microburst III series. That is available as our part number 11-08473.
Yes, this will work with 12 Volts DC.
These are not FAA Approved for use in certified aircraft. They are intended for experimental and homebuilt applications only. We cannot recommend them for use in a Piper production aircraft.
No, the Microburst units are smaller.
