LED Wingtip and Tail Lighting for Experimental and Light Sport Aircraft LEDs are lightweight, low current and incredibly bright, vibration and moisture resistant... the ideal lighting technology for experimental and LSA aircraft.
Installed, tested. Not yet flown though. Very well made. Work as advertised. Would be nice to have an L and R on the wingtip lights. Wasnt evident. Last, for this kind of money, and knowing how inexpensive 4-40 screws are and being relatively unavailable at normal fastener outlets, youd think Whelen would have included them.

Q: What is the difference between microburst II and III?
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.
Q: Does this Whelen Microburst II Kit have FAA / TSO Approval?
The Microburst series does NOT have TSO approval. If you want a certified product then you will need to look at the ORION series. We offer it on our website, keyword search "Whelen Orion" to locate them.
Q: I require a set of lights for my LSA J160 currently being finished off. Will this Microburst II kit run on a 12 volt system?
Yes, this will work fine on 12 volts.
Q: Which power supply is needed to drive these three lights in Whelen Microburst II kit?
These are LED units and do not require a power supply. They are installed using the aircraft power.
Q: What type control unit do they use to synchronize these units?
For whelen Microburst II (11-08475) a yellow wire is included which when connected will cause the lights to sync.
Q: What exactly does the statement Note: Product does not meet the requirements of 91.205 (c), required for night flight. ?
Does this mean that if I install these lights on my experimental homebuilt airplane that I still could not legally fly at night? If so, what purpose do these lights serve?
The Microburst series is for Daytime VFR only and they are not certified for night flight. If they want a product which will make them legal for night flight then they will need to look at the ORION series assemblies. The assemblies would be OR6501GE / OR6501RE / OR5001V.
