I installed the lights and gave them a try in the hanger at night and the brightness was a bit more then the stock lights. The big test was when I turned on the communication radio. The squelch opened and lots of noise with the lights on full and less noise when flashing. The next day I flew the plane and tried them on and off several times and there was no noise at all. I left the power on after killing the engine and got out to see if the lights were flashing and yes there were on. No noise on the radio. I dont know why there was radio noise in the hanger with the engine not running. Maybe the WIFI next door and the lights had a frequency that created radio interference. I will try again in the hanger. Over all I am happy with the lights.

These are at least 50% brighter than the standard Grimes 14v Nav lights and they are a whiter light also. Durability to be determined. I think they rock. The strobe model is great too. It may give you anti collision light capability if your regular beacon burns out you can switch to the strobe mode on this model. Basically a back up anti collision capability. Beats the heck out of paying $1200 for a set of LED fixtures and they fit a standard Grimes Nav light fixture.

Everyone should keep in mind that flashing nav lights are NOT legal (homebuilt or cert.) The nav lights should be solid on steady.

A little more pricey than some led nav lights but very easy to install. The strobe function doesnt always work. Once they get warmed up I cant get the strobe function to work at all.

When in strobe mode, they create a high level of RF interference which the COM and NAV radios pick up. If you are talking to ATC, you will not be able to hear them when the LED is in strobe mode. The frequency that is most affected is above 120.00 MHz. It seems that at 119.9 and below, the interference is far less. Operationally, they are bright and easily fit in my standard NAV light mounts. The strobe mode is very effective.

Q: Are these PMA'd or TSO'd?

No, at this time these are not FAA Approved for use in certified aircraft. A 337 field approval would be necessary for installation.

Q: What other item do I need to install this strobe light in the wing tip?

Please note that this is just a replacement bulb, not a strobe system. It is a direct plug-n-play replacement for the original Grimes A-1512 bulb, and therefore no other item is required to replace it.

Q: You displayed the dimensions of the metal base. I need the diameter and length of the bulb. Do you have it?

Yes, the length is approximately 1-15/16 inches from bottom of base to tip of bulb. The diameter of the bulb is approximately 3/4".
