Aircraft Anti-Collision Strobe Light, 45w, 1350 LM CREE LEDs
Weight: 0.28 oz (8 g)
Installation: 1- Clean surfaces with alcohol. 2- Apply adhesive tape 3- Let stand for 24 hours.
These lights work well and simple to install Recommend them if youre on a budget.
Had some wiring issues (red power wire breakage), but prompt warranty replacement and excellent after sales help from Chris Winter (builder). Light is very bright, aerodynamic. Velcro works well but also recommend silicon sealer around unit after installation.
I received my mini strobes and alligator clipped them to a battery and tested them by walking back about 200ft in daylight to see how bright they are. They are dfinitely not as bright as certified wingtip strobes and will not be very visible at a 1/4 mile or more BUT!! FOR THE MONEY adn power/brightness vs current draw... there is no other strobe that can compare! I am going to use them on my Searey Amphib facing forward on the struts so BOATS can see me better when approaching for water landings. I plan on buying two more so there are two on each side. this will create a random flash pattern which will catch the eyes better AND increase the size and brightness of the strobes when viewed at a distance. I already have Aveo wingtip LED strobe/nav lights and these are almost as bright for far less money. I would recommend that you put as many as you can on instead of just one.. at this price you can afford about four for what youd pay for one other strobe. Although the velcro is a quick mount. I would never trust it in the airstream.. I recommend silicone RTV, it is flexible and will NOT let go, BUT can easily be peeled free when you need to remove a unit. I used it for years in wet, vibrating, flexing locations and it works like a charm every time.. you can get it at the auto or hardware store. I will raise my rating to 5 stars when they are mounted and functioning if they work as well as I think they will!
These lights are great! I had a problem with one with the small red power wire breaking off the strobe itself. The only reasons I gave this product a 4 stars instead of 5 was of a poor response by the manufacturer concerning getting a warranty replacement.
These are great little anti-collision lights. I bought two of them for my Kolb Firestar ultralight. Very bright, light weight, easy to install, very low power usage. I would highly recommend this unit.
These position lights work great,easy to install,plug and play.
Fantastic little unit, great attention getter. Looks kinda ugly sitting on the Velcro, but Id rather be ugly and be seen, than ....
Great product, Seller needs better documentation, over all I love the little thing
These units are light and velcro to the fibreglass wingtips on my Challenger ultralight. Way less expensive and way lower current draw than conventional nav lights.
It does not, It will work with any DC source that is 10-15VDC.
This is not an FAA/PMA approved unit and should be installed where the builder feels would work best as an anti-collision strobe.
The transparent cover is included.
This is not an FAA/PMA approved unit and is designed for experimental aircraft.
These anti-collision lights are timed independently. Sometimes they will synchronize, but only by chance. They are one color per light, that flash together.
The effective viewing angle on the horizontal plane is 120 degrees off vertical with reference to the PCB. The flash rate is 25ms (40/s).
Per the supplier: We have not done any engineering measurements of that nature, since the FAA only wants to know the light output in candlepower or lumens (1350 lumens). Only the coast guard does those type of measurements.
The red LEDs have 1300 lumens. Brightness is slightly less than the white.
Each assembly is one color, red, green, or white, and flash only.
The unit is 2.37" long, 1.20" wide, and .39" tall.
