WHELEN LED LIGHT 01-0771685-01

Small, lightweight, easy installation and surprisingly bright. No noise, well designed. 1 amp v 12 amps for an incandescent. Whelen never disappoints.

Very easy to install. Not as bright as some led landing lights but I find it sufficient.

I bought two of these as replacements for an E-LSA. Since the design was different than the original lights I had to trim and modify the backplate to get these to fit. The light output is sufficient and the price is good. No noise in the radio during operation. There are more powerful Whelen LEDs but at double the cost

Disappointed with the very low intensity and will be looking for a replacement. The 24V version that was installed in my plane actually cut out below 26V (usually right after landing when going to engine idle!) and needed to be replaced by the manufacturer.
