Installed on my C150L. Had to drill out and countersink two hold down screws on mounting plate so beacon glass cover hold down ring would mount flush to mounting plate. Otherwise a simple install. Just have to disconnect Cessna flasher in tail of plane and splice the power wire from switch to beacon to bypass original flasher. Just hard to justify $900 for this part but like all airplane parts...you want to play you really have to pay! Does not load up my alt like the original flasher, so all seems good so far.

Installed on 1969 C-150J without the need for any crazy airframe modifications. Removed old flasher and beacon, minor wire work, unit installed and ops check complete. We did complete a 337 as per the Manufactures installation instructions. No bleed over in headset as last unit did. The picture is deceiving as the lens is not tinted at the top, clear all around. Recommend Spruce post an actual photo of the unit to clear that up.

Installed easily and gives brilliant light. It eliminated the audio noise we were getting in our headsets from the old beacon. We did not have to fill out a 337 for the 182q. Only downside, very expensive.

Easily installed in existing mounting area with minor modification to the existing wires. Very bright and should last longer than the aircraft.
