A great replacement for the old Grimes rotating beacon.
Great product! Easy to install
Very bright, low power draw. Easy install
Although not quite a drop in replacement for the 206 (needing to remove the vertical cap, drill holes, and very minor wiring), it is nevertheless a very easy installation. But the best part is how much brighter it is even in daylight. The light can now be seen much further away and is more eye catching than the old oem beacon. Well worth the price - especially in busy airport environments.
Whelen sales support recommended this as the drop-in replacement for my Piper Archer II. I fly in and around busy Bravo airspace and wanted to be extra visible to other aircraft. This beacon exceeded all expectations from size, weight, fit, function, visibility, and battery load. Furthermore, I have been able to clearly see the beacon from the ground (partner flying) from roughly a mile and a half away on a cloudless day. Clear night visibility is many miles. The only negative is that you have to turn it off along with strobes in the clouds on night IFR because of the intensity. Highly recommended if you want ultimate visibility and/or to remove load from your 14V electrical system as I did.
Worked great until I had a Garmin G5 DG installed and this light put out such high Electro Magnetic Interference that the avionics shop could not find a spot in the fuselage (could not put it in the wing due to design) to put the magnetometer. We went back and forth with Whelen and eventually found that their Orion360 worked and swapped them.

Per the manufacturer: the 7108051 is the correct part for your 182 if no modifications have been made to your aircraft.
Powered with aircraft power, no separate power supply required.
The 7108014 has 12" wire attached to it for installation, and 7108018 has an MS3102R10SL-3P connector wired to the unit for installation. Order 7108018 only if you already have this MS connector on your aircraft.
Per Whelen, yes part # 11-09909 would work in a Piper Cherokee.
Part number 11-09909 does have a 3-3/4" adapter with the unit.
Whelen part # 01-0771080-05 is our part # 11-07689.
Per Whelen: That model year Cessna (if it is original) has the smaller fin cap which would accommodate the part# 11-07686 product.
It will come with a length wire and connector as shown in the Installation PDF.
Yes, these are the same.
The 01-0771080-00 has a certification of TSO-C96a Class I. The Class I means that this is certified to 150 Effective Candle Power output.
