Installed these on my PA-38 over a year ago and have had zero problems with them. Very nice not having to replace bulbs anymore. Liked them so much I ordered the same ones for my PA-28

I replaced my Whelen A650 strobes and position lights with the Orion 650 on my C182M, thinking that the footprint for mounting the lights would be identical â unfortunately it was not even close since there are many variations of wing-tips for Cessnas. Whelen support was no help and had no suggestions for making the lights fit. My mechanic researched the problem and found Aveoflash fairings which solved the mounting problem perfectly strange that a competitor has to solve Whelens problems. I am happy with the lights and the wiring was simple.

The Orion 650 wing tip lights are wonderful, but installation wasnt easy. It took me working with an AP/IA to complete the installation. Pulling the new wing tip wires took us half a day. The left wing of my 65 Mooney was the worst, because there were already 3 wires (stall warning, pitot heat and tip light) and two new wires for strobe and sync made things tight to pull. My AP/IA let me do some of the install and he inspected it all. He filled out a Form 337 and signed off the log book. I paid him for a day of his time. Whelen factory service helped me with the proper wire size, and I put in a new Klixon switch/breaker to operate the strobes only. The strobes are BRIGHT and taxiing is easy with no other planes on the ground to blind. The LED strobes light up the edges of the taxiway. Even the LED posi! tion lights are brighter than the old bulbs.

I installed the Orion 650 on my 1962 Mooney M20C and really love how they work and the brightness is excellent and I feel extra safe now flying as I know I am seen in the air. They were very easy to install and I feel the safety by having them on my Mooney out weights the price of buying them. I total feel it was a great safety feature added to my plane.

Bought the Whelen Orion 650 for added safety for my Mooney M20C. They are very easy to install and is one up grade I am so glad I did. Going at 165 mph is nice to know other planes out there see you. The Mooney just looks more complete in the air. I really do have a better feel about safety now. and I really like the looks of them, To me well worth the money.

Q&A

Q: Can you control the strobe separate from the position lights?

You can. Per the installation manual, there are 4 wires; you can wire the Flashing and Position lights to separate switches. The other 2 wires are ground.

Q: I have 2 wires going to the nav lights on my cessna-172m. Can I wire the strobe and nav together and use the existing navswitch to run both nav and strobe continuously so I don't have to run 2 more wires and another switch? aircraft is VFR only. Thank You. RE: Orion 650

Per the supplier: I would not recommend this setup but it can be used that way. It is recommended that they use two separate power wires so they can operate the functions independently.

Q: Are these legal for installation on a certified aircraft?

Yes, the Whelen Orion 650 series is FAA TSO approved for installation in certified aircraft.

Q: Does the Orion 650 require a tail position light?

Per Whelen, the Orion 650 does not require the aircraft to have a tail light, but can if they choose. The unit has LED's on the back half of the unit to provide 180 degrees of strobe when mounted on the wing tip.

Q: Does Whelen FAA Approval for installing the ORION 650 series on Certified Aircraft?

Yes, the Whelen Orion 650 series is FAA TSO approved for installation in certified aircraft.

Q: Does the Whelen Orion 650 Series Lighting have a Rear Position White Light separate from the strobe for use on aircraft that have no rear position light mounted on the tail?

No, this light does not have the rear position light. Take a look at P/N# 11-11365 or in other words the Orion 600 Series. This light would have the rear position light.

Q: I currently have nav/whelen strobe wingtip lights on my 206. Can I use the wires from the strobe (after removing the power supply) for the strobe on the Orion 650 and the wires for the nav for the nav? In other words, will I have to run new wires?

You can use the existing wiring, the Orions just bypass the strobe power supply. No need to run new wiring.

Q: Are the Orion 650 series wingtip lights shielded and is there enough wire supplied to run the length of a wing or do I need to purchase wire separately

Shielded wire is not included and must be ordered separately.

Q: Can you program the Whelen Orion 650 strobes or do they just flash on / off?

On / Off only.

Q: Do the Whelen Orion 650 series LED lights fit the same as the Whelen A650-PG-PR? Any modifications needed other than wiring to fit as a replacement - screw locations the same?

Yes, the Whelen Orion 650 series LED lighting replaces the A650 lights. The screw locations and mounting dimensions are the exact same. These LEDs do not require a power supply whereas the old A650s did, so you can remove that from the aircraft and connect the new lights directly to ship's power.
