Thumbs up Rigid Industries LED pix

Here's a picture of the Rigid Industries LED landing lights. The flood in on the picture's right and the spot is on the left. Excellent product. Well made and BRIGHT and only 2 amp draw. No noise. Also made in the USA. Highly recommended.

Default I tried to find some and ended up

making my own replacements ----- used the old lense to make a wood shape and then used a heat gun to bend plexi around the wood form (I tried Lexan but tougher to work with)-- interesting exercise ---- not professional quality, but no one seems to notice.

Ended up replacing the Olds headlights with Whelen PAR 46 LEDs.

Default FlyLeds: a good option.

If going to Oshkosh, have a look into the Landing Lights from FlyLeds....

4 spot, very bright and drop in replacement for HIDs in the Duckworks leading edge light kit. Fully Wigwagable..... (is that a word?? :-) )

In addition, designed and developed specifically for the experimental community.

Extremely good price and outstanding service and support. Im a fan if you haven't noticed....

Default Spot of Flood?

So does the flood or spot work better on a night landing. I have a Rigid SR-Q spot (mounted vertically) on my right gear leg, and am thinking of adding another spot or a flood on the left gear leg. Which do you recommend?

I have one of each. Typically use both on for any nightime flights. Even leave them on anytime below 10k'. No problems whatsoever.

If I ever catch your Son at the airport, I'll check them out. I watched his video again but really couldn't see the landing lights on the runway. Since I already have a SR-Q spot on the right gear leg, I guess I should put a flood on the left gear leg. Since they have connectors, I could always switch locations if I needed to. As I said earlier, I really wish they were in the wing leading edges so I could leave them on like you do. A wig-wag setup would be nice, too.
