Default Flyleds on RV14

Has anyone installed the Flyleds strobe/position and the tail lights on the -14?

Regarding the wingtip lights, you can check out the forum for the RV-10 and see how they fit. The wing tips are the exact same tip as the RV-10, even down to the slightly different dimensions between the left and right side. (The RV-10's aren't perfectly mirror images, but are slightly off, and the RV-14's appear to have been made in the same mold.)

So go there and you'll find posts that show the FlyLED's in the RV-10.

The tail fairing is not the same, but my guess is that you should be able to make it fit. I had to do some slight mods to get the Whelen to fit, so worst case you have to put a little effort in.

Hi Kevin

As per the posts above, both planes use Vans part W-1015 for the wingtips.

Chris, they look good. Did you buy the pre-made kit or the DIY kit?

I bought the pre made setup, my soldering skills are not proven yet so I let Paul do it. After looking at the parts, boards, and instructions I think I would try the kit next time though. I also changed the wires from the Van's wing harness to a shielded cable. The tail light will fit the bottom rudder fairing without having to do any fiberglass work beyond cutting the center hole foe the light + mounting ring.
