Thanks Ashley, that helps a lot! Also, I didn't realize that Duckworks sold the mounting bracket by itself so thank you for pointing that out.

Yes indeed.

I commented in the video last year about the works kit, the instructions say "bring sunglasses" and I reckon welding goggles. These new lights bring that to reality.

Default RV-7

Will the -14 parts fit into a -7 wing, or are they a different rib shape?

Given the experimental nature of this hobby I would think that it's close enough for you to make it work, but please allow me to crowd source that answer!

Brains trust:
The RV-10/-14 wing is a different airfoil shape to the -7/-8 wing, but is the leading edge similar enough in shape that the RV-14 light bracket W-00017 and lens W-00014 would still fit?


Note that Dustyone has his lights sitting in a Duckworks Aviation mounting bracket.

I currently have the FLYLED wing tip position and strobe kit and get a ton of compliments. My existing Ductworks leading edge lights are more than not bright enough even with less installed. Talked to Paul at Oshkosh and he said the wing tips must be removed to install in the existing Ductworks leading edge kit. My. wing tips are riveted on and I vinyl wrapped my airplane so I did not want to consider this an option. I purchased one of the light kits to try and sure enough 100% they can be installed through the current opening of the Ductworks kit with some patience.
Assembling the light kit per his instructions but doing the final assembly inside the wing hole is very easily accomplished.
I am going to get with him and order up the second one for my left wing, might as well go for the sun effect!
Once received I would be happy to document and picture the install, again not bad at all and completed in under 1 hour!

Default Wing Cut-Out Measurements

I have had a few requests for a template of the wing cut out to fit the RV-14 lens kit.
The following is all you will need.

First order the RV-14 lens and retainers (#nos in this thread )

Once you have the retainers, you use them to finish the radius at the top and bottom of the cut-out.



Using the dimensions above,mark out the top of the leading edge and then use one of the retainers to get the matching radius.



Use the same method for the lower cut out. I found using a square against the wing end was a great way to make sure everything was square and straight.



The cut was made using a thin disc metal cutting Dremel, an easy tool to control.
Finishing with a scotch wheel and then I masked up and painted the inside wing cavity.



I have been flying with these lights for over a month now and have been surprised by how many people come over after you land to comment how visible you are from soo far away.
Truly a great safety improvement even for day VFR

A couple of short videos are here.....

Default RV-10

I put the lights in via the Wingtip removal method and I personally do not think that you need the RV-14 openings. They are bright enough and the angle of the lighting I believe is focused forwards enough not to worry about the need to adjust from the standard Duckworks kit.

But as they say, your distance may vary.
