Default Flyleds 7 Spot HID Replacement

Paul at Flyleds has released a 7 Spot LED drop in replacement for my old HID's that are currently in my RV-10.

They can only be fitted by removing the wing tip.


The old HID's coming out,


The new Flyleds mount straight in the old Duckwork mounts,


The new heat-sinks are a work of art ,


These lights are crazy bright at 8400 Lumens each !


This is a single light shining on my neighbours hangar,


The new lights are an instant MASSIVE upgrade to my old HID's however ever since the RV-14 came out with its large light cutout, I had wondered what they would look like on the RV-10. The standard Duckwork template was for an older and smaller light and restricts all of the good photons of light from Flyleds massive 7 spot.

Top of the leading edge with the NEW Flyleds.


The RV-14 template over my wing,


It was time to order the RV-14 parts from Van's and get out the Dremmel !

With the new RV-14 lenses and retainers, it was a simple job to mark out and CUT INTO MY PAINTED WING ! ( Did I mention measure twice cut once ! )





to be continued.....

Default Part 2

The new install was an easy upgrade,



The finished results were way beyond my expectations...




Taxing at YRED ,Redcliffe Australia,


Lining up on 07



On final for 07 with a crosswind.



I was surprised how dificult it has been to get good night time photos with an iphone. I am hoping to get some better ones next week.

Seriously folks...........YOU WANT LIGHT????

THESE ARE THE ANSWER

GAME, SET & MATCH


Add these to the Works pack (launched this time last year) and you will be like an airliner for light.

Default RV-10 Wing Tip

Is it small enough that it could fit in the wing tip of the RV-10 as opposed to leading edge? In my case, I have a 15 gal aux fuel tank in the way.

Did the leading edge kit you ordered from Van's include a bracket for mounting the light as well or did it just include the lens and the parts to mount the lens? I know you already had the Duckworks kit but I'm thinking about putting this in the RV-10 leading edges I am about to build and the 'LL LENS KIT RV-10' on the Van's website sounds like it may not come with the bracket for the light.

Hi Tim,

The parts you will need from Vans are,

2 x W-00014 RV-14 Lens
4 x W-00018 RV-14 Lens Retainer
8 x K 1000-06 Nutplates

2 x Round Lampless Kit from Duckworks Aviation , I think you can order just the bracket as you will not use the smaller lenses.

I'll do some measurements next week of the cut out.There is no template that I know of , i just worked it out based on a local RV-14

Hi Steve.
These area PAR36 sized light and won't fit in the wingtips.
You'd be looking for our The Works kit instead.

Hi Rob.
With around 7-8 amps of current draw and our deliberately low-tech (and therefore noiseless) power regulation used for the LEDs, we specify 14AWG. Ashley had 16AWG already in his wings and I think he's still moderately happy with the outcome!
So, 16 will work but 14 is preferred with a little less voltage drop over the run.
(Two runs of 18AWG in parallel will also work a treat if you have ~100ft spare.)

You may want to warn others to avert their eyes as you taxi past them.
