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 ! )
