Default Working for me too

I thought I'd share another success report. After seeing this posting I found some online ($18/each from TopBulb) and ordered them. I installed them last night and ... no noise. So far, so good. Now I just need to get out one night and fly with them.

Default how are they wired?

I've tried the SOra's and 2 other MR16 LED's with the wires twisted all the way thru the wing, but not shielded. I've grounded at the main ground and locally in the tip, put noise magnets on and the interference is just never acceptable.

Do you have shielded wiring?

Just in case anyone is interested.....

Yes, my wiring through the wing is shielded.

Default LED

Has anyone found a similar LED light for the 2.25x5" rectangular light in RV-8 wing (and others, I suspect)?

Thanks.
