Thumbs up Fly Leds install

Hi Guys,

I d like to give a shout out for Paul at http://flyleds.com

I purchased one of Pauls kits for my RV7, it was easy to assemble and almost as easy to install had I read the instructions first;







Cheers

Default Agreed!

Super helpful when I made an ordering mistake even though it was my fault. Also an amazingly bright product. Havenít powered mine up yet but a plane at Petit Jean had them on briefly one evening and they were awesome! Building them is a fun new experience too!

Nice job, Eddie. Tell me about the landing lights.

I'm doing it now for an old flaptop wingtip. The soldering is straight forward. the real challenge will be doing all the glass work to make a neat recess for the clear plastic cover. The kit is going together pretty easily. ****, I shouldn't have said that - I've probably jinxed it

Hi GatorJim

The landing lights were originally duck-works, I bought replacement LED inserts from:

Excellent product, easy installation and excellent price, very bright.

I bought a kit from Paul as well, along with the tail light for the rudder bottom, and I absolutely love it! It was fun soldering it all together (I had never soldered anything before. Easy.) and I have it all fitted to the wingtips, lenses fitted and drilled, and my RV-7A is nearing completion.

I have shown many visitors to my hangar how excellent these lights work, just using a little 9-volt battery for the demo. Fun stuff!
