Flyleds Single Spotlight kit
Looking to replace your MR-16 halogen landing lights?
The single LED spotlight from our "The Works" kit was designed with the same mounting holes as the globe holders that Van's supply in their halogen lighting kits.
They are a drop-in replacement for your Van's halogen lamps, with the following points to note:
- 1 amp current draw per spotlight versus 5+ amps for a halogen!
- 1200+ lumens per spotlight of nice clear 8 degree beam of white light, versus 5-600 lumens of yellow light.
- With a linear power supply design, there will be no radio or intercom noise. None. We promise!
Supplied un-assembled as the completed light PCB, heatsink, collimating lens, and mounting nutplates and rivets. Each light requires about 15 minutes of assembly time. (No soldering required!)
The typical 6-32UNC mounting screws and springs are optional. If you are replacing your Van's halogens you already have these!
The heatsinks extend 70mm behind the board, and the collimating lenses are 27mm tall. They are not specifically waterproof (or very aerodynamic!) so they would need to be mounted behind plexiglass in your DIY creations.
Flyleds Seven Stars Landing Light
When too much light is barely enough...
Following on from the success of our Works kit and Combo lights, these lights are designed to fit in the leading edge light position of your plane. They will fit into a Duckworks or Van's PAR36 light bracket.
With seven Cree XHP35 LEDs the Seven Stars spotlight projects 8400 lumens of nice clear 5000k white light forward. Our highly efficient collimating lenses throw all of that light way out front and center where it's needed.
8 amps max current draw.
If you have a 100w halogen in your wings now, you're already pulling that much current and you'd be lucky to have 1200 lumens of (eww, yellow) light...
700 grams / 1.5 pounds each. The heatsink extends 90mm behind the mounting plate.
As with the rest of the Flyleds products, there is some assembly required! We've been busy with the 3D printer to make this as easy as possible. All you need is a single screwdriver and about 20 minutes of time.
Please note: We know for sure this light fits through the lightening holes in the end wing rib of the RV-10. That means it also fits the RV-9, as well as the RV-14 wing, although it will fit straight in to the larger light bay already on the -14.
To fit the light to an RV-7 wing, the board will require trimming of one of the mounting tabs:
For the RV-6 and 4 wings, you're out of luck as the rib holes are too small, unless you already have a nice wide (5"+) hole in the leading edge of your wings.
