Very bright, like the strobe mode, work as advertised
Very bright strobe / Nav light. Low amp draw to alternator. Great product.
they work great. very bright.
These are at least 50% brighter than the standard Grimes 14v Nav lights and they are a whiter light also. Durability to be determined. I think they rock. The strobe model is great too. It may give you anti collision light capability if your regular beacon burns out you can switch to the strobe mode on this model. Basically a back up anti collision capability. Beats the heck out of paying $1200 for a set of LED fixtures and they fit a standard Grimes Nav light fixture.
Works as advertised
Everyone should keep in mind that flashing nav lights are NOT legal (homebuilt or cert.) The nav lights should be solid on steady.
A little more pricey than some led nav lights but very easy to install. The strobe function doesnt always work. Once they get warmed up I cant get the strobe function to work at all.
When in strobe mode, they create a high level of RF interference which the COM and NAV radios pick up. If you are talking to ATC, you will not be able to hear them when the LED is in strobe mode. The frequency that is most affected is above 120.00 MHz. It seems that at 119.9 and below, the interference is far less. Operationally, they are bright and easily fit in my standard NAV light mounts. The strobe mode is very effective.
I installed in a Cessa wingtip and look great,they cause static on aircraft radio when on
Very bright but causes so much static on 2 X KX-155 had to remove. Spent considerable $$ on vendors recommended fix but in the end went for another brand as the static was never resolved.
No, at this time these are not FAA Approved for use in certified aircraft. A 337 field approval would be necessary for installation.
Please note that this is just a replacement bulb, not a strobe system. It is a direct plug-n-play replacement for the original Grimes A-1512 bulb, and therefore no other item is required to replace it.
Yes, the length is approximately 1-15/16 inches from bottom of base to tip of bulb. The diameter of the bulb is approximately 3/4".
