What is the choice for landing/taxi lights in 10's these days? Has anyone installed Van's or others LED lamps? I had some HID lights but they were running hot and have failed so I need to try something else. The HID's I had in there were the MR16 configuration since they would fit in place of Van's original wingtip lights. I replaced Van's lights with the HID and they were really bright I think just too hot for long life. Also having trouble finding the lamp I need. There is an RV-12 here that has the LED cluster in the wing that seems OK. But I'm reluctant to cut open the wing....

I found some LED lights down at Lowes in the MR16 package and they will fit right in but they are not very bright. 50W and 700 Lumens is the brightest I could find. Looking for more light.

I pulled out all the HID brackets and put in a new homemade bracket for the Baja Designs Squadron PRO LED fixture.  It used the same mounting holes as the previous bracket.  VERY bright.  Over 4000 lumens.  Of course, I'm still in construction mode, so all I know is that it really lit up the hangar!  A bit less weight as well.

If you want insanely bright lights you can get a Duckworks kit and the Baja XL80 light. 9,500 lumens each. It’s more expensive, slightly heavier than an HID setup, draws almost 6 amps, but it’s so awesome!
The HID looks like a candle next to it. Smile
