My navigation lights showed up today. They are combination navigation lights and strobes. The navigation lights are needed for night flight. The strobes are needed any time the engine is running. I bought them through a group buy discount over at the Rans Clan website. They are nice! Of course I can’t receive something in the mail and then just put it on the shelf for when I need it later. I have to take it out of the box and play with it.
I grabbed my trusty bench 12V power supply and connected it to the power leads of the nav light portion of the units.
The green light goes on the right wing of the airplane with the white light facing toward the rear of the airplane. This white light built into the unit negates the need for a white navigation light on the tail of the plane.
Here is a video I took of the units while they were flashing:
