Oh by the Vlad I think you might have some of my Intersection Fairings on your RV like hundreds of others.

We were just talking about those robust little things. You shipped them direct to me from SA. The amount of beating the fairings took is unimaginable. Still attached great job Jan thanks!

What I did not mention is that there is a wire you can connect to sync the two strobes. Then there is also a built in function to strobe the landing lights as well as a wig wag mode for the landing lights.

Below is the rear of the module where you can see the three switch mode power supplies and weatherproof connectors. Note the metal cans in order to contain RF noise.

Default RV10 update

Just an update - I have recently acquired an RV10 and therefore had the time to see how an install these light modules into the RV10 wingtip. It was actually quite easy by just adding an adaptor plate that moves the bases slightly inboard. It does not affect anything else like light angles. Really happy with it. Now to update the install documentation.
The first picture is of the one wingtip with the old nav/strobe removed. The second picture is the end result. The carbon fiber is vinyl to cover the old marks and holes.

Very cool.

I also have a taxi light in each tip, aimed differently than the landing light because it is tailwheel. Any solution for that?

Hi Steve,
The lights are easily adjustable by loosening the screw and moving it up or down. If one only use these in the tips I would think of having on at 0 degrees and one at about 10 degrees down, with reference to the wing chord line.

Also keep in mind that the lenses are 10 degrees which on it's own is a nice spread.

Below is a picture where you can clearly see the adjustment screw and slot.
