I have been trying to correlate this discussion to the actual products on Squadron's product page, so bear with me:

Which Baja product do you recommend to replace my 50W Duckworth HIDs? Mine are the round lights, one in each wing, and they're both the same product. However, I use the left light as a landing light (replace with a spot?) and the right one for taxi light (a spot/flood?).

Based on the wattage of your existing lights, the 42W Squadron Pro with 4,900 lumen each should work. I am installing mine in the tips, but I think there are other options on the forum that address LED's suitable for installation in the leading edge recess that may save you from having to make adjustment fixtures for the Baja lights.

Default Regarding Lenses - they are replaceable/avilable

I have a hard time deciding without eyeball data, so I got the lights with the lower two LEDs diffused/upper clear and purchased extra lenses that are all clear (spot). They will be mounted in the tips so will see what works best. Pretty easy to swap the lenses. Not too expensive either.

Thanks, but I'm really trying to figure out if the round Squadron Pros will fit into the mounting bracket that currently houses the round Duckworth bulbs, or will it require modification? If so, am I smart to go with the square units?

Default Wig-wag module

Which wig-wag module did you use.

I'm planning on using a simple solid state flasher since 2 BD squadron sports are going to be installed next to each other.

Don't want to create noise issues though.

Thanks !

Happy to report there is no, none, zip radio noise!

Here is a link to a short video of my lights.

I forget the part number; got it on Amazon. However, the three wire resistive type will not work. Need the solid state four wire version (three lugs and a ground wire). No noise from mine, at least not with the engine running.

Try this one; quiet, easy install, works great with my Baja LEDs.

Perihelion wig wag module. Works very well. Designed for experimental aircraft use. No noise

This is what I used on both planes with baja LEDs. $12
