I’ve spent the last few years helping a friend to build his Van’s RV-10. He wanted to use LEDs for the strobes and position lights.
The design brief from him was pretty simple: “I want to be seen!”
The target light output was to be the same as or better than a certified LED product, as seen fitted to a Cessna Citation business jet.
I set about researching other designs and products, and after picking myself up off the floor upon seeing the prices, I came up with this design.
The prototypes have flown for more than 100 hours. After getting several requests for a set of lights from other owners, I’ve sourced the parts in bulk, had quality custom boards made, and ordered a factory run of LEDs.
