RV-14 wiring harness integration

Van’s supplies a “Common Fuselage harness” WH-00125 along with wiring harnesses for the wings and tail.  This guide shows you how to integrate our The Original or The Works Flyleds kits with these harnesses, along with our landing lights.

Advanced Quick Panel ACM integration

The ACM is just a (very clever!) big red fuse block as far as the Flyleds kit is concerned.  We’d put one in a new plane too!  This wiring guide should help you to visualize how to connect your Flyleds kit to it. (Hint: it’s easy!)

And now it’s been made even easier with our new ACM Controller Board:

Vertical Power VP-X integration

The VP-X is also a big red fuse block as far as the Flyleds kit is concerned!
Our landing lights can be happily wired directly to two output pins to take advantage of the automatic wigwag function in the VP-X.  Follow their instructions and configure the ports in their software.
The Flyleds controller board is still required for the strobe LEDs to function correctly.  Click below for the diagrams.

RV-4/-6/-8 (W-415 wingtip) specific instructions:

They’re back!

OEM Lenses are now also available from our friends at Flyboy Accessories

The W-415 wing can be modified with a kit originally supplied by Van’s.  This makes an aluminium light bay with the faces at 90° to each other.

The template and instructions below shows you how simple it would be to hand-craft something similar, as Van’s no longer stock these parts.  You could even simply place fiberglass or aluminium tabs or strips inside the wing for the Flyleds boards to attach to.
Order the Original Kit and select the W-415RA option.

Note that there was also a light bay retrofit available made from fiberglass with an 120° opening.
We sell the W-415FG kit to suit this as well.

If your RV-4/6/8 Hoerner wingtips have a PAR36 landing light in them, we have a Flyleds kit for you!
Order RV-4/-6/-8 LGE.  Check the Wing Templates files for sizing.  Our Combo and Quad lights will fit this kit.
