Re: LED Landing light?
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I've been working on a landing/taxi light for my VariEze, I took some photos of testing it the other day:
The LEDs are several lengths of this stuff:
- Extremely bright
- No mechanisms required
- Efficient, runs around 12W for that much light
- Light not focused, so lots of spillover and possibly blinding folks on the ground
- Needs 24V (solved this one as I made a 12V to 24V converter)
Haven't flown it yet, but I'll let you know when I do. My plan is to seal & attach it to the front of the strut with some electronics-grade silicone (Momentive RTV5818) to allow it to flex, along with some clear wing tape for secondary retention.
