NO! IN fact they put just enough light brushing the canard so anyone above or in the pattern can see the plane.
I think, my opinion that it looks cool, not at all overwhelming.Next night flight I'll see if a picture will turn out.

Tom,  do you have ant issues with the lights illuminating the canard and thus affecting your forward vision?

Second one I've seen. I think we have a great setup. I modified the lamps somewhat to fit.

Hey Tom, we think alike - mine have been flying 22 years now.  Would like to go from halogen to LED bulbs but getting narrow beam (5-12 deg) in LED is difficult!!
Advantage of landing lights in the wingtips is getting around amongst others on the aprons and parking lots.  Steady or wig-wag....... works for me!

Photo IS the correct way up - if you live in the Southern Hemisphere anyway!!

At 500 lums this works just fine for me.
