These type of lights are nowhere close to the brightness needed for landing or taxi lights.  They are effective for recognition in flight, especially when wagging but that’s it.   The fact they put the “landing light” (or even taxi) in the title is ridiculous.

Ian,

 

Those lights look great for Taxy and for making your aircraft stand out as wig wag lights but they stress they have a wide beam so no, not suitable as serious landing lights.

 

Cheap though.

 They look great but do you think they put out enough light for landing (250 lumens each)? I bet they're fine for taxiing, but landings too? The wigwag controller is a bonus too! Now I gotta figure out where to put yet another switch.

 

Thanks a bunch, I remember seeing your writeup before but couldn't remember where.
