The OL's for each EAB (HB is not a category) aircraft will state something along the lines of:
And I agreed with you there - no requirement for LL's unless operated for hire, which EAB aircraft are not permitted to do.
Unless I"m misunderstanding what your'e saying here, "that's it" isn't correct - see below:
While the wording has changed a bit over the years, this is the controlling paragraph, and indicates that for night and/or instrument flight, 91.205 compliance is required. Paragraph (C)(2) of 91.205 requires position lights, as you indicate, but paragraph (C)(3) requires anti-collision lights (which, in our case, is almost always strobes). There is nothing in the OL's or 91.205 that absolves EAB aircraft from this requirement, as it flows from the OL's to 91.205.
Maybe we're saying the same thing and I'm just misunderstanding you.
