Make a hard point under the outboard wing and fab a bullet shape for the light and secure it. Lots of ways to do it.

Re: New/old VariEze takes to the sky

Good to see you have brought the old girl back to better than new flying condition. I am wondering what your impressions are now that you have some seat time. I realize that the Defiant has a different mission, but which do you prefer to fly just for fun?

Empty wt was 658.  That’s only ten pounds over the 1981 wt.  accounted for mostly by the O-200 replacing the C-90 and a 6 inch extension.  Little mor tail heavy but I carry a little more counter balance than I did in 1981.

This is perfect but I don't even have the lower winglets. I was hoping for a bolt-on solution.

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!!

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!!

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.
