This is the Giant Scale Version of one of our most popular NavLight circuits, the (5mm) All-In-One NavLights. The Giant Scale version features our 8mm 1/2 Watt Straw Hat LEDs, which are much brighter than the "standard" 5mm or even 8mm LEDs in lower wattage sizes. And the 8mm LEDs feature a unique "Straw Hat" lens that speads the output of the LED in a 120 degree angle, so they are much more visible when viewed off angle, meaning they do not have to be viewed directly from the front.
It also includes one extra White LED for installation in the tailcones of many popular models like the Cessna 182 and the Piper Pawnee, and it comes with longer wire lengths to accommodate the wing spans of larger models. Also included are 7 x Led holders and a pair of our 6-pin connectors for installations that require removal of the wing or wings.
This set features 2 Wingtip Lights (1-Red, 1-Green), 1 Tailcone Light (White), 2 Landing Lights (White), 1 Strobe (White), and 1 Simulated Rotating Beacon (Red). The Landing Lights, Strobe, and Rotating Beacon can all be controlled from the transmitter. The Simulated Rotating Beacon is accomplished using PWM (pulse width modulation) to make the LED look as if it is rotating. The unit plugs into any spare channel, or can be combined with a retract or flap servos using a regular servo "Y". High-brightness LEDs and a low-drain microcontroller circuit mean that it can be safely powered by the receiver's battery, no extra battery is required.
New Option: For those customers who prefer to power their NavLights from an external battery pack, we now offer an External Power Pack that can be ordered sepeartely. It includes a 2S 7.4 volt Li-Po battery and all the cables necessary to power the circuit.
All-In-One NavLights-8mm (Giant Scale)
This circuit features our 8mm 1/2 Watt High-Brightness LEDs, which are made with a special 120 degree lens molded on the top of the LED to provide a much greater viewing angle than a "standard" LED. Each of the 8mm LEDs draws about 120mA when on, however the Strobe and Rotating Beacon LEDs draw much less because they are only on for a fraction of every two seconds, and landing light LEDs only draw full current when they are switched "on", so total current use is not excessive. No additional battery is required, all are powered by the receiver's battery. Wire lengths are 60" for each LED, and all wires can be easily shortened or lengthened as needed using regular speaker or zip wire.
In response to a lot of requests from our customers, the All-In-One Navlight set is designed to give you the best of all worlds, a single unit that includes wingtip and landing lights, as well as both a strobe and a rotating beacon. This unit has 4 operating modes, allowing the Landing Lights, Strobe, and Rotating Beacon to be independently switched from the tranmitter using a single proportional channel (channel 6 or higher). It also features 3 different blink patterns for the strobe, and 2 different "speeds" for the rotating beacon, which together provide 6 different combinations of strobe and beacon patterns. A small, push-button switch on the main circuit board cycles between the 6 patterns, and the unit remembers the last setting chosen even after the battery has been removed from the plane. So once you select the pattern you like best, you don't have to find it again the next time you fly. The 4 operating modes are:
Mode 1-Wingtip Lights ON (the circuit enters Mode 1 as soon as the receiver is powered on.)
Mode 2-Rotating Beacon ON
Mode 3-Strobe and Rotating Beacon ON
Mode 4-All lights (Wingtip, Beacon Strobe and Landing Lights) ON
Modes 2, 3, and 4 can be mixed to a 3-position switch for added convenience. Consult the instruction manual for information on the % of mix necessary to use a switch.
This set can be customized with additional strobes or beacons, or if you prefer, it can be powered from an external battery. Just use the Contact form from the top menu to provide us with the details of what you need, and we can come up with a navigation light set that's perfect for your model.
