But attention: These are the smaller PAR36 size. Only a larger PAR46 size LED will be a direct replacement without modification of the Sedan's lamp mounts.

What about the condensation issues you experienced Matt? Have those been solved?

No, Richard,

I have not done any modifications to my Whelen LEDs, yet. My complacency is part due to the fact that there was no condensation ever, during the entire summer flying season. It definitely only forms, when the outside temperatures drop.

But I am still hoping myself to get some feedback from other pilots who might be using a different make of LEDs. So far, none.

Matt

Matt, did you ever get the issue with the LED bulbs taken care of? They lasting a good amount of time now?

Thx,

Joe A

Joe,

I have been using the LEDs for three years (200 flying hours, 40 hours LEDs on), now, without any problems except for the condensation issue described earlier in this thread. I will soon have to remove the landing light lens to clean the inside and will then try out the "remove 2 screws, switch on LED, observe that condensation is gone, reset screws, switch off LED-trick". Will post here, if it worked.

Matt

We just completed the annual on our Sedan, but I postponed the LED issue (which really seems to only be a cosmetic issue during the cold season) to the warmer season in favor of some more important modifications. Sorry, Joe. I will post, as soon as I have results.

Matt
