Wire for Tail/Strobe light
 
Hi all, I bought a partially completed empenage kit in 2019 and am now getting to the part where I can start attaching the HS, VS and rudder. I know I saw this issue a while ago on here but looked back and am unable to find it, so I will address it again. When and where do I run the wire out of the tail cone, through the VS and into the rudder. I can't find anything about it in the plans.
Am I missing something? Mark

Look at the section entitled RV-10 Wiring, page OP37-16. On my USB plans stick, which I got late last year, it's not in the construction drawings folder but is a separate section on the main menu.

This is the drawing you need...

Ok, thanks guys, that's what I needed! Guess I need to get the USB stick.

If you have not yet chosen your lighting package, then you might consider using a wingtip lighting system that includes white position lights visible from the rear.

Per this post - if you go with the Aveo premier wingtips, you do not need a rear light since the winglets have rear position and strobe lights already.

That being said, I'm installing BOTH the Aveo wingtips AND an Aveo rear pos/strobe, because it will look cool to have three synchronized blinking lights like a 787. So, just because you don't have to do it, doesn't mean you don't have a reason to do it.

Thanks guys, hadn't thought of that but definitely sounds like a great solution!
