cheaper alternative to A500 tail light bulb?
as many others, we have the Whelen A500 combined strobe / nav tail light at the tail.
for the second time already over the years, the navlight bulb (part A508-14) has failed. it comes in at a whopping $60+, even without shipping and handling...
anyone found a cheaper alternative? in the end it looks like a glorified halogen bulb with some legs bent sideways... and it's a harsh environment, so the fail will repeat quite regularly.
wanted to avoid replacing the whole unit / going all led right now as the strobe system (from creativair at the time) and wingtip lights are basically fine, including the tail strobe.
thanks for pointers...
As you appear to want to go for led lights later why don?t you just replace the tail/strobe with the stand-alone FlyLeds unit, you can use the existing wiring with a small modification at the other end? The added benefit is that the strobe is really bright too.:)
A google search shows this bulb available for around $15.
