I've got the FLYLED's "The Works" kit which puts three of those high output lamps in the wingtips. There are no leading edge cutouts, which made me wonder what visibility might be with the higher angle of attack that the three point position gives. I also wondered with the lights out on the sides if the wingtips would block it from shining directly in front of the plane. Fortunately, the lights are independently aimable which gives me the ability to throw light on the ground at approach without losing it all when the nose is in the air on rollout.

My experience: During the day, neighbors say it looks like a 747 is coming in to land! I just flew my night currency the other day. 4 TOL's on a grass strip with moderately effective lighting. No problem. Get down close and its lit up like day. Highly recommend the FlyLED's.
