Mel has it right: far 1.1 is as clear as mud. (“A TSO is one way, but not the only way, to be approved”). Besides lighting, the faa has very publicly okayed adsb-out that is not TSO’d but with a manufacturer’s statement that it met the performance specs. And the faa is allowing non-TSO’d efis boxes on normally certified aircraft. etc. So if you are rolling your own lights and want to CYA you might write a note in your maintenance records that you compared your lights to those on a Cessna (for example), and yours were at least as bright or brighter, at all required angles, were the proper color, etc.

Gee I just wanted to know if they were going to be singing in my headset and screwing up my radios and I learned a lot more. Really just need a beacon for startup and taxi since the strobes are so bright. I’ll definitely put that statement in the logs about comparing them to a spam can light.

Wink MSTRB hideaway strobes

Just received and tested two MSTRB red LED strobes. No noise, incredibly Bright,
Incredibly light weight, synchronized and incredibly low price compared to a Aeroled or Whelen TSO beacon. They are cheaper and brighter than my Whelen quartz beacon.
Shout out to Moosepiliet for the inspiration.

I'd like to install this in an inspection plate on the belly for ease of serviceability.

Is there a common Van's part number for an inspection plate kit that would be suitable?
