Aeroled Sunspot. Not cheap, but work great. Got an Oshkosh show special on taxi lights that were misassembled and couldn’t be sold for certified aircraft. No problem for experimental!

I used AeroLeds and happy with them. Watching my plane land with all the lights on gives me comfort on how easy I am to see by other pilots.

When I lived in the Boise area I was able to go in and visit the factory. If anyone else has been you will know what a nice treat that was! Seeing how the lights were made and the new products was interesting too.

If you put your hand in front of energized quad beam Flyleds lights, it will melt. Very happy with them. I fly quite a bit at night.

Microsun because when I got it, it had the widest beam I could find, and I wanted to use it as a daytime running light.

FlyLeds 7 stars in my -14A. Perfect fit in the PAR36 bracket and super bright. (ok, the thumbnail is upside down but when you click on it, it opens up right side up ???!!)
