Default RV-10 Wingtips

Have to replace one of the wingtips for the 10 and contemplating upgrading both and seeing what out there people like outside the stock tips? Aveo seems to have some cool wing tips but their site isn't working (at least at the moment).

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Vans has new carbon fiber wing tips, but they arenít inexpensive.

I can't speak to Van's tips, but I have the ZipTips Premiere v3 with winglets and like them. I'm not sure of the value the winglet ads, but at the very least they are super bright and look cool. There are several posts in this forum on these tips worth reading.

I just checked and it seems to be working Aveo ZipTips

Thanks,

The new AeroSun VXi ones Van's is selling look pretty nice and similar to ZipTips. Wonder how they compare.

There are several good threads on this comparison. Here’s one I provided a lumen comparison.

https://vansairforce.net/community/s...ghlight=Ziptip

On paper, the Ziptips have more light available down the runway, but I’m not aware of an actual side-by-side comparison. Ziptips are more of a complete integrated option, but the Vans tips with AeroSuns may be fine as well. Probably comes down to your preferences.
