All your planning questions that everyone else has mulled over on the RV 14 forum are consolidated onto the "General construction" and "Avionics" PDF's on the WIKI (see signature)

Enjoy

Hi Dennis
Ryan has chosen the recommended Flyleds setup for an RV-14. Perfect!
The regular tail light flashes in sync/pattern with the wingtips and is what most of our customers choose.
If you're building a nose wheeler you can choose our Quad Spots instead of the Combos. Or, for the best lights ever our Seven Stars will be right at home in the leading edges.

Note that the price of Van's tail light alone is almost the same as our complete strobe system...

I don't plan on making any major changes to our products at this point, but others are correct in that you don't need to purchase a tail light or the rest of the system just yet. However I'm always here for you whenever you'd like to spend some money!

As most everyone is suggesting, I would also agree not to purchase the light with the kit and wait to see what else is out there. I ended up going with FlyLeds and purchased their Seven stars wingtip lights and tail strobe setup. I only had to slightly modify the installation of the wing leading edge lights by turning them about 45 degrees or so if I remember correctly to mount to the Van's provided mounting plate.

They are extremely easy to build and as Paul stated, the price is unbeatable for an outstanding product with outstanding customer service.

good luck in your build! its a fun ride!

Thank you for the info. After reading the responses from others and yourself I will be going with Flyleds. I noticed that you are based in MEL. When the borders open up and international flights I'm sure I will be back doing layovers in MEL at the Crown in the CBD. Perhaps I could stop by, discuss the best option for my build and purchase a kit.

Scott

I watched your video on the assembly of your Flyleds kit and it convinced me they are the right choice. I was a bit intimidated until I saw your video. Thank you for being such an informative source online.

Having been in lock down here for so long here in Melbourne, what you're describing, ie meeting a visitor from another country again, is beyond my wildest imagination!
For sure, but only if I can buy the beers.
