  1. Got it! There was some goop and double sided tape as well. The top comes off with a hex head key but that's as far as I managed to get. Kuntzleman 610 326 9068 no luck for a replacement but a quick search of the web reveals "This self contained 14 Volt beacon uses surface mounted LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology and meets FAA requirements for anti-collision light systems in both airplane and rotorcraft categories. This rugged little unit measures 1.7 inches in diameter, 3.5 inches tall and weighs 8.4 ounces. The average current draw at 14 volts is 0.6 Amps with a peak input c
  2. This is the setup on mine. The light must be glued into the fibreglass housing because it does not want to come out!
  3. Yep that's what I am after, a replacement which is fairly straight forward and inexpensive. Jab now have the replacement listed on the website at $950 but last time I called even these were unavailable. Most of them don't seem to last much beyond 5 years or so I guess dependant on use.
  4. Has anyone come up with a workaround for the tail beacon light on 230/430 Jabs which on my machine and some others I am aware of failed. When the original light failed I contacted Jabiru and there was no replacement available. A replacement which just plugs in would be nice!
  5. Dubbo back to Broken Hill and a look at a rarely wet flood plain South East of Wilcannia getting a bit of a drink after recent flows down the Darling. From 4500'.
  6. No App, just press record on the camera video button, records at FHD. It keeps recording as long as it is left on. If you want to record for hours you could connect via USB into aircraft to charge but I've never noticed a power drain problem.
  7. This is my solution a cheap ass clamp and a cheap ass lapel microphone which plugs in my Samsung phone. No extra gear, microphone sits in the headset earcup. High Definition video and with a 32GB memory card which will record long enough to send even the most interested aviator to sleep. The video is such good quality I can just chop high def photos straight from the video (see below). Less than $30. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/373394743010

    WANTED - a set of Rotec Water cooled heads for a 3300. PM if you have a set or know of a set. Thanks


  9. Old thread, any new products or techniques being used?
  10. This is an old thread but relevant to a hangar chat I had today where we wondering how many projects get delivered and never opened or started and never completed. Do you know of any examples at your airfield?
  11. ASICs - a laugh at regional airfields. Kids can fly from the age of 15 but cannot get an ASIC until 18. Curtis Cheng was shot and killed in a terrorist act in 2015 in a Parramatta street. Curtis was killed by a 15yo scumbag. In the past almost 20 years what has been achieved in that context. As has been raised over and over, they are a political gesture.
  12. Love it, what a great feature. Thanks for the pointer.
  13. Thanks, not sure where to find traces on Windy but found what I was looking for here... http://ausrasp.com/ no login, no cost.
