Mini Max Ariel Daylite

Post by AlabamaSlingPilot »

The Mini Max Ariel Daylite seems to be the most popular Beacon to mount above the rudder. First question is are there other ones used (In the US)? I have ordered one from Kestrel Air, they seemed to have the best price I could find. Other questions are, did anyone find a better price some where else? What color? I ordered Red, because I am familiar with red beacons on the certified aircraft I am currently flying. Are you using the steady for any purpose? I can't thing of anything you would do with a beacon other than strobe. What lights do you plan to connect on the same circuit? Are you syncing it to the wingtip strobes? I was planning to connect the strobe to Master without a switch, since I cannot identify a use case for not having the beacon on with the master? What do folks think about that? I know, many questions, but a welcome an honest discussion.

Use case for master without strobe ... programming or playing with the avionics suite with no intention to start the engine?

Timing was impeccable on this - I needed to order my beacon today. :)
