Upgrading fuselage beacon on 172A
I have an ancient, white strobe, looped bulb, on the belly of my 172A. The bulb burned out last April, and I had to replace the entire assembly because it's a modular assembly. It had a 6 month warranty, and quit working again after the seventh month. Now looking to replace it with an LED, which has a 5 year warranty. I'd like to upgrade to LED to save amps on my O-300 with just a generator, and those LEDs just seem more visible to me. My mechanic recommends Whelen or Aero. Any suggestions on what to replace it with?
