    Check out the maxpulse and maxdim for instrument panel dimmers and landing light pulsers. I found them at Aircraft Spruce . They are STCd for a gaggle of aircraft and look to solve some problems in construction since they are small and require no external boxes, heatsinks etc.

    Apparently you do, since you said in another forum that you installed the dimmer in a 150.

    Looks like it will handle the amps pretty good, but there is other stuff out there that does that now. Somewhat interesting that the installation page for the flasher says "Seaton Engineering Corp. Spokane Valley, WA", but the contact page says Statesboro, GA.

    Aircraft Spruce sells these.

    For really really cheap versions check out Jim Weir's website (the guy who does the electronics column in Kitplanes). The June and July 2001 articles are what you want.

    If you want to pimp out a product, go ahead. Just don't lie about it. It really lowers your creditability.

    Marks, I'm with Skeeter. Unless we are all reading this wrong, you are promoting a product in which you have some investiture but trying to act like you have no connection to the company, and that's just insulting.

    We have no problem with someone from a company telling us about their products, but be open and forthright about it. We even have a supplier section for it on the forum (Supplier / Manufacturer Announcements), and it gets seen by everyone here (we are all pretty diligent about seeking out and reading new posts anywhere on the forum). Baileigh Inc and Hart Aero are but just two of the manufacturers that use it freely and with success.

    Bruce :)
