To all

I'm in the process of adding navigation lights and maybe search light also for my Align A109 in MH-68A Stingray theme (U.S. Coast Guard). I have a few navigation light questions that I still can't find the answer in the google search.

Questions are:
1. Is there any light in front of the heli (or heli nose)? Apart from the search light.
2. I think there are 2 strobe lights. One at the below of the tail section and one on top, just behind the main shaft. How does the strobe light strobe sequence looks like? Is it one Blink and pause for 1 second and then the second one Blink and pause for 1 second?

Nav lights.

OK I'll givce this a stab. Red on left, Green on right, steady white on tail (not a strobe like every body sells). Red marker top and bottom flashing (usually speration for and aft from each other, not one on top of the other). Nose only houses landing lights, or spot.

Hope this helps,

JC (Who is building a 109 as well)

Thanks J_Cunny

Do u have information to the strobe like blinking sequence? Is it Blink-Blink-LongPause-Blink-Blink? or Blink-LongPause-Blink?

Sadly I crash my A109 last Sunday. The crash is due to TRex tail pulley (at the body) shaft broke off. Metal fatigue failure I think. Damages are:
1. DIY 4 bladed head damage.
2. Main shaft bend.
3. Fuselage at the tail section crack open (blade strike I think)
4. Tail skids bend and almost break off.

I will repair it but it will take a while.
