Nav light question Hughes 500D
Hi guys, I ordered the Heliartist Hughes 500D with the lighting kit last week from Helidirect. I never really paid attention until now, the kit has a flashing red beacon on the doghouse behind the main rotor. Looking at pictures of the real 500 I only seen this beacon on the V tail model and the rest had the red beacon on the back of the T tail. Now, I know this is really only a sport scale because if the skid placement, length, ect...... I'm not even sure if I'm going to change the tail to the left side or even change the rotor direction. Probally get a penta head down the road though.

My question is this, would it be worth it to move the beacon to the tail? The only people who are going to know anyways are me and the people here. None of my friends or the people I fly with will even know.

Also, could someone tell me if on the real 500D if the top white tail light flashes or is solid? On the kit it flashes. Thanks

As far as the beacon on the top, some 500D still run them, most that have the AFS/K&N Filter system installed have moved the beacon to a mount on the vertical fin. I have one in both positions on my 500E. As far as the horizontal fin light it is a "stop Light" and doesnt flash, its typically solid on. Hope this helps.Joel

Thank you, it does help. It also means I wasted some money on the lights if I want it to be a "close" scale bird. Oh well, it looks good.
