The increased recognition is certainly a big advantage to the RMD's. Did you have them eliminate the factory land/taxi light position when you had the Sportsman installed? Were you satisfied with the work Northland did?
I left the factory landing/taxi light in place. Originally I had thought to add a second factory landing/taxi light on the unlit wing, and add pulse ability for both sides. But tracking one of those down and obtaining approvals was turning into an uphill battle.
Ultimately the reason for leaving the factory landing/taxi lights in place and adding the RMDs was that they really serve different purposes. One is constant, and aimed at the ground/ landing area, and the other pulses and aims far out in front of the ship.
Northland was the Alaska point of sale for Sportsman before Stene bought it. I believe Jon said he's installed upward of 200 at his shop. Great installation, and didn't even need to wait since he had a kit in stock ready to go.
