    Rick,

    Skybeacon/Tailbeacon requires a 337. Since the Pacer/Tripacer is on the AML its a pretty simple process. When my A&P installed it, he had already completed it. I can't answer whether or not it is relevant to the madras tip. That would be something to ask Steve or someone that has those tips. I may have a copy of the template. If I do I will send it to you via PM. Check this thread as well, Steve may have posted it.

    I don't think you need a spacer, the fin points down a bit and my Dad made a spacer for a Tri-Pacer with droop tips and it was not needed. Wood is fine and would be concidered minor. I sell the skyBeacon for $1750.

    The spacer I have been making and selling is .125" thick to allow mounting the skyBeacon on the STC Piper nav light bracket. Gotta make some tomorrow since the Super Cub I have been rebuilding for the last several years flew away on Friday. Been putting some stuff off the last 2 weeks finishing it up.

    Droop tip on a TriPacer
    No spacer needed. I did reinforce the back of the fiberglass tip with a piece of 1/4” plywood.

    Gilbert,

    That's a nice, clean install. It looks better on our birds than I thought it would. Looking forward to getting the Skylight for the right wing. Maybe in time they will have Skysensor TSO'd for certificated aircraft.

    There's a couple of different 'Droop Tips' that I've seen: Plane Booster and Madrass. The mount for the light is in different places on each.

    If you look back up at post #498 from SM022 (dated 3/13/19) it shows the Plane Booster tips and the light mount is lower on the curve and probably wouldn't need the spacer.

    However, the Madrass tips can be seen in post #580, Stevesaircraft(Bri) dated 5/3/19 as well as post #543 by Tjlbaron dated 4/7/19, you can see the light is mounted higher on the curve and needs a spacer to keep from hitting the wingtip. I have the Madrass tips.
