Assuming I get a full Pilots License and wish to fly the LSA CH-750 as a regular plane after the sun sets, I’d like to know where those of you who have equal ambitions plan to install your landing/taxi lights on the CH-750? Do folks even fly STOLs after hours as I don’t recall seeing them on the Zenith website on any of the CH-801 photos. With the fixed leading edge wing slat on the Zenith STOLs, it would be very difficult to install wing recessed landing light within the slat and if you managed it, how would it disrupted airflow during climbs or landings when the fixed leading edge wing slats come into play. I’m not sure if there is room for a small LED type landing light in the wing tip areas fixed foward on these planes or if the jarring from landings would have some adverse affect on the landing lights if it were placed on the front landing gear just above the wheel (I'm thinking this may be the best option, unless I hear of problems)? Could they be recessed in the cowling or hang from the struts? If anyone have any thoughts on this subject and have plans to install landing lights or have done so already on one of these STOLS, that doesn’t screw up the STOL characteristics or create a lot of drag, I love to hear what you have to say on this subject.
