Single Strobe effect for Anti-Collision Lights

I am working on an Tu-22M3 Moc (scale 1:43) and want to add some anti collision light effects. As you can see in this video: https://youtu.be/xe0SY08_Mhc?t=61 the plane has some kind of unique light sequence for the white anti collision lights on the top and the buttom of the fuselage, therefore I cant use the "4-Channel Effect Controller with Airplane Effects".

Maybe the "Single-Function Lighting Effect Controller With 12 Effects" will do the job. But in the demo video the "single strobe" effect is too shorttimed between each sequence and not evenly alternating. So I wonder if can adjust the "offset" by turning off/on each light in order to have the light stobe in even sequence and not directly after each other. Also I wonder if I can vary the speed of the strobe effect to about 1 second pause in between the stobes.

  • Hello Artur , thank you for your message.  Yes, I see the kind of effect that is needed.  Basically a simple back-and-forth flash, yes?  Not quite what we have in any of our controllers today, though it would be easy to implement.  I have been working for some time on a more flexible and advanced aircraft lighting controller, so this could be included with that.

    Is there a website anywhere that you have seen listing the different types and patterns for multiple aircraft?  It would be good to put as many different effects into this new controller as possible.

  • Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately there are not only different patterns by different aircraft manufacturers but also different patterns by personal or tactical preference. Therefore including a big variatiy would be not an easy task. I am not an expert on this topic but maybe this will help you a little bit: https://aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/24151/airplane-strobe-light-pattern

    As for my current project I am going now with an oversized controller in combination with your pico leds, but maybe for future projects your next controllers could become handy  :-)
