Designed for Ka-6, Ka-8 and ASK13 gliders.
Measuring at 60mm diameter (hole diameter 32mm), 7mm high, the AeroFlash RUDOLPH NoseFlasher is extremely elegant and streamlined and fits around the nose-hole of the Ka6, Ka8 and ASK13 gliders, that don’t really have a good solution to install a CanopyFlasher. Just like the FuselageFlasher, it’s made out of a super clear UV-resistant epoxy. Its small size does not say much about its ability: with 16, yes sixteen extremely bright red or white CREE™ LEDs (±7500-8500 Lumen!), the strobe is very well visible at distances up to 3km.
Only one small hole of 4mm is required for the cable.
RUDOLPH NoseFlasher set comes together with AeroFlash Fusion (LITE / FLARM):
Fusion – power box – the heart of the Rudolph NoseFlasher
A compact, sturdy aluminium enclosure fits everything Rudolph NoseFlasher requires: power supply, data processing and overheat protection. Mount it at your preferred location.
Rudolph NoseFlasher – Fusion systems are available in two different variants:
Fusion LITE – stand-alone version, NOT connectable to Flarm or Nexus. Flashes continuously with 3-flashes per 1,5 second.
Fusion FLARM – connectable to Flarm (1x RJ12 IGC port). Switchable enhanced AUTO-, Always-ON and HAZARD mode logic.
Red or white LEDs? Your choice…
Let’s explain the pros and cons:
+ Better visibility of a white glider against a grey/white background. This is the most dangerous situation. Red clearly stands out.
+ Red means danger.
– Slightly less brightness (±7500 lumen) than white LEDs.
+ Slightly better brightness (±8500 lumen) compared to red LEDs.
+ Better visibility against a brown/green background.
– Reduced visibility of a white glider against a grey/white background (in clouds, haziness, snowy terrain, etc).
