  1. No. Though all LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) devices share the same exact outside profile. A window acting as transmitter and another window acting as receiver, allowing continuous beams to be sent out with the other window always receiving. Some devices incorporate UV/IR filter glasses on each of these windows, others use one UV/IR filter covering both windows similar to our other unit while inside there are still two separate elements to act as a transmitter/receiver.
  2. If using a “Switched” audio input, a dedicated circuit breaker or one that is Push/Pull type is not required. Even if a “Switched” input is not used, a dedicated toggle switch can be used in lieu of a dedicated circuit breaker. In the above two scenarios; a non-essential circuit breaker can be used to share the power of the unit regardless of the CB type/limit. The unit internal over-current protection is set to just above 1A. Unit uses < 200mA of peak power @12V or < 100mA Peak power @24V
  3. Per the manual, if the unit is installed in an exhaust soot stream, a periodic dry wipe may be necessary. Wet wipe (water only) can also be used. Unless wet landings are accompanied by dirt/mud, some water droplets on the glass viewing window is fine. The visible black glass is not the actual laser element lens. It's a protection glass layer and also to block UV along with all light < 800 nm wavelength.
  4. The external shipping box is actually the standard brown corrugated box.
  5. Very sorry about this! I have your tracking number now and will raise it up with our UPS account rep today. It's odd they did not put it at the front door as usual, unless due to the storm! I will email you, and we won't wait till April to get you sorted. Any chance you like to watch Gold Rush and ended up with a metal detector . If you find it that way, the feeling is probably the same as finding gold. Regards Nidal
  6. Yes, fly normal approach as usual. There is a relationship between the approach itself and how long the airplane stays in ground effect to lose energy for a smooth landing. Pilots who are always performing hard landings (or harder than what they prefer) could mean flaring too early, or they are forcing the airplane down out of ground effect before it wants to come down. Some may hear a higher number then touchdown, this is harder than it should be. The system skipped callout on a number because the time it took for them to touchdown was shorter than the callout duration of the prev
  7. I want to answer a question that keeps coming up regarding what is the best technique to use. Everyone will end up developing their own technique depending on how they are used to performing landings and their energy management during the approach. It may work that someone follows someone else's technique for the last few feet, but this means they also need to follow their technique for the approach as well, regarding indicated speed, descent rate and such. If you look at the “low approach” portion of the night video (first post of this thread), you can hear the system keep repeati
  8. Don, pls check your spam folder, a couple of emails were sent to you today 2:50 pm central.
  9. Great. Thank you. It will be the default audio file now.
  10. We are planning to look into this. However, several customers in EU said they are able to do it “Per registration”. When we started to receive orders from overseas for the certified LHS unit, we sent out an email reminding these customers that “so far” countries outside the US are not treating NORSEE certification similar to STC and to talk with their mechanic or EASA safety inspector about this before we ship out. They came back to us saying the shop can submit a request for the installation individually per registration (similar to a major alteration request with the FAA) and th
  11. 2’ & 24 inches. As below it it shows installed height: 0. So this is first time before initial setup which is needed. As you figured it out, when you put 0, it reset the setup value allowing you to fine tune it. now measure vertically between the glass and ground and input that number. Anything within a 1” reading, system will take the internal reading, higher difference means the unit is installed at an angle which is ok, and system triangulate and gets its own installed angle to be used subsequently. Regardless of the number you put, system will show 0 afterwards indicating that
  12. Yes. The manual is not sent with the product. It’s only available online. If you look at the lower end of the product page itself, right above the dimensions diagram, you can find the full install manual there. Here is a direct link to it as well https://landingheight.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Installation-Users-Guide-LS-100-X_A3.pdf
  13. Personally, I think it won't matter to the insurance rate. Give Mr. Parker a call and ask him if you invest in a system that tells you the gear is still up when at a low air speed or low AGL, how much they will lower your rate to recoup your investment. Maybe not much or maybe just enough where you get that investment back over many, many years. And I think they are also counting on pilots installing or adding more safety systems not to just lower their insurance rate, but mainly for the extra aid or chance to save their lives and loved ones. There are probably only a handful (if not l
  14. On another forum (*cough Piper cough*) some asked if there is any benefit of this system for small GA aircraft and wanted other members' opinions. At the risk of my reply sounding like a sales pitch, I shared at that form some pages of a safety evaluation study we internally prepared just as “food for thoughts”. I wanted to share it here as well as some may find it interesting reading material. First some benefits, then some actual statistics by AOPA & FAA. Runway Width/Length: Being used to a local runway of certain width then visiting an unfamiliar runway th
