After flying my airplane for about 10 hours I noticed that the lenses on the wingtips were starting to deform from the heat that the little Hide-a-flash strobe heads generate. See a picture here. I guess I'll probably make another pair of lenses and then move the strobe head back to the aft part of the wingtip cutout. I just never thought that those heads would generate that much heat.
