Although a little more involved than a standard tailBeacon, the tailBeaconX installation is still much simpler than comparable equipment. The tailBeaconX replaces the rear position light on the tail of the aircraft using the existing power and ground wires.

The tailBeaconX does require a serial connection to a control head on the panel of the aircraft, so a pair of wires will need to be installed from the panel of the aircraft to the tail.
