So this is a strange one that was driving me nuts. I've been flying with this set of landing gear / lights forever with no issues. I stock up on the Dollar Tree "Sunbeam" brand of AA's (4 for $1). Well last visit they only had Panasonic "AAA" (3 for $1) so I grabbed a some. I started to have compass errors so I did the whole trouble shooting thing testing each component and accessory. I took of the landing lights and the problem went away. But them back on and compass error right after take off again... Hmm.. After a while I said "What the heck?" and changed the batteries to an old Sunbeam set. I'm still going to run some more trials -- but **** -- what a strange issue!
