Default Viggen Anti-Collision Beacons

Forgive me if I am blind, but I don't recall actually seeing either the top or borrow beacons in the pre-beta videos. The light from the lower beacon is prominently displayed on external store, but I have never noticed the lights. I am reasonably sure I have never seen the top beacon on as well. Have any of you?

You can see the top one spinning in this video.

I am also almost completely certain that there's a video with a very zoomed in shot of it working, just can't seem to find it right now.

Thanks. I just watched Bunyap's 5th video and the location of the top beacon is clear as day. Must have never seen it turned on. Yeah, I'm one of those guys that likes to follow general lighting rules, and does flight control checks during startup.

So having just watched the entire livestream from this past weekend, the lack of a proper light effect for the beacons is triggering the OCD side of me. In the stream we frequently see that the lights are bright enough to illuminate aircraft around you. Yet there is no light visible from the beacons themselves. I know it's mostly a minor detail, but immersion....

i think the interdiction video shows it off better. the beacon does seem to be missing the actual light itself but the illumination works well

Update- I contacted LN via Facebook and was told LN that they are aware of this issue and hope to have if fixed by launch day.

Also noticed this in every video out there, makes the beacons to look very odd as there is no light coming from them...also the effect of casting light seems a bit overdone, like a police car imho.
