You need to give us way more details than that.

Bonjour,,

 

If you look the Beacom lamps outside on the cabin at the top and bottom you can see that the flashes are not at a steady pace.

You have two or three flashes and nothing for three or four seconds but without regularity.

This problem with the periodic flashing of the anti collision lights is as old as FSX or older.  Vary your frame rate just by one or a few to find a setting that minimizes the loss of beacon if that is your goal.  The effect of lost flashes is most pronounced below 21 fps but since we are talking periodic timing a problem at 20 is probably the same problem at any harmonic.  I played with my 20 frame rate lock and found the least number of lost flashes at 25.  I'll probably go back to 20 because I don't have much interest in anything outside the cockpit.

Thank you for the answer I do not remember to have noticed this problem before.
