Electronic Ign question

The electronic ussually replaces the non impulse coupled mag.  If you don't have an impulse coupled mag it probably doesn't matter.  Most people seem to fire them 'tops and bottoms' with the EI firing the bottoms and the mag firing the tops.  The EI puts out more voltage and seems to be better at keeping the plugs clean, and the bottom plugs tend to be the ones that need better cleaning.

Have P-mags solved their issues for our planes yet?

i have never had a problem, with the pmag.  i have it on a 0-235 c1b. ,, and  having the built in alternator..is a real  comfort.

Dave,
I have over 100 hours on my set of P/E Mags and so far, still going strong.  The factory asked me to send them in for evaluation which I will do next week.  I'll let you know what happens.

How's your new canard?
