RE: G26EI and RCXL Ignition Problem
I'm back from a short Gulf Shores vacation. I just knew it was going to be a good day.... or so I thought.
I received and installed my new hall sensor. Fueled up the plane and still..... same problem!!!!!! One thing I noticed was the screws mounting the hall sensor weren't very tight. I did notice what could be a backfire when trying to start. It would still start as before, just won't run more than a few seconds.
To recap, it'll run with the stock Zenoah ignition. A new RCEXL ignition has been installed. Fearing a possible bad one, I removed the same ignition from a working G20. Same problem. I've removed everything from the ignition circuit with only a 4 cell, ignition and engine. Same problem.
Since I noticed a possible backfire and the hall sensor screws were not tight at all, could the sensor be out of alignment? I've not seen any method for aligning the sensor. When I installed the new one, I just used a business card for a spacer and pushed the sensor up to it. It's should be perpendicular.
