Default RC EXL Ignition Conversion 3W

Hi all,


was hoping someone may have some experience and knowledge in converting a 3W Twin Spark motor to a RC EXL igntion.

I have purchased two RC EXL (3W version) ignition units which are for the later series 3W Motors (2 magnets in prop hub). These ignitions have four wires on the sensor cable, much like the multi cylinder ignition units RCEXL make. See photos below.

The 3W motor I would like to convert is a later version with the 2 magnets in the prop hub.

I am unsure how to connect the hall sensor to both ignition units (being that the motor is twin spark with four spark plugs in total).

Is there a special wire harness like a Y lead I can make to do this?

Alternatively can i use the original Twin Spark filter with these ignition units and if so what is the wiring order?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
