Default Baja 5B and Spektrum Telemetry

Hi Guys,

Does anyone have any photos of how and where they installed the tachometer to the gas engine on the Baha 5B SS? The Spektrum manual on ly covers Electric and Nito motors.

I think the sensor strip goes on the flywheel and the sonsor piece is mounted on the engine mount.

As for mounting it on a gasser (Not a nitro engine), I do not know, I never tried to mount any telemetry stuff on a gasser before.

not a spectrum but nomadio, not gas motor but outboard nitro motor but the principle is the same.

the magnet was glued to the flywheel(see the pic. the flywheel is the topmost of the engine),actually, two magnets are installed exactly at opposite side..the rpm sensor is not installed during the shot but its suppose to be in the side just millimeter gap with the magnet..hope it help somehow.
