Default Scratch Built Ignition???

RC Modeler magazine has an article from 1980 in their archives. You need to be a subscriber to look at it
It is a circuit for a Capacitor Discharge ignition. Its original puprpose was for running the older ignition motors on it. It looks like it might adapt. ???
The bad part about most of these setups is the lack of timing advance. One of the things that make the newer elec ignitions seem so nice is the ease of strarting partly because the timing is backed off at low RPM. Of course you could go with some type of throttle coupled advance setup like guys used to run

I to keep hopeing something comes up because that is something else I like to work on (electronics)


I dont know if it will work for everyone but here is a link,
