Around here not many places to fly from and the place I fly, no one shows up when I am around, they are old retired dudes who fly weekday mornings.

I got out in the heat and sun yesterday mowing the lawn and helping a buddy work on a garage door. I'm still spent today from it.

Also servo chatter can be caused on two different fields one the servo is super sensitive and is always centering or two the servo was a real piece of crap and doesn’t center very well and chatters. But what you have brought up I have never heard before and I use that combination all the time. Also I guess we shell keep an ear out to here what the new radio glitch problem is for why my plane crashed.
I agree,
but I forgot to say that the analog throttle servos in question were haunting the throttle up and down so the RPM were not constant, it sounds as the throttle stick was being pumped up/down/up/down. this happened on landings and climb outs.

as for me I used analog and digitals together on many flights and not have a problem.

thanks for your input !!

No Sir! This engine runs really well, even with the larger-than-recommended 18x6 prop!

I must admit I have never used digital servos. I don't fly high performance aircraft and I was lucky enough to get a large lot of analog servos from a friend who had a windfall and spent some of it on putting all digital servos in his airplanes. That's right I'm cheap, tighter than bark on a tree!

Well, if you cross the streams, it could cause a parallel cross over to another dimension, which is a bad think and hurts all twinkies.

If you have bad leads I could see it happening. I remember back in the day when I was a wet behind the ears kid doing my own mechanical work on my 64 International P/U to fix a miss. The plug wires were bad and the spark would arc between two of them where they cross. Which leads me to the bad lead comment. Ah you never forget your first vehicle or the nightmares it caused!!!

You know it was a good cleansing shock when you have to dry yourself off.

One day I had gone out to check the water in the horse trough. I leaned between the fence tape, had my hand on the metal trough and my thigh just barely touched the lower tape. Have any idea what kind of pain a 100 mile fence charger used on less than 1 mile of tape produces when laid across the thigh? I had a WELT! Needless to say, I avoid doing dumb crap like that anymore.

Its education for sure! I remember one of my high school buddies use to stick wires under a couple of plug wires and drop them in the water to shock fish. I don't remember if he caught much.

Ever seen a horse fly? I did, flew about a foot straight up when he touched his nose to the tape. Then he stood there wide eyed wondering ***? Then, he did it again. Never went to the fence again after that. LOL

Had a van once that had a miss. Put a new coil on it got worse.
So frustration got the better of me, so I backed it outside and went to shut it off looked under the hood one more time and looked like a light show during the Fourth of July. Welcome to the world of high Energy electron Ignition and cheap plug wires

Coil failures are very rare compared to plug wires breaking down. Wide plug gaps can actually cause insulation breakdown at just about any weak point in the system.

A case where more complexity actually improved the reliability.

So back to my original question
182 with CH ignition guy says if you swap the leads it won’t run. How can that be?

The 182 is an odd fire engine. First cylinder fires, crank rolls 180 degrees, second cylinder fires. Crank now turns 540 to fire #1 and begin next cycle. This is unlike the even fire, boxer type that fires every 360 degrees, it can fire both cylinders together with a waste spark on the opposing cylinder.

so the ignition has a delay built in so it doesn’t fire at the bottom of the intake stroke?

aa, don't worry about that one, cause I just watch a video last night and these guys were putting a 10-71 blower on a huge 1,100 HP Chevy BB and the ding-dongs had put the distributor in 180% off LOL, plus they had that 6,000 blower setting on cardboard on the dusty floor.... crazy

Dave you are looking fit and happy, good to see. From a comment you made years ago i seem to remember that you liked fishing for bass. Only american bass fishers i've seen were two crazy assed dudes drag racing each other upriver to their favourite spot.

ps jim i never knew that cleetus was a real name so i looked it up. Comes from a greek word that means 'to come forth' ...takes me way back to watching that movie with jon voight in it.
