Default Evolution 58 ignition amp draw..

What is the amperage draw on the newer ignition with the choke servo?

The reason I ask is that I get 3 to 4 flights before getting a low voltage reading from the led.
But the battery is at 7.4 volts at 1amp test. Does the ignition draw more.

I'm running 2 cell lion 2600mah.

Check the back panel of your ignition if its got a P marked on it you need 3xLixx or 9 Nixx, I find my draw off the battery is about 250mah per flight using the auto choke function.

I am quite sure it is the P-version if it flashes a warning at 7.4 Volts.
3xLiPo or 8xNiMH is needed for P-type
2xLiPo or 6xNiMH is needed for L-type and S-type ignitions
