I will check out the videos on cap replacement as I just misunderstood the process. I use heat shrink on a lot of my in plane connections, so am familiar with It. I have a box of various sizes and...

I wonder if the best solution would be a totally new module? I have never been the best at fixing electronics or soldering. I think that is what I will do to eliminate the entire unit. The price,...

It is a good thought, but the ignition module was sent to Valley View along with the engine. They found the magnetic pickup to be bad and replaced it. I would think that the running problem would...

I must say that I am very disappointed after reading this thread. Just kidding.

I am having the same issues that you are with my DLE20 on a Top Flite Cessna 182. On the test bench at our field...

I wish it had, I would never have left the ground. I was able to taxi it out and take off which went well. As I got airborne, the problems started. I was able to keep it in the air by idle, then...

Well, I stuck with the DLE opto kill switch. After moving wires around several times, I think I got it. My biggest problem has been trying to use a 6 channel rx and still hook up the kill switch 2...

Since writing the above, I have been looking at other planes in my hangar. Instead of using the Opto Kill Switch for DLE engines, I think I am going to switch it out. I have used the RCATS 100x in...

Probably should have mentioned that I reset the carb settings before I retested the engine. However, I will do so again to ensure the adjustments are where they are supposed to be.

After repairing all damage, and having the nose wheel strut re-milled, got the plane back together. This time, no interior until testing and flying are successful. Got to the...

Thanks racer.... I will check on those I already have. They may very well be digital. So adding one more is no big deal. The irony is that the ignition box is next to the servo. It's where it needs...
