I've repaired many RCExl ignitions and all had the regulator chip on the timer board. Usually, the ignition circuits have been of the same design. They are reliable at 4.8 volts, not so much at 8.4. ...

Almost all the ignitions that use the Autoadvance feature have digital pic chips and their max voltage level is 5.5 volts. In order to keep...

Hi Ernie.
I normally recommend a 4.8 voltage from whatever source you are using. In the case of LiPo batteries, I use a short plugin harness to the power lead of the ignition with the correct...

RE: how to attach a magnet to a Webra Prop Hub?

Hi Oddy.
One way is to make a sleeve (tube) that will slip over the prop hub diameter, drill it for both the magnet and a setscrew to make it adjustable. I've done that a few times. Or another...

RE: Little Zenoah grey coil??

Here is a pic of one of the many coils that I have. It is made to be used with a CDI. If this is what you are looking to replace, it will work great. Very low primary resistance, again intended for a...

RE: Little Zenoah grey coil??

I have dozens of Zenoah grey coils but the are all different from the one in your picture. Mine have a red, black, and the Sparkplug lead. Mine are made for CDI ignitions. Maybe I have another type...

RE: CDI gr8flyer55

Jeff, I received some circuit boards in the mail from someone I sold ignition and timer kits to a while back. They are factory made, double sided good plated boards. I think they are very well made...

RE: CDI gr8flyer55

I tried programming a 683 chip with that attached hex file and it just sits there, no action. Not sure what's wrong. Tried jumpers on, jumpers off, no response from the chip. Give it a try Ray and...

RE: CDI gr8flyer55

Rob, looks like you have the timing problem solved, and your ignition is working good with lots of spark energy at high rpms.
Very nice indeed!

RE: CDI gr8flyer55

Hi Stew.
Seems like you are in need of a CDI upgrade for your system. Our CDI is probably adaptable to your system with some minor changes made to it. Ours requires a dedicated power supply that...

Jeff, did you get all the Microchip files in order? I had no problems after downloading the updated device files for the XC8 compiler. I think it was suggested a few pages back about them.

RE: CDI gr8flyer55

Ray, the fixes you made on the excel sheet seem to work good. There are few if any problems in the software except the rpm limitations. So, if it is used on a regular gas engine in the 7,000-9,000...

RE: New Evolution 10cc gas engine

Looking over all the pics they provided for the 10cc engine, it seems any of the 1/4-32 thread plugs should work. There are a lot of web sites offering them.

RE: German Technology - new engine is born !

I for one, can really appreciate the amount of time it must have taken to accomplish the engine build.
Back in the 90's, I built an Echo based 32cc twin. It is nothing fancy. The fact that I built...

RE: CDI gr8flyer55
