Ok,
Was a little disapointed finding point in there. For now I timed the points (with ohms meter) and when the F mark is lined up. And then its indeed .20 gap. Gap was less so ignition was a little off. (too late)
This mod you mentioned, will this still use the points for timing??

The mod will not use the points, go to your local lawn mower shop, they will have the mod you need. Bobby

It's a littler square alum device that's about 1" in size that has two wires coming out of it, one ground and one going to your coil, real simple. Bobby

Hi Kevin,
Thats the reason I got second toughts about the sale, I saw Kalt on the engine....arghh. (I got the email from the seller from the former owner, who said everything is stock?)
But the seller dropped his price so I took the chance.
Right now I've put 9252 on pitch, nick and roll, there's a 3001 on the throttle and I changed the CSM 540 gyro with a 9253 into an 401 with a 9254.
I hoop that will finish the drifting. Nice fast servo,s those 9252's.
I hope the battery will keep up with them (sanyo nicad c-cells 2100 mah)
...
...Just a tought... how can I power this heli up? Will a 26 cc kit fit and work with the 197 Walbro carb. and Zimmerman exhaust???
Eric.

Same as Revman did in France!
Help me where can I get this from the internet.

Order a 643 carb from Larry Bergen, then go to ebay and order from The Captain Never Sails Shop ....Mower stuff for 18 bucks and solid state ignition on the way , thats what I have done. As for more power , I'm going to bumpd up the compression a little and reduce ths squish to 0.4 mm but a the mo I have plenty off power for what I can used.

Ahh,
That's a nice offer!!
I'am afraid I don't know what to ask for: A zenoah engine?? I'll bet they never heard of that.
This mudule you talk about, how does it get its timing? Is there a rotor included?
With cars you get an optic trigger and a kind of rotor for the light sensor.

Hey, Bobby and Kevin,
I just picked-up the ignition module I ordered at the local mower shop. It's called ign. module Nova.
Where do you put the module? Manual says in a well vented area.
Another thing, Manual says: this mod is not recommended for use on engines equiped with batt. ignition or flywheels with multiple magnets.
Do they mean the iron pieces in the flywheel?? I have (must check for sure) at least 4 iron "cores" in the flywheel.
Do I have the wrong one?
Eric.

Hi Kevin,
Where did you put the module? On frame or on engine or in engine.

By the way Kevin,
Your also into g22 (kalt/zenoah).
Is it possible to upgrade with a g23 cylinder/ piston set (for that extra power). Or better, can a upgrade be done with a 26cc combo??
Is it worth it?
I use max. 8 degree pitch.
Lots of questions,
Eric

Hi,
I fixed the ignition module, and i'ts running ok.
Should I open the gap of the plug(say 0.8 or more tenth m/m). If there's more power to spark, opening the sparkplug gap should ignite the fuel better.

High Eric, dont know about other up grades fitting , but was thinking as the doller is so low just to by a new motor> Reading here for me a std 231 would do and is only 260 euro, peanuts compaired to my plank four strokes. Got a 643 cab on it now and that is about 1.5 mm bigger in diameter so may get more go then. I pull 11degree constant with no bogging on my 680 fraya blades, so power seems enough............but as you say more is more. Got pred gasser muffler coming so will se if that gives more zip too .
