I have a rappy 30 with a Toki 40. I had to modify the sensor mount to allow for the engines contour. I can;t seem to get a solid red led after turning the engine over. I measured about 1.5 mm between the magnet and the sensor.
Could I have over heated the sensor when I used a geat gun to shrink the tubing?

Double-check your magnet alignment. It is critical that the magnet be directly above the sensor.

I spent 3 hours yesterday changing the gap and the alignment. I was able to get it to give me a solid red led twice, but upon power up and flashing again it would not go solid. Any thing else to try before I take back to lhs.

How are you rotating it? By hand? If so you need to go back and forth across the sensor very fast and at a steady speed. The best way is to spin the flywheel with the starter. That enables it right away every time.

interesting... I took the engine out and switched the magnet to the hole on the opposite side of the fan , then flipped it over. now I can get it to arm ,but only if i turn the engine over by hand.about 4 to 5 revolutions.

It should arm 100% reliably with the starter then. I had difficulties at first too, and thought I had a problem, but its worked perfectly.

This is exactly what is supposed to happen. It simply takes 4 to 5 turns to arm it.
Using the starter it goes so much faster .

In my book you found the correct setup.

I can get it to arm by hand , but not with the starter. I can tell it is working well. My raptor is a 30 v2 can somene tell me the math so I can set proper rpm? I don't think i did it right. Thanks for the help you guys are the best.

Gear ratio (main/pinion) x headspeed = target RPM.
