Hmm, not sure. I think I'll have to order one even though they're back-ordered and give it a shot! Reviews seem to be great with very low draw. Thanks for the link kaotik!

Need to find out what the timing advance is before you order. As those are airplane motors and might be setup different. Yes I know ours are planes motors as well. But just my thought.

Dx7 With Ion Power Supply. Why use anything else.

The timing on the G20 is adjustable with the bracket supplied with the kit.

G20 ignition
I am running the Hanson ignition and the current draw is very conservitive. I am running a 2 cell 2600 lipo with a 4.8 volt regulator. Each flight uses about 300 ma. I have tried the CH ignition also. They are both lighter than the Zenoah unit. They all use the same sensor connector.

how would you adjust the timing with the slider, I thought that was just to lign it up with the magnet!

Do proctologists chew there finger nails when there nervouse?

Thats what I thought, however the Zenoah instructions say that it is adjustable, unless it was lost in translation. I was thinking that the sensor can be adjusted freely up and down which would allow you to cock the sensor counter clockwise or clockwise allowing for a few degrees in both direction of adjustment. Maybe I'm wrong but, but it was the only way that I could think of adjusting the timing assuming the instructions are correct.

i think it alows the sensor to be moved closer to the magnet, this would trigger it sooner because the magnetic force is greater when it is close, thus advancing the timming.

Just my theory and it may be incorrect, But how do we know where to set it, I have mine positioned about center in the bolt holes.

However the ignition modual does advance and retard timing electronically, I think it idles at about 5deg btdc and perhaps 32 deg btdc at full rpm

incase anyone is wondering
Btdc= Before top dead center

I forgot to mention, that as far as timing is concerned, that will be dictated by the placement of the magnet on the fan, which is set from the factory. So, even if the timing requirements are different between a plane and a heli, that will be controlled by either the prop hub or fan respectively.
