Is there a EI converson Rc format Zenoah?
Was wondering if any one makes a EI kit for the RC format Zenoahs?

Thats actually not an electronic ignition, but a lighter higher spark magneto setup, good for 15% more power across the curve because of lightweight and more powerfull spark. fan is also redesigned for better cooling.

To answer the question - NO, I have not found an ei conversion for the rc format as of yet..... not entirely sure it would make much difference in our application.

It was not just the idea of going to EI but less weight.Peace Out BOBBY D.

I completely understand the weight issue, I have been looking as well, also a lightweight fan decreases rotating mass, and that means more power.... I would like to know how much this external race ignition weighs compared to stock..... keep in mind (roughly) $210 plus shipping is salty for a couple of ounces...."Need More Parts"

interesting.

the unknown is how well does it cool. One of the strongest points of the RC format motor is that you really have to try hard to overheat it. The stock fan/flywheel, as heavy as it is, moves a ton of air with its dual row finning.

this one is much lighter...........at $180 its the price of a complete CY motor though

I agree, be very very cautious of lightened flywheels and such, most of them sacrifice cooling for weight. and the fins are usually the sacrificial lamb... you could save more weight in other areas such as throttle servo to a mini, v2 muffler instead of others twice the weight, pick your servos based on weight as a factor, smaller flight battery etc. etc.

I have sat and pondered what a puh motor with ei and all the above mods would net on the gasser, but I end up with the same conclusion....

it already flies great so why bother.... you could shave close to a pound if you got really down to the nitty gritty, but once again......
