Electronic ignition...which one?


Recommended Posts

Hi Canardiens,


One of my future update plans for my COZY (3) is changing one of the magnetos (2 Bendix) over to an Electronic Ignition system. I have the LYC O-235 engine installed. Have a few questions for you guys concerning the choice of electronic IGN:


* Which type of Elec. IGN should I go for, with the O-235-C2A engine on my COZY ? Believe LASAR is not available for the O-235...


* I find Xaviers Lightspeed interesting, is the extra money worth to buy the PLUS version of the PlasmaII ?


* Still about the Lightspeed, Which one is preferable, the Direct Crank sensor or the Hall effect module version?


* Has anybody of you experience with Autogas and Electronic IGN? Yes I know there is a lot of discussion about Autogas...please keep this for another time. Would Elec IGN be better or worse with Autogas use?


* Any real figures on the installation time? Believe the Direct crank system takes more time...correct?


* All other info regarding ELectronic IGN systems more than welcome!



Save flying to all of you,






Flying was my first love and it will be my last one!

I have the Lightspeed aviation ign and 1 mag. I also burn auto gas - no problems in 175 hrs. The hall effect module is the best way to go. Simple installation. I did have some initial probelms with the coax between the modules and coils. I made new ones of my own and no problems. It is also easy sytem to troubleshoot. A real plus.
