A 4 year pirep on my Emag/Pmag equipped RV-9A. I have 48 months, 725 hours on the plane and the 113 Series E-Mag Ignitions now, and I can tell you they have never missed a beat.
I have been running E-Mag electronic ignitions for over five years and almost 700 hours. My O320/160hp runs smoother, burns less fuel and starts easier than it ever did.
Timing is so easy that my “magneto” friends just shake their heads and smile.
Thank you for taking us from 1930’s technology to the 21st century!
We have found our P-Mags to be dependable and economical. . . . Our P-Mags have powered us to the Bahamas many times, to Mexico 4 times, to Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama as well as all over the US.
Update: We’ve been running p-mags on our 320 for about 1,400 hrs now!
When you build an airplane so far away from the US, it’s very important that the companies you deal with have good customer care, and I can truly say that Brad and his crew are among the best! In fact; I’m so pleased, without hesitation at all, I can recommend P-mags!
After a little under 200 hours of flight on my P-Mag, I can honestly tell you that it is the best upgrade I’ve made to my plane. The improvement in performance is best described as “10%”. At any time you can choose to use any combination of the “about 10% increase in power” or the “about 10% better fuel economy”. To me, the usability improvements are just as important as the numerical improvements, With my P-Mag the engine starts MUCH easier. Less cranking with zero oil pressure can only extend the life of my engine. As well, the low speed idle is much. much smoother.
