    Not much done on the 212 baffling. Just a bit of a start is all. This is going to be a long tedious task.

    Spent a little more time on the Edge yesterday. Got the ignition mounted, at first I had it ontop of the motor box but I didn't realize it's too tall for the cowl, so I had to relocate it inside of the motor box.

    Hopefully it's far enough from the servo to prevent EMF. Wires all routed appropriately.

    Tech Aero IBEC also installed.

    Just gotta get the cowl cut for mufflers and spark plug cap, then toss the receiver in it and dare I say it's ready to fly.....

    Tanner,

    I have mounted the ignition modules inside many airframes (My 87" edge being closet to thro servo @ 1" away) and NEVER had any problems . Just make sure the shielded plug wires do not touch anything metal. Looks as if you did a great job there:attaboy:.

    Yup no metal to metal contact anywhere, now the challenge is to snake skin all the wires and secure everything in place properly :oblong:

    Raining most the day and weekend so some time spent learning more about the DX8 G2. In the Acro menu there is a "Bipe"model / wing type too! Me like. You can set up spoilerons for those neat short landings. May just have to throw a couple of servos to the top wing of the rock star and make it "Momba" lol

    I did get it out with the fix to the elevator control surface for a test flight and it was "Rock" solid.

    Another 60 hour work week. Lots to do today. But I have managed to make progress on the 212 install and baffling project. Won't be long now.

    Thanks for that good to know. Did not realize that 3W ignition was that sensitive to heat.

    Looking good , what are you using for your baffling. Yes I agree to do a good baffling job takes time.
