I thought he said shipping in October... just hasn't mentioned a year for the last 8 years.

I have been hearing that line for almost a decade...

Shipping next month...

Ready by Oshkosh...

blah, blah, blah...

I waited for YEARS to get a set of these for my -10...never happened. At some point, you just let go and move on.

I will believe it when I see it. They will be ready by April/May of 2XXX.

We should start a pool...

Not sure how you can trust someone who is either incapable of estimating or incapable of delivering. Additionally, I would be pretty concerned about using a pmag on a 540. Slick has had a lot of problems on the 540's with failures attributed to the vibrations encountered in the accessory case or idler gears and has reduced their inspection times for this engine series. I would have great reservations about hanging delicate electronics, like a circuit board/microchips here.

I'm trying to put time proven products into my -10. There will be 4 souls aboard and I'd rather have reliability than efficiency. I'll let someone else beta test newfangled ignitions and I'll adopt once the product is mature.

<Sez the guy with one eMag, that has performed flawlessly, on his RV-6.>

Larry I have twin PMAG's in my 7. When I switch over to one or the other mag I can't even tell it drops. They performance of these over the last 6 years have been flawless.

I wasn't knocking the pmag. Only mentioning that the 540 has a lot more vibration in that area than the 320/360. Therefore, you can't assume past success will apply here. May not be an issue, but they are not the same environment. The 540 vibration issue back there is generally common knowledge.

Bob,

You will need one of these and I happen to have a new, never installed one that I need to sell at a seriously discounted price. Call or email if interested. (or fly over to T67, have lunch and pick it up.

Default PMAG

I have high confidence that they are almost ready with the PMAG and even more high confidence that it will be an awesome product once it is out. I know it has been a long journey for some. Luckily for me Iíve only been seeking them since November 2018 so if they are ready by June/July Iíll be a happy customer.
