Why would want to JN?

Don't know about others but starting on one mag is a loft softer with the rotax also with shutdown always one shut off just before the other seems a fair bit gentler

There were also issues with Rotax mags not firing at low RPM. You only found out one had failed when the second failed (starting on both mags).

 

I now start on alternate mags.

 

A few threads on this forum about it I think.

 

Personally, I don't think you can beat individual mag (toggle) switches and a starter key/button..

The ACS switch comes with instructions for starting with only one active mag, which is the usual configuration on lycoming engines.

 

If I remenber correctly there is a link wire to connect to another terminal - so it earths out the unwanted mag when the key is turned to "start"

Terrific Jetboy, that is what I wanted to hear.
