    Default rev counter

    Hi,



    Can anyone recommend a rev counter for a dual ignition (Ducati) 503. Hopefully for around the 30 or 40 mark as I don't fancy paying for the Rotax one!



    Cheers

    After all the money you threw at your last craft, you tight wad!!! Tinytachs are still available from some suppliers- I'd try skydrive as Conrad no longer sells them

    Ok so maybe you have a point Ewan, but then half the point of going 503 is to try and limit the enormous spending of money only to sit in the paddock all weekend!!



    Got it running this weekend and nothing flew off or broke so should be rocking for the first meeting!



    Will give Skydrive a ring, thanks guys

    don't go to sky drive they are expensive!



    Light aero spares in exeter! i know are at least 10% cheaper than skydrive, on all gauges senders etc etc.

    Dangerman,



    The premium I paid with Skydrive (2) for this item gave me confidence that they have sold me a 503 ready rev counter, and they have because it works. Before this, I went painfully via the cheap route and got a rotax rev counter for 2 less through an alterntive supplier, which didn't work - both units look the same.



    The 2 premium is worth it against the effort of understanding the minutae of Chinese rev counter design - which possibly has more engineering merit. I'd rather have a working rev counter.



    I only hope that others may learn from my pain.



    Keith

    Keith,



    That is exactly what I thought, which is why a rev counter is winging its way (excuse the pun!) to me from Skydrive as we speak!

    um, the ones light aero spares sell are exactly the

    same as skydrive, but CHEAPER!they come from the states, they are a massive importer of aircraft spares.





    as for the lecture about 'the buying of a rev counter' you really know how to patronise someone! thanks very much for that!

    i was just trying to suggest a very good company, that could save you money! in future i won't bother!



    as for you spending large amounts of money twice, ha ha! skydrive are not the be all and end all of microlight spares suppliers! buying cheaper does not ness mean your buying c**p!
