Hello,
i planned to instal on my gyro a Red Lion display for rotor tach. it seams to be a lot used in gyro community. i read the specification and it could be couple with "MAGNETIC OR LOGIC TYPE SIGNAL INPUTS" as it written.
>Could you provide me part number of sensor that you use with your red lion ?
>for magnetic i see that it exist a "In-Line Amplifier" for magnetic sensor, does something you use on your gyro ?

thanks a lot for your answer.

That is a:

Standard Motor Products LX113 Ignition Pick Up​


You use one of the two pickups that you will get when you order that part. Mounted closely to the ring gear.

Yes, mounted VERY VERY closely to the ring gear. As closely as possible without the blade touching any tooth of the ring gear.

G'day All from Down Under,

The battery in the Rotor Tacho I bought from Ernie has died. Are these still available from somewhere, or what is a suitable replacement please?

Thanks.

I suggest you get a battery with the tabs on it. You then solder these tabs to the circuit board. I got the er17335 battery when I replaced the one in the red lion tach.
