I know this has probably been debated alot,but I would like to here from people who are successfully using pcm with ignition gas engines.With todays radios we really shouldn't get ignition noise if all is done right.My opinion.
Thanks Jack

I have used JR PCM with gas engines for the past 8 years with no problems, noticed one hit when the retracts cycled down in flight.

Some club members are using Hitec FM with good results with gas engines.

I do what works for me and gives me the confidence in my equip.

PCM and FM rx's is like the Ford - Chevey debate, a lot of opinions but not much scientific data.

PCM/nonPCM??? I think it boils down to what you want your plane to do when it takes an R/F hit. Personally I like it to continue doing what I last told it to, not making some excursion of it's own making.

The other feature of a PCM Rx is the safety of being able to program the throttle go to idle or off in the event of a hit. In the pits or taxiing that's a real plus.

I too have used PCM exclusively on my gasoline engined planes for years with total success. Tex.
