I would like to also add:

In a 4-stroke R/C engine, CDI W/methanol produces about 6% more power than glow ignition on the same fuel. Gasoline produce about 15% less power than a glow ignition engine of the same displacement running metheanol. The net gain for CDI/methanol over CDI/gasoline in a given displacement engine is about 22%.

The CDI engine on methanol will run about 22% longer on a given fuel amount.

Reliable idle speed will be about 300 RPM lower on CDI.

One flip starts will be the norm & kick back will be a thing of the past.

Be for warned that if you are lazy in yiyr flipo technique you will get your knuckels beat up when the engine fires while turning it over slowly.

I have or I am in the process of converting all of my Saito engines to CDI.

Here is what is involved in a typical CDI conversion.

A few videos of my CDI/glow fuel conversions.
FA180HC Video 0001 (4 min 36 sec)

Saito 300 Twin With C&H Ignition, 800 RPM Idle (8 min 9 sec)

You can get CDI system made specifically for your engine here.
