    Excellent! Do you buy the switch setup as a pre-built unit from the company that sells the Pmags or do you have to engineer and build it yourself?

      Pmag doesn't supply wiring. It's very simple, a SPST toggle switch from aircraft spruce placed on the panel wired between the jumper leads.

        Thanks. Anything you don’t like about the dual Pmag?

          My plane has one Pmag and one regular mag. It's happened twice now on a start up after sitting for a couple weeks it runs really rough on the Pmag, shut it down for a few minutes and start it up and it's fine. Apparently it's due to condensation and isn't uncommon. I wouldn't fly without a Pmag or some other electronic ignition on one side and like having one standard mag for reliability.

            I've been running dual p-mags for a few years and haven't had any trouble out of them. I'd install the same if I were building another.
