Cool BP igniters

Electric match now has the 1 foot length available for their BP igniters.

I cut down the 3 ft lengths to less than 1 ft. Used three in an Estes Ranger clone on three C6 motors. All lit and it was a great flight. DARS uses a 12v system, so I need to see how they work on 6 or 9 volts.
The only advantage to the 1 ft is that I do not have use for the extra wiring left over. Savings is only 2 cents over the 3 ft igniters. Recommend them, regaredless.

Thanks, I've been wondering when those would become available. Just put in an order!
