I appear to have a problem with the pulse timing of my Brillie...even though I got it running, this cannot be optimal.. the first current pulse is a bit late and the second current pulse would seem unnessesary and even couterproductive. Check out my slow mo video
and the scope trace... and I took a picture of my contacts. Anybody any thoughts?

The pulse must appear just before the pendulum passes through the center point, then its velocity is faster and the magnetic pulse has the greatest effect. a delayed or additional impulse will have a damping effect.
