This lightweight on-board glow driver unit is ideal for model aircraft, helicopters and cars and features an LED on/off switch, a voltage regulator and all leads. Simple to install, a push of the button will ignite your glow plug and keep it on for 15secs. The unit will automatically adjust the output current to ensure the best working temperature for the glow plug.
Although it featues an input voltage range from 6v-12v, and power can be taken from the RX power supply, a 2s Lipoly power supply is advised.

Excellent unit. I wanted to be able to use it anytime not just for starting so set up a tiny servo to press the switch button using the Tx gear switch. A 1300 2S lipo does a days flying and is small enough not to cause a problem.buon sistema di accensione, molto utile al posto del classico accendicandela visto che alimentabile con lipo, l'unica pecca il tempo di accensione visto che garantische corrente per circa 20 sec, il bec molto efficace e funziona bene il cicrcuito molto meglio dei classici accendicandelaInstalled on a Hanger 9 Tango with OS SF 46.
This was definitely worth the money. You can run it from your RX battery pack. Just push the button and wait for the light to go solid, then start the engine. Works really well and its very light weight. I have 2 complaints though, the leads to the ground spade and the plug clip are very short (approx 4 inches) I had to extend them to mount the unit in my plane. Also the board with the button should include a set of standoffs to mount to the fuselage. You will need standoffs to do a clean install.If like me you get tired of those pesky glow ignighters,wondering if they're working,then for the price this is what you want,and can plug right into your received..5 starsGreat bit of gear to have for any nitro user. I mounted mine on a Turnigy Trooper Nitro SCT and after a slight modification and working out where to best place this, it worked perfectly. Highly recommended.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K0xHlZbYyEI bought one of these because I wanted to do glider towing.
The ability to restart at of flight line is important. Press the start button
And there is enough time to position yourself safely, rotate the propeller to the starting position.
Flashing light goes solid
A quick flick and shes away. I have put this on My piper cub and have now bought another
One for my p9 I use a small nano tech two cell lipo.
This is very good product, better than the previous Hobby king product which has problem burning the plug..
I bought this on and so happy with it.
It's cheap, and it works as its intended. I have about 2 gallons worth of fuel run through my Heli with this and it works every time like it's supposed to.This is the worst made piece of electronics i have ever wasted my money on. Worked on and off for about 30 min. Must be a short circuit in the unit, their other glow driver i bought was equally defective.
