This on-board glowplug driver is perfect for all nitro engines which if used with an RC switching device will allow the glowplug to be driven at low rpm's making the engine ultra reliable and smoother running at idle speeds, especially good on the larger 4 stroke engines.

The unit is a compact, lightweight electronic unit that requires a 6~32V input and puts out a steady 1.5V at 4amps. Very easy and simple to fit, please see attached manual under the "Files" tab.

Features:
• Compact and lightweight
• Easy to set up and operate

I use this on my monstertruck mgt8 ,my nitro motor never stops and is very more stable on idle ,i use this on a 7.4v lipo 2000 mah that i use same time for my 3 servos .but for starting the engine i use a normal glowplugigniter 1,2v .after it started i turn on this glowplugdriver with a simple onboard switch , now my nitro motor is much more reliable and never stops, i have 8 running seccions and never burnd a glowplug ,i leave it always on but i use a very cold glowplug to compensate the heat .fantastic !!!

This thing is perfect for all nitro cars .i have a mgt8 monstertruck 1/8 and is never stalls .the motor never cuts of or stops .this thing is a must have for all nitro cars and planes .but for starting the motor its not powerfull anough ,then you need the normal glower on 1.2 volt .bye this and you will never have nitro engine problems again !!!! Even on very rich or lean the motor turn perfect and regularely ! I did 3 tanks with this on my monstertruck and my nitro motor didnt stop one single time !!! This is a very good product !!! Now my monstertruck is a blast !!!

Ultra léger et très pratique, couplé à un switch de 6A et un Lipo 2S de 500mA, un petit mixage sur l'émetteur pour activer la bougie uniquement au ralenti.
Ultra pratique, ralenti très bas, super pour les atterrissages.

Some nice circuit diagrams are there in Files tab, which would help you understand the product. I have added a switch and it comes on when the switch is on, doesn't stay on forever. that would be my recommendation

Input 6-32 volts ... not true,
this product does not work either 7.4 .. with 3 cell lipo lights ...
wrong information

Since the Version 4A quit heavy equipment. The 3A worked very well with 2S Life. Now I need at least a fully charged 2S Lipo (works only for a short time till the V drops down to ~7V) or a 3S Lixx.
Now I have to carry much more weight for the batterie .....

PLEASE change again to 3A...

Just got 2 of these, first I thought I was really unlucky in receiving 2 faulty ones, the plug would light if not screwed into the engine (holding against the engine case) but not actually in the engine (tested with amp meter), both ignitors were the same, I was using a fully charged 2S lipo battery so far exceeding the minimum required voltage of 6.0v!, it was only when I went to a 3S battery that everything started to work, it would seem that these 4A versions like a little more voltage than the older ones! Using on a 3S battery though they are great.

Ich habe 2 Stck davon. Beide funktionieren sehr gut. Beim Betrieb mit 2S (800mAh) Glht die Kerze mit der gleichen Farbe wie mit einer 1,5 Volt Batterie, dabei wird ca. 0,43 Ampere vom Akku gezogen. Beim Betrieb mit 3S (2200mAh) Glht die Kerze identisch und vom Akku werden ca. 0,24 Ampere gezogen. Je grer die Spannung, um so geringer der Strom. Eine tolle Sache, mit einem 3S-500mAh kann ich locker eine Stunde voll durchglhen (ich entlade ca. 50pcnt).
Man braucht halt noch einen Schalter, entweder nur zum Starten, oder um den Motor (Sprit mit wenig Nitro und 4 Takt) bei niedriger Drehzahl sicher am laufen zu halten.

that thing work great, I use one with 2 cell lipo and a electronic switch on the throttle channel , and other with a micro switch attached to the throttle servo with a plastic lever , went the servo go to lower throttle the lever turn the igniter on

This is an excellent product. It puts out a full 1.5V which is perfect for starting. I use my on board glow igniter in my field kit - supplied from a 3S LiPo. I have never had much success with the "Glow Stick" type of glow ignitor as they run at 1.2 V and are marginal with inverted motors which tend to flood the glowplug.
If you are into electronic brain surgery, you can "hack" the circuit board by removing the 5K resistor, and fitting fly leads to a variable pot. This gives you a variable voltage power supply eg 1V to 1.6V. Much more reliable than a conventional power panel, and less prone to blowing plugs. See Files for details of chip.
