Make your 2 or 4-stroke glow engine's idle more solid and reliable with this fully programmable, easy to use on-board glow driver. Installs in minutes, and provides power to your glow plug at any throttle setting you choose. Throttle position can be reset as often as desired, and is maintained in memory even when power to the model is removed completely. Glow plug power is provided by the included 1.2 volt 2500mAh Ni-Cad battery, so it will not drain your receiver's battery pack. The 5mm orange LED can be mounted anywhere on your model to indicate when the glow plug is "hot", and the high-quality glow plug boot is connected to a flexible silicone wire to ensure reliable operation. Reversible for any configuration or throttle setup.

Programmable On-Board Glow Driver
This circuit can be connected to the throttle channel along with your throttle servo using a common servo "Y", or it can be plugged into any spare channel that is mixed to the throttle channel. The position of the throttle stick at which the glow plug comes "ON" is set using the small pushbutton switch on the main circuit board, is fully reversible for any servo configuration, and it can be reset as often as desired. The single sub-C size 2500mAh Ni-Cad battery can be recharged using almost any Ni-Cad or Ni-MH charger, or you can add a short wire and Deans-type "T" plug to any common glow driver charger. Especially helpful on models that have an engine that is inverted, it will keep your engine from flooding at low throttle settings, giving you greater confidence when landing. (I have one on ALL my warbirds!) Instructions are included for easy installation and use.
