Default Glow Engine Question

How do you start up a glow engine? I know RC kits have glow engine. Like how do you spin a propellor safely. Thanks.

PT;
Do you have a Model Aircraft club in your area? Reason I ask is I can tell you how, but if you've never done it before it would be alot safer to have someone show you.

If your LHS can't help you then maybe the Chamber of Commerce for your town would have a listing. If not let me know what town your in and I can do a search for you.

If you really want a written version of the in's and out's of starting an engine for the first I can still do it. So ask again and I'll be happy too. But there is alot of vaariables to consider from and 049-Large Gassers so I would need to know what type motor you want to learn.

Ptarmigan,

Take a look at this article

posted on Howard Sullivan's website.

There is no better way to explain it.
