O'Donnel products are intended for the R/C car market, not aircraft, so if you're looking for a glow plug for your R/C car, great. If not, ...

I see Merlin has the old Glowbee style flat wound element type plugs. Interesting...I had decent results with those 35 years ago.

Yeah, 35 yrs ago was when I stopped my C/L flying. I just got some 1/2 A plugs from Merlin for my AP Wasp engine for my Baby Flite Streak. Going back to my roots before I get to old.
