Default Electric start system and on board glow system,

hi, I got a 1/4 piper cub with a brand new ASP .61 engine, well I'm a noob and had a little accident with my fingers lol, I know what I did wrong...
so anyways, that was my first ever RC plane. I bought a dynam dc3 to put together and fly. well I was thinking of my piper cub in my garage and saw a video on youtube with a super cub on floats with a starter motor, I believe it was a gas motor and it didn't need a glow driver, I don't know much. well anyways, is there a way I could buy a starter system like Traxxas has for their nitro cars, and somehow have an onboard glow ignitor? i also have a 4 channel receiver, would i have to get a 6 channel receiver or something. if anyone has done this could you list the parts for conversion. I would like to keep my hands away from the prop as much as possible !!

here's the link to some videos that inspired my idea.
