Default RE: Glow Plug


ORIGINAL: Pylonracr



I am finishing a Little Toni with an OS91 Ducted Fan engine. What glow plug are people using with DF engines with props on them? I plan to prop it to about 19000 on the ground, which is a little low for these engines, but I am not looking for the last MPH and I think the engine might last a little longer. I plan to run 30% with some caster oil added to bring it up to about 21-22%.

Thanks.

With what prop? Sounds like about a 10-10? Watch them rpm versus prop diameter.

An option is Merlin plugs - call for recommendations, I did and bought an assortment of 20 plugs for various engines. So far so good.
