Default Onboard Glow Driver....where to purchase?

Hi:
I have a RCV90SP on order (for my H-9 Corsair) and I will need an onboard glow driver.
Anyone have experience with these and can give me info on where to purchase one would be appreciated.
Thanks

Tom

I bought a couple from C-tronics in NJ; his ads are in RC Report and MA; they are self-adjusting, auto cut-off above 1/4 throttle, auto shut-off when you cut off the engine with low trim, come with an 1800mah ncad cell and your choice of radio plug and glow plug connector; $39.95 including shipping and a 15% club discount for 5 or more. They have a red LED indicator light and mine work flawlessly...JIM >>>Any questions, feel free

I'm kind of partial to the glow driver supplied by nelson Hobbies. They are easy to set up and bulletproof. Check them out at Nelsonhobby.com.

I have tried two of the Experts without any luck at all. I have better luck making up my own. I haven't used one in years though but they do come in handy with a cowled engine.
