All nitro engines require a Glow Plug Heater to facilitate the engine start.

We will shortly be offering a Kyosho Plug Heater & Charger, which comprises of a 2600mAh rechargeable plug heater, USB charger and instructions. (Recharging is done via the USB socket on a Laptop, PC or other devices).

So is £15 a good price ? Ive never bought or even looked at buying one, and wouldn't know which to compare this one too.

Its not the cheapest but is a good capacity. Very few around that have a USB charger (most are mains) and it's Kyosho supported product.

That's tempting if only for the USB charger all my chargers are mains.

I did not realise you could get USB ones.

Basically starts the engine.
It sends a "spark" to ingnite the fuel in the power unit.

It makes the glow plug glow which starts the combustion process - basically its a must have item if you wish to start the engine/run the model.

Good day Gents,

I was just wondering, does the Glow Plug Heater come with the Moddle or do we need to go guy it seperately?
