Historically I have been the sort of person that runs my Glow Plugs until "It don't go no more". How ever more & more I am telling my self that if the Engine is running SMOTHLY then the battle is half over... (are you with me on this one?)

I am starting to think that as some as the engine even appears off colour it is time to change the Plug.

Just wondering what is the life expectancy of a F3C Glow plug???

I guess that Hashimoto change's plug for every flight in a competition...

The planker's LOVE the F3C guys. I run the plug until it no longer runs smooth in a hover and that length of time varies with the time of year and how much power I am trying to make.As you stated, if my motor does ANYTHING different than I expect, I change the plug first.
During contest season, they get all my pulls and run them in the airplanes for another 3-4 months.

On a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the view never changes.
