Remote Glow Adapter Question
Has anyone made their own remote glow adapter that will still allow the use of a Hot-Shot? I know I can make one that will use a regular plug jack and be powered off the 1.5 volt jacks on my power panel, but I'd still like to keep the option of using a Hot-Shot. I'm looking for a hobby solution that will save spending ~8 - 10 bucks everytime a remote glow system breaks.

Any ideas?

I use a regular remote glow with a short length of wire with an RCA connector that way I can hook up to my power panel or use a glow-stick....simple.http://www.webstarts.com/micksscalehelicopters

I'm not sure my question was clear enough, or I didn't understand your post. I'm asking about making the actual remote glow adapter (using old glow plug?, #6 nylock nut?, etc.) I'm tired of spending $10 for a new remote glow adapter every time the wire breaks.

Hi

I used to "repair" the TT remote glows because the sentre pin would always come loose. I would drilled the 'glow plug' out and replaced the centre pin with a 3mm bolt. I used 2 short bits of thin fuel tube to possition the bolt in the centre while the epoxy dried. I used thin silicon wire from the electric car guys.

I started shopping at a different hobby shop and they have a much better quality remote glow. I have been using them for about 2 years and they are all still going well....unfortunatly i cant tell you what brand they are as they come in an unlabled packet...

Juct look for a better quality one and you will be happy the time and effort is not worth it. The "repaired" ones always looked crap.
