I have a Vario Boxer that I recently got in a trade with very low time and I'm trying to figure out the on board glow system. It has an EDR 103 in it at the time but I'm not sure how to program the mix to work in my JR 9503. I'm missing something simple but I don't understand what drives the plugs to start the engine. If the unit is faulty and needs to be replaced what would be a good candidate for the job? I don't want to have issues with anything on the first start up.

What about SwitchGlo Pro or the simpler PushGlo version?

I program mine to activate in a start flight mode that is simply throttle hold plus glow. I've never had a hot start since.

If running multi cylinders, you could run multiple units from a single Rex channel because they use little power.

The upside to the EDR is that it activates at low throttle settings to keep from having a flame out. Do you know of any that would be mixed to the throttle channel that are easy to program? Thanks for the input.

Any Boxer owners out there with their preferences? I'm really challenged when it comes to this stuff so the more user friendly the better. ALL help and input is greatly appreciated. I'm an old guy that started with helis in the 70's so all this new fangled stuff is like Greek to me.

Switchglo can also activate at throttle position if radio is capable.
