You can build on the shopmade "remote" glow plug wiring using a wheel collar to have an onboard glo heat system that will supply voltage to glow plug on an inflight basis.

The latter is/was useful with .60 size two stroke engines which are installed inverted and the concern is that in such an installation the engine stopping on low speed due to the glow plug being drown/cooling.

To add the onboard, inflight feature of battery heat being applied at idle/low speed you need
- on board battery, typically a single "D" NiCad or a 1.5 v. alkaline cell
- a 5 amp micro lever/roller type switch in the circuit, and triggered by a small servo's arm being contact with the switch lever/roller. These switches typically have a couple of holes in their body for mounting.

Again such an installation also doubles to provide starter glo heat for initial ground start of the engine.

This is old technology..... I am sure there are solid state devices to do this as well.

I've used the Sullivan one in the link below. Just like a previous post said, it never came off. It twists on and locks just like a glow driver does. Cheers floyd
