SwitchGlo Pro is a revolutionary onboard glow driver that simply plugs into an RX receiver channel and requires no re-charging or additional batteries. It will accept any voltage input between 4V and 9V. Because of its unique and highly efficient voltage regulation technology, SwitchGlo Pro draws an insignificant 0.4mAh per 1 second of glow time and will not noticeably
drain your battery. Total onboard weight is only 25 grams including the pig tail.

“Know when you Glow” with an audible buzzer that can also assist in locating a lost craft. SwitchGlo helps you diagnose starting problems with a single beep when detecting an open circuit, indicating you that your glow plug is spent, and greatly reducing time wasted troubleshooting.

You can program mix SwitchGlo Pro just like any other servo on your craft. SwitchGlo Pro has a 4 switch SIP with a built in servo reverser for Y harnessing and an adjustable 12 or 60 second Auto Shut-Off setting. This allows you to adjust for every possible installation and program mix, from eliminating Helicopter “Hot Starts”, to “Low Throttle Mixes” for Airplane taxiing and final approach, SwitchGlo Pro can do it all.

No more struggling with lost or forgotten hand held ni-starters, broken remote cables, or dead batteries. SwitchGlo Pro is ready to work for you every time you power on your craft!

SwitchGlo Pro TX Controlled Glow Driver w/Alligator Pigtail
Awesome! Simple to install and work very well! I will never return with a glow driver since i tried that! Just install it and program the channel would you like to use to put it on and voila! Flip the programmed switch and start the engine. The sound is helpfull to know if your glow is heating or burned. I love it!
