XGuard RC XGlow Pro Glow Igniter
I'm an airplane guy. I use an onboard glow driver for inverted engines to keep them idling reliably. Jason from Amain suggested I take this in lieu of a SwitchGlo which is apparently on backorder forever. I glanced at it and it looked like a typical glo driver that could work for me, so I took a chance. Sorry I did. To mention a few manufacturers, SwitchGlo, Sullivan, and Electrodynamics glo drivers enable the throttle to turn the glo on at low throttle, and off at a higher throttle setting. This system looks at on/off more as a manual operation. They recommend a 2 or 3 position transmitter switch for remote use. I thought using the throttle rather than a switch might work. It sort of does does, but the ON command (throttle idle) starts a timer that’s configurable up to 30 seconds. Advancing the throttle will stop the glo, but that’s not the problem. It’s the timeout. I don’t want the engine to quit waiting for takeoff, or on a long descent. Doesn’t work for me. If you could disable the timeout, it would be fine.

Update: Jason is awesome, very helpful. Turns out the SwitchGlo has come in and I'll swap the XGuard for a SwitchGlo.
