Understanding the mechanism behind RC Helicopter Glow Engines

While RC vehicle enthusiasts are reasonably familiar with RC helicopter glow engines, not everyone is properly aware as to what exactly these engines are, or how do they work. In this article, we attempt to give a complete lowdown on RC helicopter glow engines. Given the information, have a look at, RC ARF Airplanes you should easily be able to maintain your own nitro fuel based RC helicopter with ease. You should also get well entrenched with RC helicopter glow engines as a whole.

Essentially, RC helicopter glow engines are those engines that run on specially created nitro fuel. Contrary to what you may have been told or heard about, this nitro fuel is not the standard also see, Kyosho RC Cars fuel that you get at gas try, RC F1 Cars stations. Instead, it is a unique, specially designed combination of nitro methane, oil and alcohol which serves as a perfect fuel for these ingenious vehicles.

Where would you obtain this fuel? The fuel for RC helicopter glow engines can actually be obtained with reasonable ease, at any retail or Internet why not visit, RC Cars outlet, selling RC vehicles. Some RC vehicle enthusiasts have attempted to make this fuel at home consider, RC RTR Boat all by themselves, undoubtedly with disastrous results, so do not try to do that! Look out for reviews of the retailers selling nitro fuel and then make the best choice of an outlet for yourself. look at, RC Materials

Having obtained insights on the fuel, it is time to understand the mechanism of RC helicopter glow engines. First of all, why are they referred to as glow engines in the very first place? Well that is because, these RC helicopter glow engines use a glow plug instead of a conventional spark plug, to ignite the fuel and get the engine running. This glow plug is different from ordinary spark plugs in the sense that it does not require a spark in order to ignite the fuel in the engine. Instead, it uses a small coil that remains sufficiently heated at all times, to be able to set off an ignition, the next time fuel is compressed inside also look at, RC Boat Jet the cylinder heads of the engine. A glow heater sets off the aforementioned coil, and once the engine has been cranked up, there is no need for you to keep the glow heater or glow plug connected. This is in fact another point of difference between conventional spark plugs (which need to remain connected at all times) and the glow plugs we mention here.

Overall, these glow engine based RC helicopters provide the chills and trills not easily witnessed in the case of electric also see, RC Model Boat RC helicopters. So, if you are in the RC vehicle arena for a truly high flying experience, consider running RC helicopters powered by RC helicopter glow engines.
