Glow head adapters for Cox 049 engines

Postby Tim Hulse » Sat Sep 29, 2007 11:23 am

I recently aquired a new intrest in control line flying, thanks to my 3 year old grandson, he loves anything to do with airplanes and I thought a plane hanging from his bedroom cealing would be very cool to him. I remembered how much fun I had had as a younger man with control line flying, so to make a long story short I am in the process of building both of my grandsons a 049 propelled CL plane. I have a couple of 049 Cox motors but the glow heads are toast, any one out there have experience with the aftermarket heads that take a standard glow plug? I have heard that some reduce power but that some will increase compression with a long glow plug, any info would be appreciated.

Mecoa sells them but I have noticed a reduction in power using them but they are better than nothing.
