CD Ignition lead and fixed plug ....
My RCGF has the typical CDi box and fixed lead / plug ... which is a pain in size to need a large hole to pass though.
I cannot believe that everyone cuts such a huge hole to pass the plug through ... so is there any modification or way to have cable exit fuselage to get to cylinder head ? I want to have the CDi box inside fuselage this time instead of external mount as it was previous.
Second ... my original CDi box and plug lead was involved in a crash .. the plug lead was severed. I believe the box and electronics are fine - but the lead ? is there any way to repair the spark lead and plug ? Is there a joiner or does it need replacement ? What to use ? can standard car ignition lead be used ? but then of course needs to obtain the small plug ... to fit the spark plug.

You can get one of these. Maybe a local chainsaw shop has them, not sure about shipping to your location. I am replacing mine because the cap failed and there was spark inside the cap with no plug inside while testing it.

Which plug size, which CDI?
For the glowplug size I don't see the problem, the hole needs not be that much bigger than the cable diameter.
You can change the plug-cap, so I guess, you could remove the cap, fit the cable through the bulkhead penetration, and refit the cap.
For instructions on how to remove or refit the cap: www.mvvs.nl
That is Pe Reivers' site.
I only have experience with the RCeXL unit, there the box is sealed, and you might be able to shorten the damaged lead if there is sufficient lenght remaining, but as far as I know, you cannot replace the complete lead.
You can, to the best of my knowledge, not use standard car lead, as the braiding not only shields the RF, but also provides ground for the plug, and car leads usually do not have braiding.

The RCGF Cdi unit is the standard Chinese sealed unit ... but the plug-cap does look same as the mvvs.nl site ...
Will ponder this more ...
