OS .61 FX Question

What's a good glow plug for the OS 61 FX? I'm putting one on an Utter
Kaos 60. Also what prop?

12=13X6 prop and OS #8 or Fox standard long. K&B 1L if you can find them.
Use 10% or less nitro and you will like it better.

I have a dozen 1L's. I'm just getting back into R/C after being away
from the hobby for awhile. I use to fly Pattern with YS 61's and the
1L was about the only plug to work good on those engines.

After looking on Tower's website I can't find K&B listed, are they still
in business?

my vote is for OS #8 plug and up to a 13x6 prop, preferably 13x5 if you can
find one......you might also try a 12x6 and 12x7 to experiment.

Found their website (www.mecoa.com) and according to them they have the
1L's instock. Do you know of any Mail Order shops who carry the K&B 1L's?

Before someone tells me to "support your local hobbyshop" all our local
hobby shops carry here are ARF Trainers, 40's, and Uncle Milton's
AntFarms.....
