i fly rc planes and i am sure a glow plug would easily work, however to obtain the best results ( this technique is used in rc jet turbies) take the glow fiament and pull it out of the plug so it is still connected, but is streched out.

"If a little is good.....more is better"

My last words: "Ooooo! what does that do!?!?"

Sorry to be a killjoy but...

This whole thing just sounds silly if you ask me. How is a glow-plug any more effective than anything else? Why be stubborn? Using a glowplug isn't going to produce any better results than anything else nor create any new advancements in the field of cannon building. A cheap $5 Peizo would actually perform better. To add insult to injury, you’re not going to be able to ignite instantly with a simple push of the button, AND you’re going to wind up having to change out the glowplug here and there. Did I mention their more expensive than electric grill igniters?

If you could explain why exactly you want to use it then I might be a bit more understanding. Sorry for the pessimistic outlook on the topic.

Well you are right it doesnt work. I tried it today with no success. I just wanted to try something new for a remote ignition.
