you can use a taser, you just need someone who can buy them to modify it so its not in a hand held enclosure. The hand held enclosure of the stun gun guts is what classifies it as a weapon, if the guts are taken out and put in a square box its no more illegal than the ignition system for a gas powered RC car :)

or an ignition coil is good but they are bulky, camera flash is good too but you need the spark gap realy close and the contacts wear away pretty fast.

Why would you ned a bigger spark? The chamber of my spudgun is 29" long and 4" wide and it ignights perfectly with a BBQ ignighter. You just gotta get the fuel right.

I "borrowed" a taser from my friends house and made it with 2 spark plugs. That was a while ago, I dont know if I still have the cannon.
