Gassers for Newbies
Gary HoffmanCody Wojcik
Why gassers over glow?
Gassers use about 1/3 the fuel per minute, and the fuel is$4-5/a gallon versus $20+ for glow fuel
Ease of use
No oil slime on airframe to clean up
No glow ignitor
No starter
More flight time per tank
Gassers downsides versus glow
Gassers have a minimum practical size.
Horizon has just introduced 10, 15, 20 and 33cc gassers. Theyare converted glow engines and require a richer oil to gas ratio
They use the muffler to pressurize the fuel system similar toglow engines
Electronic ignition requires some wiring from Rx to spark plug
Ignition box mounting
Fuel tank setup has vent lines and fuel dot (filler), NOT pressureon all but the Horizon Evo engines
All the fuel lines need to be 100% leak free (very important!!!)
