Gassers for Newbies
Gary HoffmanCody Wojcik
 
Why gassers over glow?
Cost
 –
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
Size/weight
 –
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
Complexity
 –
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!!!)
