Fabulous product

Just received my glow driver and I just love it. I tried it on several different glow plugs and current meter indicates slight differences. I think the soft-start feature is great. Very satisfied with the product. Wish I purchased sooner.

Great Customer service

I called looking for new case had a couple of colors left, got it to me quickly and in good shape. Went to move everything over and my charging jack had come apart. Looked around to try to find one but couldn’t. Called back thinking they would not have that in loose parts but he did and got one right out, even in this national crisis he took care of me stat. Thanks John in KY PS best glow driver ever!!!

Trouble with Rcat glow driver.

I bought my Rcat glow driver in 2015 and it has started to be unstable. When turned on the diodes light up but there is no glow in the plug. When I take the plug clip apart for some seconds and take it together again the diodes light up, and now it glows. This happens all the time making the Rcat unfit for F2B competition.

glow driver

bought a glow driver at least five years ago i still use it today.1/8 scale friends now all own one. sticker shock at first but its the last driver you will ever buy. i charge it mabe three times a year. customer service great had one small problems when first bought it no problem was fixed right can tell when glow plug goes bad.little flooded no problem automatic puts more power to plug.i use to start buggys at least one weekend a month it gets heavy use and alot of times its being borrowed to start other cars when there driver fails.if you have a nitro motor to start this is the driver you will want.worth every penny

What a nice fella Michael is at RCats, I had a problem and he made sure it was rectified. Great Company to deal with. I will certainly buy from them again.

Lithium Glow Driver

This is the best glow driver I've ever owned. I bought one of the first generation drivers and used it for several years. I'd charge it up every couple of months. Now I've got the latest version and like it even better. I charge it January and again in August just in case. It's never let me down. Like anything else, take care of it and it will last a long time. It will be the most borrowed item in your flight box.
