Model Products Corporation

Model Products Corporation was started in the late 1970s by Richard Remington. He designed and patented the Head Lock Glow Plug Connector. It featured a spring loaded twist lock, making it very secure, yet easy to attach or remove. Later, he developed the Head Lite series and Head Locks with batteries, meters and/or chargers.

Model Products earned a reputation as a manufacturer of high quality products. Sullivan purchased Model Products in May 1999, and we continue those same quality standards today.

Recent additions to the Model Products line are the Onboard Glow Driver for single and twin cylinder engines and the Extended Head Lock Remote(see below).

Onboard Glow Plug Driver. This glow driver features your choice of quick and easy one button set point programming or automatic operation, so the plug received power at any throttle settings. The set point is stored in memory until changed. The green LED light indicates burned out plugs by flashing on the panel. The unit doesn't require a Y-Harness, just plug to receiver, throttle servo and to any 1.2V to 12V* battery. Only weighs 34g.

* The M061 twin cylinder onboard glow plug driver requires a 1.2V to 7.6 battery for operation.
All other versions of the glow plug driver will require a 1.2V to 12V battery.

Head Lock. The Head Lock Glow Plug Connectors feature the original patented spring loaded "Twist-Lock" design and heavy duty power cords. In mid-2000 they were upgraded with stronger springs. To attach to a glow plug you simply push down and turn. The Head Lock can be powered by any 1.2V to 1.5V battery or power panel.

Head Lock Remote. The Head Lock Remotes have the same Twist-Lock design of the Head Locks, but are low profile to fit under cowls or canopies. They have a remote glow plug connector, allowing the pilot to power the glow plug from any point on the model (away from the prop). The plug can be powered by a Head Lock or Head Lite.
