A CLOSE LOOK AT THE DAVIS DIESEL CONVERTER HEADS
When you put a Davis Diesel Converter Head on a standard glow engine (in place of the glow head that comes with the engine), you gain several advantages; i.e., the engine sound is quieter in flight. The engine will develop more usable power. The power can be used to turn a larger (and much more efficient) prop just as real aircraft engines, which are often geared to turn a bigger prop for gained efficiency. The engine sucks in less air and the venturi air sound is lessened. The engine needs no glow plug and there are other gains, such as doing “something different” which many of us enjoy as R/C modelers.
