Next question for the gasser gurus is;

What would be the best spark plug to carry as a spare in my flight box for my G230?

Not sure what's in it at the moment but figured I'd better have at least one spare. :D

What... nobody has any thoughts on this?

The Zenoah manual recommends a Champion RZ7C.

But I've seen advice on forums that suggest using either of the NGK CR7HSA or CR8HVX.

Any thoughts guys?

Andrew , for the best BLING plug , go for the NGK CR7HIX, IRIDIUM .. Even the pretty box it comes in just screams BLING.....:D

Just a shame that I dont think it does a bloody thing for the actual running of the motor though ..... :p:p

Thanks for all the advice folks.

As it turns out I had a lot of trouble finding them, thankfully... because when I finally got to a shop where the owner asked to see the old plug I dragged the heli out of the car and of course as mine is the OLD gasser (X-Cell Graphite 1005) it has a 14mm plug not the 10mm you are all quoting.

So for future reference the correct plug for the old gasser motors in an NGK is a BPMR7A. Go figure.

LOL... so the memory problem is not just mine alone!

Again, just for the record, the "B" in the plug that my old gasser uses means it has the 14mm thread body and the "C" in the plugs that you guys use means it has the 10mm thread body.

In case you're really interested an "A" is for 18mm and "D" for 12mm. :cool:
