I know, old school, but where can I find more info on the OLTC? Also I am want to build a fly back/ ignition coil driver based on a 555. What would be a good frequency to tune to for starters?

It is sort of like the salt water vs. MMC thing.... If you want to make a
solid state coil that is real simple and easy to understand, the OLTC is
it. If you want super high performance with more cost, knowledge needed,
then the DRSSTC....

For high reliability manned space flight use, the OLTC is best :o))) But
nothing beats the "performance" of the DRSSTC even if it does blow it guts
out now and then... However, or friends across the pond have really taken
the OLTC to super high levels!!!

The DRSSTC also has the advantage in that "I" did not make up the
abbreviation :o)))
