Oh!    :headscratch:   Long time ago, more than 20 minutes.   Forgotten about that ...  :old:

Anyway, some of us poor souls live somewhat further away from the Equator than others .....   :(
Gets a bit nippy around the wotsits up here.
In that sort of weather it's better that we retired gentlefolk stay close to the central heating and observe the antics of others through the double glazing ....   :stir:

Jo. Jason mentioned using a flywheel instead of a prop for running your engines and he has got a point, I ran a ED Racer, ED Sea Otter, and a 15cc Gannet OHV when I was into model boats all started and ran no bother.
With test bed running you could use a electric starter and not be bothered with a starting cord, the only thing would maybe be a cooling issue but worth a try.
