Nearing test flight one of two SeaFury's we got back in 2017. Powered by a geared Moki 250 to run a scale 5 blade prop around 1500rpm!

Nice. How do you go about starting one of them if its geared? Does it have a starter?

Its a planetary gearbox, so with my hand/arm. It needs a good pull because of the gearing and 5 cylinders. Will see if I'm clever enough to stick a video up of the first start...
