With a hi-start you need people with pull.

The videos reminded me of the days when we were doing 3M on a substantial hi-start About three pulls and you were worn out, so we pulled it with the trailer hitch on a car. With a good chute that worked out great.

Last year I went to SouthEastElectricFly and one of the guys had a small scooter with a seat. He let me try it and it was a blast to ride in the mowed grass.

On page 2, post #22, I submitted the idea of using a small electric scooter to pull the mini-start, but got no response. I don't know how small you could go, but a bigger one may be a transportation problem.

This week end may buzz out the the FF field and take a look at their chase vehicles, and how they are transporting them. The FF guys have a walking problem greater than ours.
