FG-21 vid

Today I converted my hobbico electric starter to run on my Dewalt drill's 18volt battery pack. It solved my lack of a new battery issue for the starter and boosted the torque. It starts the engine "without effort" now. I took the video and almost didn't post since my shirt wasn't pulled down in the back but figured the video was more important. I went out to test the starter and it was 100 plus degrees F here in San Antonio today so it was a fairly short test. I let the engine run for 10 minutes after the 4 minute video and it is responding to throttle quite well. I'm going to love this engine. Seems like a quality product and I love the sound.
