Im gona have my wife video my very first start. You all are invited to watch. I will have everything I need this coming week as i am waiting on connectors for my scuba tank to my start box. Once they get here its a quick trip to the airport for fuel and then, light her up. I've never posted a video but i'm sure I can figure it out. Thanks once again guys. You all have helped me. I feel confiedent now about starting, and flying this thing.

Haha sure is not! Especially when its a full manual start. My first one was the GWM fd-3 and they dont come more manual start than that. Next was the Ram 750 and by comparison the RAM was SO simple to start. Plus an air start engine still has by far the coolest start sound ever.

I never use a scuba, just a compressor and air tank for the Ram. Sometimes you fudge the start and all that air is wasted. Air for money lol.

Good luck, You'll never forget it
