Very very simple. Plug the tubing from the propane canister to the festo fitting and open the valve. Raise and lower the throttle stick on the radio. From there it does all the rest.

Most folks use a standard 1lb propane canister. The sort you might use for a portable BBQ grill, camp stove or propane lantern. You can buy them at walmart, K-mart, grocery store, etc.

If you click on my screen name, you will see the option to send a PM.
