Screw that. I start my magnum 15 with a torque starter.
In this video, I start an old AP .09 with the electric starter...

I have found a couple. Are you going to want dual or quad processor? Also does it have to be new? Here is 2 of them:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Acer-Black...ystem/22099647

This is the computer I have now.

What ever you do do not buy a core i3 processor. They have so much more advanced technology. Mine is an i5 but it is the Gen 2 of the i5 which is good. They have up to i7 right now.

If I had a 1/2a starter I would use it to speed up the process a little.

Those look pretty good, thanks!

But I bolded your statement above. It's a complete paradox, what are you trying to say?

Thanks so much!

It is all really opinionated. Everyone goes their own way.

Destroy is a harsh word. You also said "(very short)"....?

My Cox plugs last a very long time. I break them in, and take care of them. I can't offer any other evidence. I find them gummed up from 50 years ago, and after cleaning they still work.

Oops, meant on-board drivers. I do use an external driver on the head. I don't care if it's dangerous. The worst thing they can do this small when flipping is cut my finger. But that has never happened, because I try to very careful. You can also use a chicken stick.

Probably wouldn't be too hard to rig on up. A 480 can motor with no ESC, just wire it up to a battery with a switch. Don't know what you would use for the cone though.

i3 is an older processor but they throw them into less expensive computers such as netbooks. Some netbooks still have the atom processor(sooo slow). Just be aware of what you are buying and ask questions. Lots of questions.

The preference of what size engine goes on what plane is, the rest is not.

For $320 refurbished, that sounds pretty good. But I'd probably want to buy new just for the extra $80. Hopefully my parents will chip in as well. I'll continue to look around and see what I find.

Do not buy the first one you like. Look around a while.
