Starter Stand
Click on any picture to see an enlargment.
As you can see I don't like standing in
front of a propeller.  Here is my simple
project made up of 1" PVC pipe and a
Hobbico starter.  The power source is
from my the 7mah gel cell battery in my
Great Planes Master Caddy.  The
power panel is a Tower Hobbies.
Constrution is: 1" hardwood board with a 1/4"
aluminum plate bolted to it for stiffness.  To that
is bolted two drawer slides with a cradle in the
middle which holds the starter.  A long bolt acts
as a stopper with a spring for return action.  On
the bottom right of the drawer slides you can see
toggle switch.  That is activated by a wire to the
end of one drawer slide.  The on/off swith on the
starter is tie wrapped closed and the toggle
switch in back activates the starter.  The power
station is slung from the bottom for weight.
