Chris, I think that was probably Doug Humble with the rope suggestion.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
BTW, seriously consider weighting down the tail. Even though the wheels are
locked, a hearty dose of RPMs can pull it up over the front. To
mistake-proof my weight on the tail, I have a REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT tag which
I clip to the throttle. After the engine starts I remove the flag from the
throttle and clip it back onto the tail weight, which I then remove.
The other method that I use is a nylon strap, with a kwick clip. I position
the tail over a suitable tiedown then wrap the strap over the tail. It is
already mistake-proofed against forgetting to remove it, since I can't move
with it still attached.
I'm just too stubborn to get a starter.
