(Yesterday I headed out to the flying site to fly the Streaker while we had a 72 degrees and a  7 mph wind  ( in December!) here in Oklahoma city. I fueled up the plane with one ounce of fuel and went back to the car to get the starter. I couldn't find it and came to the conclusion I must have left it home. I thought to myself there is probably no way to hand prop the TD since I have heard it was difficult to start. But since I was there I might as well give it a shot. So I primed it and to my surprise it fired up instantly and ran perfect. So much for hard starting! Got in 6 minutes of flying before running out of fuel.it I made a decent landing and emmediately refueld and again the little engine fired right up with just a couple of flips of the prop. So much for the TD being hard to start. Got another six minute flight in and after landing I just felt good and headed home.

Good to read your winter flights with a TeeDee, Dick!

While I mostly use electric starter on the 049/051-s and 09-s, and spring starters on 020-s and 010-s, if I prime it well and use a 5x4 or larger prop, the 049-s start with hand flipping easily too.

Good for you Dick, getting out there and doing it. I envy you your flat model flying friendly land. But with Ok, 72 one day, 12 the next. I know I was stationed in Norman for a while.
