The G-62 has always been and easy start, but the Rolling Chicken Stick makes the process even more enjoyable. No more slipping in and out of a glove or having to throw the shoulder out of joint when I accidentally over-prime the engine. Adding to my enjoyment, the smooth follow-through arm action appears less taxing on the arm. After seven flights, I'm hooked!! Thanks Rich

Great review Bro! Thanks so much!...
Nice to have satisfied customers...more important then anything!

Thanks for the post.

I grew up hating chicken sticks. I always had one of those round thingies you plug into a battery, push a button, and the engine runs (sometimes). I got a free chicken stick with an estate and I gave it away. Why? I don't like-em! Then something odd happened. I know it never happened to you so let me splain! I got my fingers crunched by a G62 a few weeks ago and my communicating finger still points south. So... lemme look into this chicken thing a bit more. I'm a tinkerer, broke, broken, and stumbled onto an extension to the paint roller idea I posted in another thread. I'll let your searching skills find it as there was no intentions to take away from the RCS as stated, but it still might. Anyway... I seem to have a genuine RCS in my possession. Due to life in general I still haven't gotten to use it on anything larger than a 20, but as can be seen, I may have started a 20 once or twice and the APC may or may not have left its mark. Now that wouldn't have normally been my fingers as me and the APCs have come to an understanding and I keep my fingers away from the sharp parts, but with a RCS all bets are off.

As to a couple of ideas I had, one is:
One of my 20s is on a profile. This makes finding the sweet spot with the RCS a bit of a challenge. Somewhere between slipping off the end of the RCS or bashing the bejeebers out of the fuse is the sweet spot which is a narrow area of the end of the RCS. To be able to repeat this spot requires time and effort and I'm lazy, so I feegered a shortcut. I put an o-ring at the sweet spot. Slide this to the prop and flip away. The ring can slide if needed, and it won't hold if you wanted it to, but it's a constant reminder not requiring thought. And it slips outta the way for other engines should I get back to flying my real planes anytime soon
.
2, a round stick on a bench with a running engine means I'll be bending down to pick it up when it rolls off. Over and over and... Bending down suuuucks. So I put some flats on the handle. Time will tell how well this works, but it can't hurt to try. Maybe other handles I haven't seen might already have this feature? Anyway, there's 2 ideas! Use'em, don't use'em, I'll be at the flying field blaming my piss-poor flying on my bent up fingers for not having an RCS sooner. Thank you again, Richard!

Thank you for taking the time to write your post. I appreciate it...

I sent you a RCS in hopes of making a small part of your life a little easier...if I accomplished this then we are both happy...

Take care my friend and have fun.
Richard

Well I will be.....

Very happy to tell you all, that today, I used my rolling chicken stick, and it was more than adequate and felt great turning on this 200 cc motor.!

I am a 100% believer in this now.

Unless the plastic rolls off or it stops turning, this is a great product!


Then, one of my friends was test running his rotary motor engine for a P47, and I used it also to turn on his motor.

Which was cool to see this very unusual motor. People kept asking? : "Where is the cylinder??"

Anyways, fun day today, and just wanted to tell the inventor that I am so far satisfied!

WOW! Bud...Thank you so much for your post....
It just really makes my day to hear that customers are satisfied with the RCS!
I dont think anything will come apart with the RCS, I build it to stay together... but if anything does go wrong please let me know right away...
Keep the roller rolling with a couple drops of a silicone lubricant like the instructions say. The photo is what I use...this and a hypodermic needle to get to the little hole in the roller. I lube them all before I send them out.
So glad you finally came around....it took a-while!...

Thanks for taking the time to write the post. Keep me updated from time to time.
Richard

I've had a lot of pilots that fly the BIG gassers ask how the RCS works on the big guys...
There you have it straight from a 200cc !
I have said...The bigger the engine, the better this thing works!
I had a similar reply from another pilot that uses his on a 222cc.... same reply.

Thanks again for your post Orthobird.

Richard, Thank YOU!!

it was a breeze to use with my 200

and I feel so much more safe!

I am a surgeon, and my hands are my money makers!

SO the farther I can keep my hands from the prop, the better!

I really appreciate you!

I tried the RCS for the first time on a 35cc engine. I chewed up two props with it. The thin edge of the prop busted as I tried to start a fresh engine for the first time. I wonder if its probably just me. If not, I'll stop using it for the sake of not breaking props. Perhaps the larger engine it would be fine for me. I'll keep trying to see if perhaps there is a learning curve in using it.

I had another guy do this and what happened was he was not going in a straight line down and off the end of the prop. You shouldnt be damaging the prop on a 35cc engine, are you coming off the front of the prop?

Just an example of the personalized RCS.

Enjoy Roy and thanks...

Since I opened my site in December for the ROLLING Chicken Stick I have had tremendous response and wish to thank everyone that has ordered a RCS...

In 4 1/2 months I have shipped to 44 states in the US. I'd like to make it 50, sooo...
The first customers from the following states to reply back with an order will get TWO RCS for the price of one ...AND I'll even personalize them at no additional fee!.... Thats $64.90 value for $19.95 + $5.00 shipping... Thats an offer that will not be repeated.

Here's the states I need yet:
Delaware
Nebraska
North Dakota
Rhode Island
Vermont
Wyoming


Thanks again,
Richard
