Field Test

Got a chance to use the "stick" today.
After a little practice(15-20 flips) I was impressed and it works as advertised.
No prop scratches and I can actually
get more downward thrust on the prop than with my hand...at a much safer distance too. I'm not affiliated with this company at all......Just giving
cuddos to a very good and well designed product.
Btw....I started all the gassers at my field today. 30-120cc
Merry Christmas to all.

Thanks for the report. Please follow up after you fire it up....

I just ordered one myself because I had my fingers hit twice and have been using a paint roller since then.

One question though, if the vinyl wears out can you buy a replacement?

Thanks, Mike

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your order. I probably could replace the roller vinyl but like the previous post said, it is very durable and don't think it will be wearing out very soon. If it ever wears out from normal RC use you let me know and I'll get you fixed up with a replacement.

Thanks again for your order.
Richard

We used it at the field to fire up a ZDZ80 twin. Works nice. Gave one to a friend who said I was a day late and showed me a cut up finger... - I said now - you can keep that finger.

Used mine at the field today on my 60cc P51 that bit me bad about 3 months back and on a 120 cc, works perfect I see no need for one labeled for giant scale. Now the only problem I have is that I bought 2, 1 to give to a buddy but he wouldn't even try it, said he would rather use a glove

Fantastic my friend! So glad you like it. I am amazed at how many people are getting cut up in this hobby, and it dosnt need to happen. We gotta get the word out and that is not greed talking, that is genuine concern for my fellow RC brothers!

Thanks again,
Richard

Thanks for the report and I'm glad you like it. As for the fellow pilot that wouldn't even try it...that's not a problem...to each their own. As for me, there is no way I will ever start my giant engines by hand.

Thanks again my friend.
Richard

Looks like a great product. The back of my Falcon 3 blade is so sharp it is cutting through my glove. Which one would I purchase for my 222? Sign me up for the one you recommend. Thx!!

Thank you my friend for your interest.

That's like my mejzlik props, they are like a knife. I don't know how anyone can start one without getting cut.

All of the RCS have a 5" roller. All of them will work the same, it's just how much grip you like in your hand. The #2 grip is a little shorter then the #1, more for the smaller engines where you don't have to grip the Stick so tightly.

The #1 is a good grip. I have used the #1 for most of my starts on my 170's. You get a good grip on the Stick with this grip.

The #3 is if you like to feel a little more grip. It actually makes the Stick feel a little bigger. I kind of like this one...like Teddy said...when I walk up to a big cc finger biter, I like to "carry a BIG Stick!"

How bout if some of the people that have now received a RCS weigh in on this....

There is a post from one of the pilots that just received a #1 RCS, I looked for it but couldn't find it...where he states that he dosnt see any reason to have one labeled for Giant size because the #1 worked perfect for him.

Here's another Post 30..

Ya know, here's what you could do,...what I do,...and what I recommend...get a #1 AND a #3. We don't have a 'one per customer' policy! I actually have more than one ....
