People were asking us about how we recommend starting. So we put together a quick vid of how we start the MLD-28S engine at our shop. It follows the manually in a fairly abbreviated fashion. We did not use anything special, but we did choose to use a more dangerous (harder) prop such as a Mejzlik. We wanted to show that with care, we can minimize much danger.
Ignition: Factory issued CDI
Muffler: Side mount (we mounted upside down to reduce exhaust)
Oil: AMSOIL, Sabre Professional (2 cycle synthetic) mixed at 100-1
