    Charlie P and Grey Beard, and others, have it right. 150' length should be fine. The Stik should take 40-50' to take off in zero wind, depending on engine and prop. My Ultra Stik has a 70 4-stroke,...

    Thud driver, there's a wild weasel still working as a gate guard not far from here, Tipton IIRC. I see it on the way to the Toledo show every year.
