Default Pulled a noob move today

Well today I was breaking in my new Super Tigre G90 motor, when it had got flooded. So I do the usual of pull the glow plug and proceed to crank it over. Well in doing so I totally forgot with the way I start my engines, that the top of the motor is directly under my face.......... so after ten minutes of swearing, spittin fuel and washing my burning eyes I decided my engine was a little too rich

I did that at the flying field one day in front of everyone.  I felt like such a tool.  I took out the glow plug and then hit the engine with my electric starter.  Man fuel went everywhere!

It's not often that I read something which makes me laugh out loud.

I've done that myself once, or was it twice? Then I learned to put a rag over the top of the engine.

You want to hear a good one I recently tried to fly one of my four stroke airplanes after not being able to buy 20/20 fuel for my ys engine. been using 2 stroke planes. I forgot when fueling the 4 stroke to disconnect the vent tube from the the one way valve connected to the engine. Ys engines use a pressurized fuel tank system. well I pumped fuel into the tank and the pressure in the tank kept building and building until finally the fuel filler hose popped off. The tank of fuel immediatly started spraying under pressure everywhere in my mouth up my nose all over my glasses in the eyes and all over my hair and clothes. I am now good for another year at least.
