Default Pull start or No pull start?????

I can save 20 bucks on an engine if I get it without a pull starter. I have an electric starter for an airplane. What do you guys prefer?? Should I save myself 20 bucks or is it worth the extra???

this is a nitro engine right? If it is one of those big gasoline engines then the pull start is much easier. If it is a nitro engine then an electreic start is alot better. I tried a pull start on my nitro vee and it was the worst. I got it started once. Then iit broke and it was hard to pull. I would say go with the electric start.

I prefer the electric starters because #1, I'm lazy, and #2, the recoils break easily if you pull too hard on them. A non-pull start engine is a little faster, not much to the average user.

in my opinnion it depends where your gonna be runnin it if you can just unload your stuff right next to the bank/shore of the pond without have to walk then i would go with an electric but if you have to walk down to the pond a lil ways then i would just get a pullstart then carry all the stuff

I like pullstarts a lot more than electric starts. with an electric you have to lug around a battery and the starter. If you have a properly tuned engine and dont pull the cord out too much and dont pull it if the engine is flooded then you shouldnt have a aproblem at all. If an electric start is what you are used to and you dont mind the extra gear go with that.

As for the power gain, you wont notice any difference in performance (at least to my knowledge).
