Default Pull Start? Roto Start? or Starter Box?

Hey,

I have been thinking about going from a pull start to a roto start or starter box when i get an OS 15 CV...

Could you please list some pros/cons to help aid my decision.

Thanks

I have an MGT which uses simular to a roto, just not called roto-start. I love it. It comes down to this; if you have flabby arms, stick with the pull start. If you have flabby arms and a drill lying around and don't mind the flabby arms, get the roto start. If you don't mind the flabby arms and don't mind dragging around tons of extra equipment, get a starter box. Only thing; starter boxes that aren't set-up with centering pins are extremely fustraiting to use.

A properly setup starter box is downright the most simple method out there. There are no bearings to blow out, or gears to strip. I charge my Ofna box once every month, overnight. Since I drag tons of R/C equipment to the track every weekend anyway, a starter box isn't really that much of an addition to my gear...

Ah i think the pull start that i'm used to is probably the simplest...might stick with it.
