Hello fellow pilots!!
Went playing today with a friend and on our final lake we took a snack and water break. It was getting late so we decided to fly home..... my bird turned over and started nicely and I waited for my friends bird to start up.... waited... then saw him exit the bird and head to the prop...
This happens sometimes...the need to prop start the plane... I was not too concerned until he had propped it for about the 20th time and he looked over at me...... hmmmmm ok more serious. So I shut down and walked over....
Dead battery.... well I had been dying to try one of my emergency stand bys since I first bought it a year ago..... I ran back to my bird and opened my "red bag" and took out the battery booster and ran back.... he hooked the leads up to battery and I sat inside his bird and proceeded to push the starter... once.... twice... thrice.... forth and YES!!!!! She turned over!!!! Pulled back on the throttle, pulled the unit off the battery and got out and jogged over to my bird and started her up.... with a big wahoooo we got airborne and headed home.
This got me to thinking..... what do you all carry for emergency equipment besides the standard survival gear? I'll show you mine....
Blue skies!!!!
Oh and here is a pic of flight back home.

Austin WilliamsBuddy had one of these he used to boost his car today. The battery blew up in it. Great inventions, but be weary about carrying one in the airplane. Don't buy Chinese crap.
