This is our #2400-L starter.  It was an idea I actually had in 2007, but only developed in detail and production in 2012. The starter actually weighs 3 pounds less than our regular model.
Although the starter brackets are related to our standard #2402 brackets, these are dimensionally different. All other parts of our starter system, the top cover, the ring gear etc, remain the same. The cylindrical motor is about the size of a 12 ounce soda can.
The starter actually cranks the engine faster on less amperage than out standard starter. The prototype of this starter was flight tested on the SPA Panther in the spring of 2012. We have since installed dozens on running engines.
The main plate of the design in a CNC machined 3/8″ thick 6061T-6 aluminum plate. because it is very stiff, the design does not require a tail bracket. The pilot’s side hole in the mounting plate is slotted, allowing quick adjustment.
