That being said, an air restart should be easy. For most planes, you have to hang it on a stall for awhile to get the engine to stop, and while it’s hard to turn the prop by diving, it only takes a very quick momentary bump on the starter to get it spinning during a normal glide.
MAYBE THE MODS SHOULD CLIP THIS CHAIN OF POSTS AND PUT THEM INTO A SEPARATE THREAD ABOUT PROPPING???
