Question FPV Starting

In magazine articles they say starting an FPV is a two handed affair. Does this mean you have to:

Option 1
Physically hold the key at the 'start' detent AND press the button at the same time?

Option 2
Or does it mean you turn the key to 'ignition', let go and then press the start button?

EDITED for simplicity......

I would say the second option is the go. I can't see the frist option passing ADR's. 2 hands off the wheel to start the car...I doubt it.

I would say they mean that you have to use your right hand to turn the key, and the left hand to press the starter button... ie you can't use one hand.

Hopefully the second. I can't see the first being particularly rewarding, having to have hands everywhere...

Otherwise, with option two, you can turn on the key... pause for dramatic effect (ie wave everyone over with both hands) then hit the starter button...

mmm... starter button....

Wouldn't it logically be Option 1 - the starter button is really nothing more than a circuit breaker, so you turn the key like a normal car, and while holding it in that position you push the starter button to complete the ignition circuit and start the car.


Guess you'll know for sure in the next few days AP.


Cheers

They could try using their big toe, The button was made big enough for this purpose i think.

Do you have to use the "button"?... I thought, I read that you could turn the key ( like a normal startup) & overide the button?
