I started an after school STEM program (FFRC)!

How do you prevent the kids(middle school) from accidental throttle up with hands near the prop. I have had a couple near misses myself.
First, we set up a throttle kill switch. This is a good idea for anyone from Middle Schooler's to the most experienced pilots.

Second, a simple rule: When indoors you can have a propeller on your motor OR a battery plugged in, never both. The only exception is when you are testing current draw during a static run-up in which case someone is holding the airplane. When at the field the throttle is to be cut until you are ready to launch.

As it shows in the intro posts, all the students get to build their own airplanes. They can even take them home at the end of the year if they replace the materials.
