That was not really a hand start. He probably just made sure that the rotor did not get banged up in transport and moves freely. Also, the motor is probably a little stronger and can deliver quite a kick when it's started too abruptly. Newton's third law. When the rotor already is turning, you can go easier on the throttle and give the tail rotor time to compensate for the sudden momentum at the rotor shaft. Noobs often manage to turn around the helicopter 180 degrees by starting too abruptly before the tail rotor has a chance to compensate.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
