Barry took my jibe well....and came back with a good idea.
My thought is to use an MA770, and remotely control it to
set height. Somebody probably should copyright 'Stepptower',
just in case. :)
At the same time, I WILL say that my VT tower was an AB621,
which I could bring down singlehanded, to work on the antenna.
So I hedged my bets.
OTOH, SteppIR makes a 'boom slide' fixture, which allows you to
assemble/disassemble the thing in the air, without hanging out
in the breeze. Got one, never needed it.
I'm all for new technology. So, in answer to your question, get the 4
el, and use a Stepptower. That way the tower will go up and down to
find the optimum height as the antenna tunes itself.
