Haha, I'm guessing you're at eagle... yalls company policies are a little differant. We pop the buckets on every landing... and burning "Jeff's Gas" is way cheaper than burning our brakes.
And the brakes on the EP models suck so if you actually use them on landing, and have to do a quick turn, they will still be too hot to take off!
