It was a very, very tense day as our schools were some of those under lockdown. Luckily we knew our schools were "most likely" unaffected, but nothing like getting a phone call and email saying we have an armed police officer at you child's school

I can't tell you how happy that I am finally home and able to hold both of my kids.
Good to hear all is okay in your family.

+1 Mike.

I've got longtime friends over there, but I think they are way east. Going to look it up on the map...

Glad you, your kids and friends are all safe!

Well if your ceiling fan goes out, looks like you've got replacement blades!

Yup! I got a feeling the ol lady won't like that... The skids might mark up the ceiling when I land it inverted. LOL

Spektrum A5040 servos came in stock so I should have my 58" edge flying again soon! I can't wait to fly it again! Haven't flown it since July.

Guys two questions:
What do you use for your fueling system to fuel your planes? and smoke fluid?
Also, what size pilot figure would be the best for a 74" edge?

I just use a six shooter hand crank pump from tower. I use it for both fuel and smoke oil. Can't beat it for the price. Lots of guys like to use electric pumps too but I like to keep it simple.

Forgot to mention... I don't like the crank pumps with gears inside. They break too easily. The six shooter uses a siphoning technique and doesn't have any gears. Here is a link.

Checkout Spot-on fuel dots and Seacraft.

Examples:

Serious bling right there.

For fueling I use a basic crank pump. No issues from it, only problem is that the 104 takes quite a bit of cranks to fill up.
