Rough times!

Hey Everyone I am very sorry for not keeping up on this Thread, I has been very rough for me in the past 3 months. I had a large fire in my shop taking most of my RC Stuff! I am very lucky that it did not get all of my stock area. I was a fire man for 30 min not letting the beast take my home! A police man saw the black smoke poring out of the back of my house and called the Fire Department. He came in the back door and asked if anyone was in there, I said yes I am here. He told me to get out, but I said not until the fire is out. After I got it out the fire department had just showed up and they told me if I had taken the time to call them before I did what I did, my house would be gone. They sent in a private fire inspector to see what the cause of the fire was. It turned out to be a power supply that shorted out and set the plastic on fire which then went to the shelves, batteries, cleaners, parts and everything else after that. I had always left on the power supplies and would hook my chargers to that when I needed to use them. Never had a problem in 12 years with that power supply. The main thing is my home was saved and my family if fine. I am very lucky to have what what little is left, only problem is the amount of RC stuff I lost will be a huge problem to get back. I have already been told by my insurance company that I will only get a fraction the cost back for my rc stuff that was lost. I have already started to rebuild and I hope to have the shop better than ever by the end of the month. It has been a long up hill battle, but I think I will be fine as time goes on.

On the other hand, we are coming out with a new cell that I tested before the fire and it was very good. I hope to have these cells also by the end of this month or mid May. I plan on trying to make the PN Regional in July so I can meet some of my customers face to face. I really want to keep things growing in this area and plan on keeping up with things better than I have in the past. I want to thank everyone for buying my product and standing behind it. I only want you to have the best.
