45 Ion Engines, 30 Gigantor XL Solar Arrays for continuous, full thrust (when in full sunlight)

Started with concept craft and sized up with the MOAR mentality.

For anyone who hasn't taken the plunge yet, I highly recommend checking out Project Fi by Google. I've used it for the past few years and it is really a fantastic service. Save yourself a boatload of money every month, even if you don't have a Google phone or even if you are currently in a contract: the amount you save every month will pay off very quickly.

Here's a referral code to get a $20 credit when you join Project Fi! Redeem it at https://g.co/fi/N8E2R0

From the mouth of babes.

My daughter Evianna (Almost 3 years old), has a toy that plays short music blurbs to which she loves to dance. Yesterday, a song starts playing and she says to me, "Daddy! Do you want to dance with me?"

Of course I do, so I tell her that I'll be right over.

Evianna looks at me very seriously, and says, "Daddy, you have to dance now, because the music could stop at any time!"

It struck me as incredibly profound! Everyone should embrace their opportunities to dance; as Evianna said, "The music could stop at any time."

Fantastic!

I am moving to France soon. Can anyone give me some tips for an American paramotor pilot who would like to fly around Toulouse France.

Muffler came loose in flight when the rubber connector degraded and failed.

You can bet I'll be preflighting that part from now on!
