I use the MKII pump powered by 4 "AA" rechargeable batteries and attached to the bottle with a gator tongue and a slimline cap.
I have pumped about 150 gallons through it and I have owned it for 3 years.

Gator RC is the distributor and stands behind the products they sell.

I got mine from Ricks.

Electric:

If I wanted to do that much reeling on a manual pump I would take up fishing!
I didn't get into this hobby for exercise!

Manual all the way.... Cost effective and it gets the job done. Electric pumps cost more money and I've found that they don't last as long as a manual pump.

I'm using a Ripmax power panel pump and it leaks a bit. It is positioned above my starter battery on my kit box and now my battery is starting to change shape (fuel dripping on it is causing a strange reaction).

Time to change to a manual pump, a glow start and a self powered starter.

I'm with BlueThunder on this, The Boxer is the best electric I've ever had! With 15% the other electrics would last 2-3 months...with 30% it went to 2-3 DAYS! The boxer is quiet but is not the fastest thing around...I have all my birds set up with "closed loop" fueling systems so I just hook the fill and overflow lines up and switch on the pump...come back in 2-3 minutes and switch off the pump. Never waste time or fuel at the field...that's my motto!!! (Well...one of 'em anyway!)

Manual. Are light and it saves accu's (again less weight to transport to the field). I find it relaxing to crank up the heli! (Yes maybe I should do fishing too but I dont like that for the fish)

By the way what is a six shooter?

MANUAL CRANK TYPE, SYRINGE OR BALLOON?

I use a crank type manual but I see increasing number of people on our field using syringes. The older people on our field usually have a balloon. What are you guys using?
