Speaking as somebody that's had a lipo catch fire for no obvious reason during charging (thru a balancer) couldn't help thinking the charge station shown here is, shall we say, a little volatile

Good blog though, looked like fun!

Hmm your the first confirmed case that disproves my theory that balance charging is safer. Although I'm having problems getting solid answers to the question... see my post

I like the beer fridge but no beer inside ?

If that fuel is inside a dwelling, i would reconsider an outside shed or something

Cheers

I think there are 48 gallons If you look at the reflection in the fridge, there's a pink gallon on the floor.

Just noticed that.

47 gallons didn't really bother me too much, but 48? Someone needs to put a stop to these guys.

"Where's the extinguisher?" --- That's what the Sprites in the fridge are for. Shake vigorously, aim and pull the tab. Great for Lipo fires as well as nitro fuel fires.
