I can tell you that things have me thinking of getting out of helis ,my heart is in it deep but in a bit shaken up about it rite now.
If your concerned with fire, get you one of them little $150.00 metal outside buildings to keep your stuff in and work on it in there.

Common sense will go a long ways, just keep your heli away from you minimum 25 feet with a 450, and 50 feet or so with a 50 size, ect. Also Fly alone, with no distractions. I make sure if anyone watches me they are at least 10 yards or more behind me.

I'm scared of my little blade cp's they can easy break a finger, and the 450's on up much worse. I'd be more concerned with getting struck buy lightning, a meteorite, or a train and I'm 10 miles away from any freight lines. Just have fun and enjoy the hobby, We got to all go someday, this would be a hell of an exit.

I guess it happened couple of weeks ago ? But I've not been able to find anything on it . A family member told me about it . I know there is old news and wouldn't bring that up. If nothing new then Im glad .

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

I'm pretty sure this is what all the fuss was about.....

It was first reported to be an RC related fire, then they changed that......

Wow, I dont get this story in the link. I hope we can find out what they decide the cause was but I dont see how one can leap to this having anything to do with R/C helis? IT certainly had nothing to do with flying one.
