Sorry about your loss Guy, I have been there, minus the fire though.

The Goblin caught on fire as well.

Yeah, the biggest loss was those blades. It could have been worse. Hopefully will have the time and funds to get her back in the air fairly soon.

Just about any lipo that takes a slap like that will end up in flames! At least he got it out before it made a real big mess.

Glad to see that you were able to get the battery out. At least you minimized the fire damage.

Bummer man. The good news is that I haven't seen a goblin crash yet that can't be fixed in a few hours.

Way to go, you set off the fire sprinklers across the field. I recently modified my 6s lipo like that, it don't balance well at all any more
Seriously, that is a $hit feeling, crashing, then watching it catch fire to top it off.

Is it possible to wrap batteries like we used to wrap the rx? If there is room for it any way!
