Air transport of dangerous lithium ion batteries investigated
A report by the General Civil Aviation Authority of the United Arab Emirates noted the presence of more than 81,000 lithium ion batteries on a UPS Boeing DC-8 cargo plane which crashed when fire broke out on board after leaving Dubai. Both pilots died.

And last October, Air Canada staff at Pearson International Airport reported that a pallet carrying lithium-ion batteries for electric bikes destined for an Austrian Airlines flight caught fire on the ramp. The Transportation Safety Board says that incident is still under investigation.

This may affect the RC industry, and how these batteries will or may be shipped in the future.

Anyone know what the responsibility of one of us shipping lipos? Or are the rules just for commercial shipping?Bill Whittaker

I have been told lipo's are not shippable by air. I have tried to have one shipped in a ready to fly, and it could be shipped, but without the lipo battery.

I know for a fact that they do get through, but that is because the shipper of the item is foolish as all heck. If you take an item to UPS for instance, and it causes a fire, you may be responsible. NOt good.
