Lipo Fires Are Real!!!!
I recently got to see first hand what can happen if you are not careful about charging your lipos.

A friend got back from doing his laundry to find the fire department had been to his home. He was lucky - no one was hurt, his cat was outside, and he was able to save his new mega motors!

Please be careful and take precautions with your battery charging. Use a battery bunker.

There are numerous battery "bunkers" available....

Invest in a good charger that knows what it is charging - take all the guesswork out of it. It can be a simple mistake to forget to change your settings from a 2100 pack to charge a 1300 pack.

I use the charger from http://www.aliexpress.com/item/FREE...1773283598.html I am sure there are others that do similar functions.

Charge your batteries away from flammable items, and keep them separate from your other batteries!

Make sure your smoke alarms are working properly.

I think this is a case where we cannot be too cautious. I don't ever want to see another photo like this one.

good luck and happy flying.
