I see you signed on just a few weeks ago and therefore probably have not been following the 2+ years of lipo development in the R/C arena. Please do a search for 'lipo fire' and see the problems that have occurred. In the beginning, some were very strong on promoting how safe these cells were and that this chemistry was no more or less dangerous than other battery chemistries. I think we all know different now.

Maybe these pictures should be added?

The damage is easy to see but no one had ever seen what an actual LiPo ignition looked like. Thanks to DNA, we can now appreciate the magnitude of the ignition and how these fires started.
