Hi All,
More full explanation. I am a 44 year old engineer, hence the name modifier_jan. I fly 2 helis, one a highly modified piccolo pro, and the other a flybarless eco piccolo. The setup for charging the LIPO's is.. An Ultra Power power supply, an Kokam LIPO4020 charges set to 1 amp, 11.1 Volts. The LIPO's were brand new, had no Manufacturer ID on them. All the setup mentioned above was purchased from e-flight in the UK (This problem is in no way connected to them, there service is excellent). The pack was connected with the correct polarity. and double checked with an AVO. This thread was not intended to scare anybody, only to make you all aware that the risks are very real and to take precautions.
Jan
