Work has smothered me again and once I do my family thing I have no time for my planes. The Emmaselle is down for maintenance on the main gear, my axle is showing small stress cracks and I need to upgrade to a stronger aluminum or go to steel.
Also this was e-mail to me Sorry for the bad word at the end of the video this is not my video and I can not edit it(Mute the sound down if the kids are around)......
I've seen simular videos on other lipo related threads. Lipos can catch fire but I have yet to hear of one that did for no reason at all. There was always a reason. (mishandling, crash damage, being dropped, incorrect charging, kids with hammer and nail etc) The results can be anything from a toasted model to an entire house burned to the ground. I store mine in fireproof containers but I'd like to build a fireproof lockbox I can put outside. They might get pretty warm in the summer but at least if one goes off it will be outside.
I'd like to see the paint job on the vehicle downwind that the smoke was blowing by in a few weeks. I've heard that even the smoke is very corrosive.
