I damaged a brand new TP2100 Gen2 3S1P in a racer on the first flight. I forgot to put some foam in front of the pack, the person doing the handlaunch had a sweaty grip which resulted in too high an angle followed by the classic stall/spin. The pack drove itself into the back of the motor creating a perfect impression of the motor in the cells. I removed the pack immediately and placed it on the gravel in the parking lot. Whithin 10 minutes the pack vented and burned. It was a valuable (costly!) lesson to lose that $80 pack for lack of $0.05 worth of foam.
