Battery Explosion.

I was out flying my HobbyZone Freedom all over the field we use in Snohomish this morning. NO WIND! It was nice. I was kidding around at how LOW I could skim the ground, and hit some tall weeds while the plane was coming head on at a slight angle and the plane came to an arrested hault. The 6 cell battery pack, ejected from the cockpit, but it stripped the adaptor clip off (left it attatched to the leads to the servoboard) and pitched it about 2 feet from the plane (which I did not see). Before you know it the exposed leads must have crossed, there is alot of while smoke. I start yelling it's on fire. Start running toward my plane and when I get within 2 feet, the battery exploded!!! I immediately turned around and started running the other way. After there were no more POPS or smoke I crept back and discovered my plane was OK and just popped in another battery and flew the rest of the day. THANK YOU HOBBYZONE!
