Not neccissarily R/C related, but a hobby of mine is building Electronics.

I was attempting to use a TV's power supply to run a Jacobs Ladder. But I wasn't paying attention, and touched the damn thing while it was running.

Can you say 35,000 volts through your heart?

I went to the hospital, my heart was beating irregulary, but i was fine a few days later. It could have been lethal, Hell it should have been! Maybe my time had not come yet...

Now I stick to Lower-Voltage applications! Lol. I can't kill myself with 7.4v.

My worst acidents

Well yesterday i glued my finger to my chassis (sealing the cf ) had to get a scapel and cut the skin off of my finger

Then about three weeks ago i arrived back from feild hockey training to see my dad playing with my emaxx (it weighs 11.2 kilos cause it is all alloy) in the street, he was testing the new batts and tyres.....i got out of the car and watched him for a awile and it was fairly dark so we couldnt really see it and it came screaming down the street and THEN the esc fried but before that he had was pressing brakes and it was going fast still and i wasnt looking and bang is hit my leg doin about 40 kph luckley i was wearing shine pads about 5mm thick but they cracked (worth only 25 bux) and ripped my Skins (worth 85 bux) (which are these things that help your muscles perform better) and now i have a large lump and have a 8 cm gash on my right leg.......i have recentley change the alloy skid plates and alloy bumpers back to plastic

Another pretty bad one is when i bumped a scalple off the table without thinking i tried to catch and it fell point down on my palm went in about a cm

Our old track I took a 4wd buggy to the ankle at the end of the straight. It was a runaway car too. That felt real nice.

Many years ago(before most ruleing bodies had barrier rules) I was at a large 1/8 race and the fans just lined the track a buggy went out of control took off from a large jump and landed right into a spectators shin. It broke it pushing the bone out the back, very sick looking. I remeber the next year ROAR had barrier rules in place.

As for my self I have been lucky and only had minor bumps, burns and some small cuts from x-actos. Do remeber my x-acto rolling off the bench and sticking into my foot but who hasn't had that happen

It is nice to see Oldschool/oxyrocketmoron/ect... got back to posting on one of his names that hasen't been suspended yet You just don't get it, read the posts everyone else posts about their injuries and accidents you just make fun and call names, how about contributing to the thread?
Guess you can't help being you

Next time you're building a power supply, how about leaving it unplugged while working on it.

I have been lucky'er than most of you here.

My dad set a soldering iron on my little finger when it was blazing hot. not the worst, but hurt like heck. thanks dad

glued my fingers together while helping my dad glue his tires.

took a emaxx to the ankle at full speed... yup, my dad was driving...
video proof!

and this was not to me, but my dad was driving his mini t with lipo and brushless mamba motor going over 40 (720 scale mph) hit a guy with sandles full speed. parts went flying.

i got hit in the chin by a tmaxx at full speed

me and a friend were at a park and he was driving my tmaxx and i was watching him make some high speed passes, i looked away for a second to watch the aftermath of some kid falling off a bike and my friend drove the tmaxx at me to scare me but he drove it perfictly up my legs at full speed and up my body and right into my chin, the aluminum front skid made a nice gash in my chin

but i didnt care because we were laughing so hard

it was fun

no stiches

I was running eighth scale onroad when this new guy was talking to my Dad/pitman. when a car wrecked on the back straight, well the new guy tried to be a hero and went sprintiting across the track. WHAM!!!!!!! a car hit his foot and he went down hard. he landed on a piece of rebar that was in the ground to hold the track and it went through his elbow. had to go to the er and it was infected for months, as for the guys car it was destroyed. well it was all good i went on to win that one
