Really? While I did comment, I donít believe I made any personal references.

Perhaps I was just funnin' a little myself. Or did you really think the fuel cell crack was serious?

Wow. Gimme your address and I'll deliver it in person. Still haven't heard Capacity of battery. And why don't you tell us the REAL charging amperage now?


I'm not the one that almost burned down his home because of a TOY and improper safety procedures...

EDIT: Flammable pressure vessels..Check. Flammable Brake cleaner..Check. Metal tools in the vicinity for shorting ability..Check. Wooden surface..check. I"m also digging the Fire Extinguisher stuffed WAAY back in the corner so you have to reach over flames on the bench to use it.

Hell, next time, why not charge it in a bucket of Kerosene and do it right?

Settle down Francis.

These are just my observations. I know what a Lipo can do and that 150+ amps of energy packaged in this tiny plastic envelope of magic can burn my house to the ground.


So, I take Steps.

Kinda like the electrical fire in your house. In the open air, a conductor glows, melts and snaps. Inside your wall, it glows, melts and catches a stud on fire.

With nothing to burn, fires cannot.

Did the kids get to roast marshmellows after lunch?

Glad everything was ok and no one was hurt!! You have converted me- I will always use my sacks indoors and maybe even outdoors now!!

Thanks for the reminder.

Wowzers. I've seen all kinds of vids on lipo fires, and this was the reason I never ran them. Mainly because I run nitro, but recently I bought my st-rr used and it came with a lipo reciever pack. Then of course I bought the sc and need to run a lipo to keep up with everyone else. But after seeing this the other day, I went out a bought a lipo sack. So even if others want to bust your bovals, kudos for posting and making me aware of the dangers.

What was the capacity of the pack if you were slow charging at 1.5?
