Just so you guys know..... a lipo melted down at the snowbirds race this weekend and I believe a bunch of his pit stuff and his cell phone all got messed up as well. I am sure it was a case of overcharging the lipo, cause i do feel the hard case lipos are very safe, there is still the need for the lipo sacks.

I also double heat shrink the wires going through the side of the ammo box. Most importantly, no bare wires.
