Why not require them for NiMH as well, which don't burn, but explode.
They charge at a much much lower charge rate and they do still explode

But hey, up to you, just if you ever do, please sit in the corner by yourself so you don't put another racer's equipment at risk. Our track doesn't require them for nimh's, but does recommend that our racers do. Our club's flight area requires the charging of any battery to be done in a bunk of sorts.

Cya,
Paul
My cell phone and laptop use lipoly
