Haha I made my own! big enough for 2 gallon fuel bottles side by side and all the other ancillaries, and you can tow a plane along behind it You can bungee the lipo box and tool box onto the top and you can also put the bungee through the skids of my heli, so all round a very versatile thing!
Thread: Lipo Warning

Haha I dodge it with my lightning reflexes! I charge from an old PC power supply (good for 8 amps on 12 volts) in an area where there is normally atleast one person and they will call for me if anything happens. The thought of pitching a chair up next to your lipos seems a bit daft, Just don't put a stanley knife propped on a table above the lipo and it'll be fine!
Not had one fire and the three lipos that were 'better to be safe than sorry' are rotting in a salt water bucket out in the garden!
These days, we handle the lipos just like we would with the nicads back in my day! cause it is the new norm, anyone turn up with nicads would probably be laughed at!

As timbo shows in his other thread, you can bend lipos in hard crashes but as long as they are not gassing/bloating or punctured, they should be fine and very unlikely to explode, oh and don't charge them at too high current (more than 2.25 amps for a 2250mAh or 1 amp for a 1000mAh) or it is only a matter of time till they go up, not counting the special 5c (11.25 amps for a 2250 lipo? that doesn't sound right ) charge rating lipos, not sure what these have the others don't

It actually looks like those back pack mounted UAVs the military use!

Keep it as a 'relaxing' model (reduce the Gs going through the tail!) :P instead of all that mind boggling 4 dimensional stuff!

Maybe your point is why hand held devices (phones & PSPs) only have 1 single lithium cell, so the chargers can be simpler

What about leaving the engine running? then if the stand fails, is goes into a prop hang!
Thread: How Daft can you be?

Yup! on the other end of the scale, I nosedived my depron f117 into the ground with the 35mhz aerial down, It stuck in the ground like a spike!

Maybe you could bring out the opposite of not being able to buy alcohol till your 18, not being able to buy lipo's after the age of 70! (Or you have to participate in a safety course!)
Thread: Ouch!

Oh right, that sounds like the postman blowing up!

Almost an excuse for going glow! You have a few more flammable liquids, but the batteries are not as volatile!

Oh thats terrible,
Perhaps a good time to invest in a lipo safe :s Well obviously not for the poor guy. Maybe it isn't a good idea for my granddad to have lipos"sorry granddad, it's back to the Nicads for you! Lipos are too dangerous!"Would his home insurance pay for this?

Is it just my astigmatism or is your rule not straight? :P
I love these lightweight structures, and how amazingly light they can be! speaking of which, I have that main board from my vapor knocking around somewhere!
Thread: Wing Over

From memories of my early C/L days, a wingover was an attempt at a loop which didn't really make it...

 That was blatantly invented by someone who wasn't quite as good as everyone else, and wanted to look good!

Thread: Ouch!

Oh timbo! put it in a vice and straighten it out! In this economic climate, we can't afford to buy new lipos willy nilly!
(Unless, I may point out, you buy loong max lipos!)

I'll have the saito :P haha just kidding real bummer Our model things are more secure! some cheap quality skirting board screwed to the rafters in the garage, which is screwed to some cheap quality strip wood... *quietly slips down the stairs and checks on it!* All my models are safely away from this mounting, being hung by the tail, from some piano wire hooked round the rafters, not a smart move with your model!!!
