I had a Lipo battery catch on fire in my garage. Luckily I was standing two feet from it and had a Kidde Dry Chemical fire extinguisher nearby when it caught fire. Two cells burnt in a Turnigy Lightmax 3 cell 2200mAh 20c Lipo. It was in a Lipo Guard bag with three other similar batteries. As you can see from the photo, the fire burnt a large hole in the Lipo Guard bag and damaged the other three batteries. The batteries were not connected to a charger at the time, but had just been disconnected from the charger a few minutes before. I had trouble fully charging the burnt battery and had decided to dispose of it.

Jim R.

bobzilla's comments: I think an ammo can, a metal pan with lid or an
old crockpot w/lid offers more fire protection then these "lipo bags"!!

Mel builds a foam twin (Synap II)




Incidentally, if you have ever wondered why digital servos "sing"
when very light force loads are placed on them, what you are hearing is the
short high frequency voltage pulses acting on the motor.

The result is a servo that has a much smaller deadband, faster response,
quicker and smoother acceleration, and better holding power.
You can test this very easily by plugging in a digital servo and an analog servo to your receiver.
Try to turn the servo wheel off center on the analog RC servo.
