    Today I:
    Installed Venom fail-safe
    Batt level indicator
    New shock oil
    Fuel filter
    RPM wheels

    Waiting on my charger, so didnt do much today, other than hurt frddys feelings :hardlaugh:

    But frddy did scare me into buying a fireproof safe for all my lipos. The warden would be pretty mad if the house burnt down from one of my "toys" lol.

    don't get me wrong, it might not ever happen. to be honest, there really has to be some type of an even to make your LiPo go up in flames: a tiny dent to the LiPo casing or a connector coming loose or whatever.

    but, i go for the peace of mind of a LiPo sac inside the metal container and then its not on my mind.

    send them to your email then save to your computer then upload to photobucket.

    or use the photobucket app if you have a smart phone.
