Skydivers dive for life!
Well we finally got good weather here in Ohio for a day of flying. We got in several great jumps with our new diver, then he bailed out of the plane at only 100 feet to save his life. He survived without a scratch, as you can see in the pictures below the plane was a total loss. I guess when they say LiPo cells are dangerous they really mean it! We found out the bigger the LiPo cells the bigger the fire. Other than the obvious LiPo cell exploding we have no idea what caused this. The last charge the chargers reported perfect charge. The plane flew fine all day until this. This flight was even fine for the first 45 seconds or so, then we lost partial power and thats when the diver bailed. Needless to say the plane is a total loss, what the battery explosion didn't hurt the being on fire for 3 or 4 minutes did. We landed with flames shooting out the top of the plane, while all this was happening I never once thought I could have lost the receiver earlier and caused the plane to go down in a building while on fire. Makes you think twice about wanting LiPo cells in your plane of this size.
