Jay and Mike are at the AZ Electric Festival. Weather was troublesome but some good flights and lots of great people to share the experience with. Stay tuned for the podcast from the flight line and interviews from the vendors.
This weeks episode Michael and Jay get to talk to special guest Kendall Pearson. They discuss Lipo Battery safety and how to protect yourself from fires. Using a good charger and keeping an eye on the batteries will help you stay safe and not burn your house down. Lipo Batteries can be very dangerous if not handled correctly.
