LiPo Battery Safety
July 2014 - From the MYA Development Officer -  A number of skippers are now using Lithium Polymer Batteries to power receivers etc and may not be fully aware of some of the issues regarding the use of these batteries. It has recently been reported that one of our members has suffered a severe fire as a consequence of charging Lithium Polymer batteries, which has caused damage to his property and the loss of all his radio control boats and equipment. The British Model Flying Association (BMFA) has recently issued a document that provides details on these batteries, together with advice on charging procedures and the safety issues regarding these batteries. In an attempt to prevent any further incidents, we would urge that those of you who currently use, or those who are thinking of using these batteries, download and read the attached document. Please click on the LiPo Battery Safety link above to view the document.

The MYA would like to acknowledge the cooperation of the British Model Flying Association and Bob Smith of the BMFA for allowing us to use this document.
