Thank you for your correction - it’s understandable reluctance and confusion exists - news of cellphones bursting into flames while charging or overheating and exploding while left inside cars on a hot summer day and photos along with stories of model boats and planes bursting into flames makes some of us all wonder if anything is safe - I’m not one to use what if issues and precautionary statements as an excuse not to use technology and try things out.
Great post fantastic project - most of use Li-Po batteries without any issues allbeit in portable or laptop computers, some cell phones, portable chargers and elsewhere. Heck, a standard alkaline 1.5 or 9 volt battery can cause issues if not properly used or placed under stress. But - I’ve made mistakes myself and come close to bad issues using power sources improperly or without heading instructions such as using them full out without allowing them to cool. It’s all about using caution and precautions, understandably accidents do happen though
While I agree that one does not need “expensive” equipment I.e. drill stands - one must consider that tools are individual choices and one must be satisfied and comfortable with what they are using, otherwise the application (use) of the equipment becomes a chore and most importantly an excuse for not managing to perform or make things (models) to ones satisfaction. I for one am wasting my time doing a scratch build with nothing but hand tools no laser cut wood no scroll or table saw no 3D printer and no drill stand - To my surprise, although it is a challenge and I notice small variations in my cuts etc. it has been very rewarding and bringing back some of my hand skills long thought forgotten and I find myself enjoying and deeper immersed in this project than the 3 kits I’ve assembled thus far. But - then I do understand I am speaking for myself not the multitude of others whom are much more expierenced in this hobby than myself. Thank each of you for the information and input - I’m finding this site most informative and educational than anywhere else I’ve looked I am humbled by the posts and pics I’ve reviewed. Doubtfully, I will never build anything as detailed as what I’ve reviewed thus far I.e. guess that’s why I don’t need the expensive and micro accurate equipment- hope I haven’t offfended anyone
From the photo it seems they and you were minding your own business not disturbing each other keeping your distances. I would imagin if you went for or toward them they would get aggressive but it's all nature and we're there to enjoy - great photo and experience thanks
