Everyday is more popular between photographers to  have a drone at home how a part of your equipment. I have one and it is an amazing tool (if you get that it flies).

But LIPO batteries have a little problem, This kind of batteries can be extremely dangerous and can catch fire and start a house or car fire if they are damaged in a crash or by mis-handling

Spontaneous fire with regular Turnigy Nano-Tech Lipo 4S 5000mAh 14.8v 45-90C from DJI 550 on ballanced charger and chain reaction with 2 more Nano-Tech and 2 DJI Phantom batteries. Fire lated 25 minutes and was caught by garage security camera -explains -

Maybe the best tip is " NEVER charge the batteries unattended" and you must read this" Complete Guide to Lithium Polymer Batteries and LiPo Failure Reportsbefore use them.

Then, how to store RC LiPo Battery safely at home?

There are people that buy cheap safety charging bags. This is the result of use this kind of bags.

Here a test.
