Today’s show is about extinguishing a drone battery fire. We dispel some common misconceptions and reveal the best solution so that you can avert any disaster.
Our caller for today, Bob tuned in to our previous show, Can You Get Into Trouble for Not Retrieving Your Drone After a Crash? And after listening in, he has come up with a great follow-up question. Bob’s question is about extinguishing a fire caused by a LiPo drone battery.
On today’s show, you will learn the ONE thing that you should never do if your drone battery catches fire. And, to help Bob out, we go in touch with our good friends at FDNY so that we can recommend the best possible solution. Tune in to find out! Thanks for the great question, Bob. Fly Safe!
