In defense of lipo's, James' G36 was right fucked and drawing a crazy amount of amperage with no sort of protection lol
lipo's are great, and dirt cheap, and efficient, but they do require a bit more responsibility in knowing your gun.
The high quality lipo's usually give you lots of warning before flaming up too.
