    "Every day is a school day" as I learned when I finally took my AEG's out of my car boot. Normally I remove the batteries but was lazy after an intense CQB game last Sunday.

    Luckily there is no damage to the AEG but there's a scorch mark in the boot:eek:

    Too true, that's why I thought I'd pass on my misfortune:)

    Must have been a short circuit somewhere. Eventually stripped the AEG down to check it and decided to rear wire it.

    Jayus Imagine that was a lipo pack,

    That looks like a bad battery connector (Charring present at the terminals) and a short, causing damage to the pack. Simply disconnecting the battery before transport is sufficient provided the wiring is up to standard.

    Lucky escape though!
