He doesn’t even mention the T500 would have been toast after doing that

Easy to make a mistake, everyone makes a blue now and then, but never leave ya gear unattended.

Im just glad in this case nobody was hurt.

Problem with making a blue in our hobby is it could burn your house down, kill ya or poison ya. This isn't a hobby that should be taken lightly. This shit is serious. I've seen a few posts lately where inattention was the cause of a blue. Keep your runs small and short if you don't think you can spend the time to monitor your still 100%.

I'm not trying to have a crack at anyone here just reinforcing the fact that safety needs to be the number one priority.

Safe stilling everyone :handgestures-thumbupleft:
