Buying a Remote Control Airplane or Car This Christmas? They May be More Dangerous Than You Think; Learn How a New Product Can Protect Your Fun, Safety, and Wallet in Time for the Holidays

Lithium Polymer Batteries, or LiPo Batteries, are a common power source for remote control cars and aircraft. A new product keeps hobbyists safe from over-priced and dangerously defective batteries that are a waste of money and can cause damage.

    LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA, November 03, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to, poorly manufactured and quality-controlled LiPo batteries are not only under-performing and a waste of money, but are dangerously unreliable. "Even when properly handled, the problem with most battery brands is a high defect rate, which manifests as batteries that puff up and lose their capacity, are only usable for a few cycles, discharge inconsistently, and burn up which can damage your RC car, helicopter, or plane", said Paul Gaudreau, President of Gyro Hobbies.

Mr. Gaudreau has been in the hobby industry for over a decade. He stresses the importance of proper handling with any brand or type of LiPo Batteries and the vehicles they are used in. According to Mr. Gaudreau, "There is a need for more than customer education and advocating safety. The products need to be better made. I wasn't going to just talk about how things should be and cross my fingers. I designed a new high-performance LiPo battery and had it manufactured to be safer and more affordable. Unlike the leading suppliers of LiPo batteries flooding the market, we've put these batteries through rigorous quality control testing to meet performance and reliability standards. Combined with basic handling precautions this makes for a consistent battery that delivers superior safety and value to the consumer."
