second opinion on battery damage after crash
#1
I just started flying a new build, an X-frame with the lipo strapped to the bottom. Now on a number of occasions already, I've scraped and landed on lipos harsher than I would like due to bad landing or simply crashing. I'm not worried about most of them, it's just scratches, but one was a bit skewed after a crash. It wasn't warm or hot and it hasn't puffed, but I'd appreciate a visual second opinion from you lovely lot.
I'm flying Turnigy Graphenes btw and they're relatively well-protected.

See the pics below. Should I be worried or extra vigilant of this lipo? Thanks!

At most, vigilance is probably enough. If you want that protective plate on there, you could remove the old heat-shrink, put it back in place and add new heat-shrink. (I'd just get rid of the plate myself.) If the battery charges OK, I'd say use it and forget it.

Or you could put a piece of wide tape over the end if it faces forward.

If cells aren't damaged, then just bend it back into its normal square form and keep on using it.

Thanks for the input. It's as I suspected but I'd so very much like to keep my track record of surprise in-the-face explosions at zero. Tnx!
