    BE EXTRA CAREFUL OF THAT SWITCH ON THE RIGHT ! ! !
    The battery was low and I was planning a hand catch.
    I positioned my left hand on the red button.
    As I let go with my right hand to reach out, I accidentally bumped the mode switch.
    I grabbed the H just as is responded to "Safe" mode.
    The H went to full power to back up 28 ft.
    The watts load at low volts drew high amps from the stock battery.
    When I pulled out the battery, the inside of the H smelled really bad.
    The H would no longer power up. The main board was dead.
    I had to swap out the main board.
    This is a slow motion view if the incident:

    Excellent video. It does a great job of demonstrating a potential safety issue. Good Job!

    Shame we have to learn from someone else's mistakes.

    Yes, but that is exactly why I consider each member willing to share their event as a Hero. No telling how much harm is avoided each time someone points out a trap or a hidden risk.
    If folks follow the natural tendency to "just not mention" something, everyone has to learn the hard way, one at a time, on their own.

    Actually I pressed send before completing and was called away. I wanted to add that but one crash or accident prevents others from the same fate it's a good thing. Hopefully the victim one day will benefit from someone else's misfortune.
