Lipo Safety

Potentially these cells can be hazardous with fire an ever present risk however small.
Some pointers for Lipo usage:
  • You MUST use a Lipo charging bag when charging Lipo batteries. Without a bag we will stop you charging and racing.
  • You must use a Lipo charger using the correct Lipo charge setting.
  • Please do not try to overcharge your cells. 1S voltage is 4.20V and 2S voltage 8.40V.
  • Please select the correct charger ampage setting. Recommended is 1C charge current. This means if the mah of the cells is 3400 then 3.4 amps, 5000 then 5.0 amps, 6400 then 6.4 amps. Charging at higherampage may cause the cells to become unstable=fire.
If for some reason a fire does occur then the best way of putting the fire out is to use the new sand buckets. This sand is available at the end of each pit bench.

Social Media Policy

Our commitment

Electronic communication is essential for sharing club news and information with our members. Our communication will be timely, appropriate and related to club business. Advertising and promoting the club in this way makes a big difference to our visibility in the RC racing world.

What we will do

We use a range of electronic tools to communicate with our members.

Our communication will protect members’ privacy, maintain clear boundaries and ensure that bullying and harassment does not occur.

A webmaster will be appointed to provide accountability and control over material published on our club’s website and any related discussion groups or social media websites, such as Facebook, YouTube or Twitter.

Social media websites
  • We treat all social media postings, blogs, status updates and tweets as public ‘comment’.
  • Postings (written, photos or videos) will be family-friendly and feature positive club news and events.
  • Users with access to the Wycombe Radio Car Club administration accounts for any race night page should post positive posts about the club advertising events or sharing news only. This should not include club problems or complaints using this account. Members of the committee or this account must take their grievances “offline” and discuss with the relevant people via meeting, email or telephone. Breaking this rule will result in the administration privileges being taken away.
  • No personal information about our members will be disclosed.
  • No statements will be made that are misleading, false or likely to injure a person’s reputation.
  • No statements will be made that might bring our club into disrepute.
  • Abusive, discriminatory, intimidating, offensive statements and statements bringing club's image into disrepute will not be tolerated. Offending posts will be removed and those responsible will be blocked from the club's sites.
Our Website
  • Our website will include current information on news, events, fee structure and general information about the club.
  • No offensive content or photos will be published.
  • If we intend to publish a photo of a child, we will first seek permission from his or her parents and take care not to provide identifying information.
  • We will seek feedback from members to improve the information available on the site.
What we ask our members to do

We expect our members to conduct themselves appropriately when using electronic communication to share information with other members or posting material on public websites connected to the club.

Electronic communication:
  • should be restricted to club matters
  • must not offend, intimidate, humiliate or bully another person
  • must not be misleading, false or injure the reputation of another person
  • should respect and maintain the privacy of members
  • must not bring the club into disrepute.

Members may face disciplinary action for sending inappropriate electronic communication or posting online content or comments that harass, offend, intimidate or humiliate another member.

If using Social Media and if deemed to be bringing the club into disrepute the member will be removed from the appropriate Facebook groups and pages and blocked from subsequent postings.

Under certain circumstances, cyber bullying (e.g. bullying that is carried out through an internet service such as email, a chat room, discussion group, instant messaging or website) is a criminal offence that can be reported to the police.

In addition, members who publish false or misleading comments about another person in the public domain (e.g., Facebook, YouTube or Twitter) may be liable for defamation.

If after a formal warning any of the above non-compliant behavior continues the club can then decide to revoke the club member in question's membership.
