ok i read all the pros and cons
i need 22.2v lipos for my new 600 so my thinking is until i get more 6s batts that im goingto use my best and closest balanced 3s to make a 6s.
i know the performance may not be all that great & its not the same as a good 6s however i have plenty of them & even recently got a few more

my question is; who is actually doing this?
i want to know how does it work?
what kind of connector did you use?
is it homemade? if so which wire did you use? what about the deans wet wire any good for that?
thanks for your input guys

only you have the power to make no difference!

This is one way to do it

EFLAEC308 EC3 Battery Series Harness, 13GA
EFLAEC307 EC3 Battery Parallel Y-Harness
you need 2 series harness 1 parallel harness
and and the ends for the batterys.
You can make them with deans ends

thanks for the link, but i know how to do it i just was hoping for feedback from those who have done it.

deans has a better wire out called the wet wire or something like that and i hear its great to work with just wanted to see who used it

I am going to do the same thing. I have batteries from my Trex, so I need 4 of them to make a 6S2P. So what are any of the negatives of doing this?

what i've read said that you could have 1 cell drop out quicker than if they were all matched cells. the 6s packs are supposed to be all matched. the different 3s are not matched to each other. this leads to the risk of dropping the supply voltage faster. plan i have is to balance charge every time and to match my cells best i can by measuring all the cells individually to get a closely balanced set. then im going to try to create a connector to balance those packs to each other with a balancer.
i have 1 good pack but i figure it would be nice to have a few more packs to fly even if i only have 1 that kicks butt. & i dont want to spend $170 range on a soso pack.
