Hi!

I just tracked the blades on my trex450sev2 with the heli tied down. When I was done, I recognized that my stock align 3s 2100mAh pack was SWOLLEN! So I paniced and secured the pack in a fireproof container. And now I dont even wanna touch it or sure not be in the same room. The pack was not warm or hot. It´s been a while since I charged it ( of course with a balancer), but I don´t beleive that the pack has discharged itself in such a relatively short time (2 weeks or so)...? Maybe I´ve got it all wrong here?
Is the pack ruined? In that case, what´s the best way to ruin and get rid the pack in a secure way? If it´s not ruined, what do I do next? What have I done wrong??

Appreciate any help

Best regards
Hans Jacob

I just posted on another thread regarding the Align packs swelling. If the swelling of the battery does not go down I wouldn't charge it again. I have one Align pack that swells a little bit when I fly but it goes down as the pack cools. I don't feel too comfortable about the pack when it's charging so I watch it closely. I'm not running insane headspeed, I have the stock V2 engine and a 13 tooth pinion, maybe 2100 headspeed or so. I've got one FP pack and it doesn't swell or get hot when all of my others do.
