In reading all this talk about combining packs, which I do as well for my 8s setup, I would recommend that you all that are planning on sharing the batteries with your TRex 500 6s system, I think you should try, at the very least, to keep the battery usage about the same for each pack. If you tend to use one pack over another, you can get varying discharge rates which will adversely affect one of the two packs and abnormally shorten the life of that battery. It is one of the reasons why, if you buy from Flightpower directly, they will specifically ask if you are using the batteries by themselves or in series/parallel because they will try to match the cells across both packs as much as possible.

Otherwise, you can be safe and try to discharge the batteries below the 80% rule so as not to stress out those batteries. I generally go for this. I will say, however, with my Air Thunders, that they generally take more abuse than my FP packs.
