Batteries out of balance?
I have been hovering my swift around for a few packs now and I have noticed that my batteries are pretty far out of balance when i go to recharge them. Is this normal for new packs? I am only using the pack for 5 minutes of hovering until I get them broken in. the cells vary from 3.35v to 3.6v after 5 minutes of use. They are turnigy 4000 6s 30c packs. I am assuming that it's because they are cheap packs, or do all lipos do this?

In the past, I have read Some companies consider a persistent imbalance greater than 0.05V to be a warranty claim.

I have got 4 cycles on them now and the balance is much better. They where within .07v last time. Much better than the first time.The world is yours!

Usually I don't worry about that much out of balance until about 10-15 cycles. If it does not correct itself by 20 cycles then something is up with the cell or cells.Logo 600 12S vbar, Logo 500 vbar
