Here is my chart on resting (after flight, no load) voltage versus capacity for a 3s pack
.

Note - These values will vary ~ +/-5% depending on the age and brand of the pack.
In other words, the 11.4V might represent a % remaining between 41 and 51%




Avg Resting V % Remaining Capacity

11.0V-- 14%
11.1 --- 21
11.2 --- 27
11.3 --- 35
11.4 --- 43
11.5 --- 48
11.6 --- 56
11.7 --- 63
11.8 --- 70
11.9 --- 77
12.0 --- 84

These values are the average of many discharges of different size/age/brand packs. As you can see, the values are not absolute. A new pack gives different results from a well used pack but the chart is still useful for the broad picture.
