Today I accidentally dropped my 1300MaH 3S battery on the pavement while I was attaching the wings to the plane (forgot that canopy was off when I turned it upside-down). The corner of the cell got just a very small dent in it. I continued working on the plane as the battery sat on the ground. When I picked it up, it was warm, but the dented corner was HOT! Two hours later, the batter was still very warm. I think it is no good anymore. Oh, yeah -- that cell with the one dented corner is now all puffed up.
