Using your IR meter I quickly confirmed my suspicion. The cells IRís were normal on both 4s packs, one packs total IR was about 19 mohms, the other was about 40! Time to re-solder! Glad I didnít just fly and deal with it later. I have the IR meter in my flight box ready.
Glad to hear it is useful. Although intended to measure cells and packs, I found a "Deans" with a contact resistance of 35milliohms a week or so ago which turned out to be just a smear of dirt on one blade!
The meter also sorted a problem with a club members' ducted fan model which kept surging for no apparent reason. Cell voltages all looked OK but it turned out that 2 cells were about 6 milliohms and one was 38milliohms!
