The important piece of info you left out was how much capacity were the packs showing when charged? Take the pack down to 3.7V(static) and then charge. If the mah in is greater than 1280mah you are OK. This is a pack that should definitely be flown on the clock and not rely on the LVC to tell you when to land.
So, after you know the mah on charging you'll know more about the pack.
Did a charge cycle and it ended up with both cells showing 4.20 and capacity showing 1570mah on the charger.

Those are 1600mah packs so I guess they're ok.

Thanks for the info!
