Now I Did It... Just 3 days after saying I have never had a Lipo go bad....

I took a relatively new (6 months, < 10 cycles) 15C continuous 3s 1000mah which was in storage at 3.8V/cell and charged it - ~500mah in....so far so good.
Went flying and the plane started loosing power after 3 laps of the field at under a 6A draw.
Charging after I got home showed about 200mah in and all cells within 0.01V.
A discharge at 1C showed ~500mah
A discharge at 2.5C gave ~250mah

Yikes
