Revolectrix "HV" LiPos

With the new Revolectrix "HV" LiPos coming out, currently 4.27V/cell and soon to be 4.4V/cell, is FMA going to provide support in the form of standard presets or perhaps a firmware update that shows **Confirm HV LiPo**?
.
I understand the danger of charging a normal LiPo on an HV setting.

No problem. I just received a set of these batts and I'll go ahead and make a manual preset for them. I was just hoping for something official from the big guys.
.
Like **Confirm HV LiPo** or something like that . .

Last I asked REVOJohn the word was there is currently no plan for an official preset as part of CCS. Wouldn't hurt them to offer one for download on the sales page though if you ask me.

They're probably worried about someone charging a normal LiPo on an HV setting .

How do you set 4.27 volts on Cellpro 10XP?

I just ordered 2 of the high voltage (4.27) 6S 5500 mAh packs.
I can find no way to program my Cellpro 10XP to fully charge my new batteries.
The menu only allows charging up to 4.22 volts per cell.

Is there some trick I am missing?
Is there going to be a firmware update to allow fully charging the new packs?

Thanks in advance for your help.

A firmware update is required. FMA is aware of this issue. No ETA has been provided at this time.

I'm going to guess though that it's no different then a normal lipo in that charging ~0.05v under the normal is only a few mah difference and won't make much if any of a difference in flight time.
