Puffy Hyperion G3 VX batteries

I've seen threads back in 2011 and a little later, but not recently, hence this post.

I purchased 3 Hyperion G3 VX 35C 2200mAh batteries in June 2013 for use in my DJI Phantom. I've set the LVC to 10.9v (when it lands on it's own). My chargers are a Thunder AC680 and an EOS720i Super Duo3. I log all flight voltages before and after along with capacity added - typically around 80%. The max on one flight was 87%. All 3 of the G3's have swelled in under 6 flights each. Other batteries I use are the original DJI battery, Thunder Powers, and MaxAmps. None except the G3's have swelled.

I've contacted the vendor who sold them to me according to Hyperion's warranty details, but haven't heard back yet. Is this still an issue with these batteries? They have been treated with LiPo-care and none have been involved in crashes. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have a now one year old VX 3s 2200 that has well over 100 flights on it. No puffing and performing as new. It has been used in several models with typical discharge current draw around 40 amps. I have put back 90% of its capacity on a couple of occasions, but almost never more than 80%.

Do you leave your batteries fully charged ? It does seem that higher C rated packs don't like it. I never leave any of any of my packs charged even over night and only charge before use.
