    Just had a flight and found 17 deviations in the same cell. It was over the course of 9 minutes, so it was spread out a bit. The only thing I can think of was it was 39 degrees out. Can cold cause this many deviations? And if it is the cold, would it not affect all cells and not just one cell? Never had more than 6 deviations in a single flight before. Obviously not going to use this battery until I figure out whats up. Any ideas?

    Whenever you see this it's always cell one according to healthydrones.
    Frankly I think it's a bug in the way they detect issues - I wouldn't worry about it if the battery behaves normally otherwise.
    It's a good plan to have the battery voltage show on screen if you don't already, see how it behaves compared to other batteries.

    Only one other time was a major deviation on a cell other than cell one on all 4 of my batterys. Might be something with healthy drones.

    Yep - the five threads at the bottom of the page are likely going to have the same info as this thread is sure to have.

    Out.
