    I bought batteries from a friend. I then realized that his batteries have the barcodes scratched off. See picture. And when I charge his batteries to full they only go up to 98%. When I fly after, after the first 60 seconds they are down to 89. Are these fake batteries. Or non original?

    I believe that easiest way to find out is:
    if bird with FW 1.7 or newer will fly with the battery, then it's original battery.
