    I'd say no and run it several more times to see if the reading changes.

    I just checked all of my flight logs and it seems it varies with each one but from my first few flights cell 1 had a massive amount of variations. I counted 15 to 20 on some of them.

    you might have the threshold on the warning set higher than usual. out of the box it is set to 30% which means it will "turn yellow" when it reaches that value.
    maybe yours is set at higher percentage.
    check that first.

    or are you saying that only one cell turns yellow while all the rest are still green, because i looked
    at your report and 0.0xV difference is not too significant. if there was higher gap then you might have a problem.

    this would be a bad battery that i wouldn't fly any more in the picture attached.
    what you can try is deplete the battery all the way down to 3%-5% and fully charge and see if it makes a difference
