    I have the first generation Phantom and have a question about the battery. It looks like the battery is a little swollen, compared to the aftermarket battery I have. Maybe I have never noticed this but are your batteries slightly swollen?

    Thanks!

    Swollen batteries usually mean that they're on their way out.

    Swollen LiPo is never a good sign.

    I really wouldn't use it again, LiPo's can really go up in flames.
