TFS Aeronautical Robotics Club replied to dudz's discussion Arducopter speeds
"That is correct. From what people have said you MUST use the exact same batteries (mAh, 3S, C). This is because when the leads are connected to each other a battery that has a higher voltage can discharge into the lower voltage battery at an…"
