Default Team Orion Carbon Molecular LiPos 5000 45C

Hi there

Is anybody running these LiPos? What are your experiences with them?

I have run mine for two weeks now, and I encountered a major problem. Three packs are showing only 8.24V even after being fully charged. We tried different new packs and also slightly used packs (coming out of the same batch).
After charging, they all drop to 8.24V of voltage. We measured all the three with the same Voltmeter and we have charged them with three different chargers. All results showed the same low voltage after charging.
When running them, the voltage drop is extremely obvious from the start and after 2 min of running time the loss of power is very eminent.

For comparison: an almost 2 years old 5200 35C LiPo marked a nice voltage of 8,42V after charging with the same charger and balancer and is still delivering much better performance after more than 100 cycles...

Did anybody had the same or similar experience?
I can't believe, that the packs are that bad, there must be a major problem with them...I'm using also the new LiPo saddle packs from Orion and these deliver very good performance and full voltage as expected.
What's wrong with the stick LiPos then?

I been using Team Orion 3800mAH 30C batteries. They are kinda reliable. I was just wondering if the Team Orion Carbon Molecular LiPos 5000 45C are stable or not???
