Low voltage issues

So I charged both batteries up about 5 days ago and decided to fly. The first battery was at 95% which was to be expected. However the 2nd battery was on 63%.

I thought that was odd but decided to fly anyway. Not far out. Just about a few hundred metres. I then checked the log on healthy drones and saw so many low voltage. This was a worry. I can't upload the flight log just yet but here is a screen shot. Any idea what might have been the cause?

Was his on the second battery? Look at the log, climbing or high speed runs put more drain n the battery and can temporarily pull the voltage down.

Healthy Drones does not show enough information. Try uploading your flight log here instead.

I understand but I done the same in the first battery and no voltage issues in that

Your Healthy Drones link? Yes, that link works. They leave a lot to the imagination though.
I understand it won't be 100% accurate but I will fly tomorrow to make sure it isn't a battery issue. And of course fly in an open area at low level close to me. May be a chance that it was the low battery pushing the volts. God knows how the battery drained and the other one didn't. Could be a battery issue or maybe I left it on as I put it in the case with out realizing. But then wouldn't the battery still be turned on after 5 days when I took it out. Only suggesting that may have happened as the labels on the sticker I put in the battery has peeled off on both edges which I guess would happen if it's warm. (Stickers just say battery 1, battery 2, etc....)

The issue is that Healthy Drones does not display 100% of the flight data. That makes it impossible to troubleshoot issues on their website.

How do I upload more detail as I thought my link gave the whole flight log or have I missed something. Sorry about this... Not 100% sure in what I need to upload but really do appreciate the help and time your putting into this

Oh.. Sorry @msinger, clicked your link and it tells me. Will have to do it in a few hours as my phone won't let me upload the flightlog so I will use the laptop
