Did not use the break in lipo method...This is my flight test after recharging the battery when i saw the problem and ending flight at 50% mark:
Cell number 3 seems to be the one degrading first while in flight with a 0.6 ~ 0.8 difference mark the rest of cells were too close 0.1 ~ 0.2 difference and sometimes equal, i suppose that i should keep on flying for 10min only for a while in hopes to get it back in balance. This picture was taken after i landed directly, it shows a 0.5 difference on the third cell, but when im flight in increases to 0.8 max.... and the total capacity is now showing less power then it had before.. Open for suggestions and help maintain the battery health for longer thx

Do not expect balanced cells after use!!!

No two cells are alike.

Balancing is a function of charging so you should evaluate only after charging.

Did DJI tell you to break in the battery???
Don't sweat this.
Research for yourself.
