Ain't that simple. What is the approximate total weight you are looking at.
I'd make a wild guess that 200W per pound might be needed.
Assuming a 55lb limit (FAA) 11,000 watts would be needed.

The 4200 likely has a bad cell. With careful low current charging, it might be usable as a bench test source if full current and capacity are not needed.

Short of running multiple charge discharge cycles to find out what the actual capacity is, I'd just replace the batteries.
Also watch out for NOS stock in hobby shops.

A higher "C" rating usually means that the Lipo has a bit lower internal impedance than a lower "C" rating.
In a few cases, it's an inflated rating to help sell.

I think that might mean battery voltage error cell connection. The picture shows the multiconnector, and an in line adapter.

Do you have a DMM that you can use to read the cell voltages?
