Default 4s + 2s = 6s?

I have two brand new 4s batteries of the same capacity and C rating. I just want to verify that it's ok to add a new 2s battery of that same brand, capacity, and C rating to the 4s battery to be used in a 6s configuration. I've done this using to packs of the same series configuration meaning 3s + 3s but I've not tried batteries of different series.

Should be fine, a lot of people are now using 2x4S and 2x3S for a 14S pack in the XXtreme.
