    Only the thing to think about.

    I need to reach more flying time but you know that so called smart batteries are not cheap (about $160-200). So what i think to do:

    I want to disassemble smart battery and get out of it only a lipo battery back without smart chips and use a battery housing like an "intelligent battery shell". Than assemble some lipo battery packs with same or a little less power characteristics, because of size fittment, or buy some ready made batteries and put it i to a "battery shell" using some connectors. So i can change them "in the field" (but i think it is better to assemble non-standart ones because of fiting in housing as i said earlier). So what do you think can i have a profit from this solution? And maybe someone allready disassembled smart batteries and can show or tell about what does it look like inside?

    And sorry for my english, my native language is ukrainian :)
