    I have phantom 3s, 3adv and 3 pro. I have 1 battery of phantom 2.
    Someday, i test using battery pt2 for mainboard pt3s and it work and 4 rotor run, but i have no take-off.
    So what happen after i take-off pt3s with pt2 battery? maybe it cash or some thing?

    P2 battery is 11V. P3 battery is 15V.

    They are NOT compatible with each other. They are NOT interchangeable.

    That's a recipe for a crash. The P2 battery does not carry with it enough voltage to provide stable power to a P3 aircraft.

    Simply put, it's not worth it.

    Adding a DC-DC voltage booster would not only add another part that could fail, but it will also add more system loss. This will also pull more current from the P2 battery.

    In other words, it will just put everything out of whack and make the aircraft more unpredictable and unsafe.

    Looks like you got mad?
    Nobody here at least I would hope is going to recommend or encourage you to try such a thing.
    These things fly in the air and have four sharp blades well actually 8, and they crash with original equipment. Besides the voltage differences and the current draw on lower voltage battery and just how dangerous these battery's are, people burn down houses messing with these battery's. Laptops catch on fire, holy crap. Airliners don't want them in the checked bags. The software I hope wouldn't let somebody try this.
