IMHO keeping the battery in there just adds weight with no benefit. The idea behind the connector is to increase reliability while removing weight!

Aircraft control will not be lost from this addon. The battery draw is dominated by the motor not by the electronics. That's why you always lose motor power without losing control. I've drawn down the primary batteries significantly and with no effect on control or video recording!

Search "808 #16 receiver power cable" on Ebay.
