The Uberlite seems to be designed to fall apart on a crash to release energy and prevent the parts from breaking. But unfortunately, as you noticed, the parts can then get lost.
One way to handle this: I wrapped some removable tape around the battery and base to keep the battery in place while flying/crashing. I also tied some string from the landing gear to the base (after awhile, the landing gear started to fall out) and some string (removable knot) from the base to the frame with wings.
