The issue with the batteries is only on version 2 v911s. The v1 used the old style battery, v2 used the new style battery with the old style skids, and the v3 uses the new style battery with new skids that hold the battery much better. The difference can be seen by looking at the angle of the battery, old styles had the battery at an angle, while the v3 has the battery horizontal and tucked closer into the body. The new style plug is similar to the Blade MSR/MCX2/etc. but they are different and not compatible with each other.
edit: The new v911s hold the batteries so well that you need to put a piece of tape on them to get a good enough grip to pop them out.
