Yes you need to change the connector.
Glacier 450 are now avai;. with UMX connector for $4.50. Great for sports flying a light 3D as they are heavier.
The mcpx stock batteries sucked but the 130 batteries aren't bad at all, I have 6 of them and they all perform well and take almost exactly the same amount of time to charge as the day they were new.
The new hyperions are supposed to be the right size with the right connector but more power, if I didn't already have 6 batteries I would try one.

Just changing between models is a pain with no back light, they should all have a back light and there should be a timer so the light turns off after 30 seconds or something like that.
