How to exchange battery?
Disassemble SkyDrop and remove the battery by disconnecting the connector by using your nail, not by pulling the cable. The battery is glued to PCB by very strong adhesive, so it cannot be pulled out because it will (for sure!) destroy the device. Instead of pulling, the battery must be rotated around Z axis (normal to PCB). Connect the double battery to PCB, then place the battery into enlarged rear cover (same way as the old battery) and put SkyDrop back together. Video coming soon.
