Default Can I share batteries from 450?

I have the 3s 2200mah battery packs for my 450. In the older 500 you could use two of them to power a 500. Is it still possible to do with the new 500 efl pro?

If so, what is the best way?

Thanks

It could be done, but it would likely be tail heavy, a little hard on the smaller capacity packs and flight times would be short.
Connecting the packs in series is the only option, so in your case you would have a 6S 2200.
I would save and pick up a dedicated 6s ~2600 pack. I prefer the Gens Ace here in the US.

Thanks Rotaryguy

Cost in not an issue, I justs didn't fancy another size of battery to have around. I guess my 6s 5000mah batteries are way too big?
