Default Rotor and battery upgrades for DF III

My DF-III has been in storage for a few years, and I got it out flying today - a whopping 30 seconds of flight time on the NiCAD battery...
Haven't charged up the other three packs yet to see what kind of shape they are in.

So that begs the question, is the DF-III compatible with the newer Draganflyer Lithium batteries, or is a board upgrade required?

On to my other question... The reason I unpacked the DF-III was I saw that DFI now has solid rotor blades - the whole reason I stopped flying it regularly was that the foam blades just don't last - even with no crashes they tear themselves apart after enough flight time.

So my question for folks that use them - how are the folding rotors? Folding on impact, or for storage sounds nice - but how stable are they in terms of keeping them true and inline?
