Default Flight package redundancy

Is there a problem with creating a redundant system in the following way?

One switch battery combo into one receiver the other in the other receiver. Now simply connect both switches with a modified servo extension. I've read that this will provide full control in the event of a battery or switch failure and half of the controls if one receiver fails. I am using two 5-cell battery packs.

You need some way of isolating one battery from the other for best results. diodes will work or use something likean electronic battery isolaterm, Smart Fly comes to mind. There is chance that one battery might try to feed the other. [link]http://www.smart-fly.com/Products/BatShare/batshare.htm[/link]
