Is it possible to change 3DR Iris' battery to a different battery with increased amperage for increased flight time?

Is it possible to change 3DR Iris' battery to a different battery with increased amperage for increased flight time? Will the increased amperage be bad for the motor or propellers?

Thanks

Hello All!

 I have this battery left over from my last crash... it still gives hint of life and powers basic lights up on my ardupilot but isnt enough to power the whole set. Im worried about recharging it. Can anyone advise what is the best thing to do at this moment? Thank you!

Put it in a cup of water with table salt stirred in (table spoon) overnight to discharge it completely.

Check for signs of voltage with a voltmeter.
It should be discharged by now.

Then put a piece of tape over the tabs, masking tape or anything will do, just for backup.

Then you can trash it safely without setting the trash truck on fire when they compact it. It's safe for disposal, no heavy metals.
