Unfortunatly, it looks like this modal of RC Copter is not easily replaceable. From the manufacturers service manual (Gyropter-2013.pdf - Page 8) it says:

RECHARGEABLE BATTERY:

This helicopter uses an internal Li-Poly rechargeable battery and is not replaceable. If battery no longer stays charged, dispose of battery properly according to local disposal requirements.

That being said, if you can find a new battery somewhere (I did a quick search and there wasn't a source immediately obvious), you can probably replace the battery if you have some skills with a solder iron.

But it doesn't look like there's a nice solution to this problem.

if you take the canopy off you will see the battery.

if you handy with a soldering iron you could cut the wires and solder them to a new battery

check the dimensions of where you want the battery to fit.

I am replacing a battery on a propel gyropter is is a 1s(3.7v) approx 160mah. you could go more or less mah without a problem to get the fit right.

if I cannot find one that will fit or it is too expensive I might bet a longer one and modify the canopy.

check hobbyking or ebay

If your battery is not holding a charge, it will need to be replaced. You can find more information about this and other issues on the troubleshooting page.
