Yep... just figure them as a 12s 3000mAh 40c pack and you're good.

No you can not.
One having a higher discharge and capacity (mAh) , the lower battery will discharge faster and as a result will drop well below its nominal voltage and can be ruined. Not a good idea wc.
In series , packs double voltages and capacity remains the same, parallel, pack voltage remains the same but doubles in capacity.
So should you use them in series, your lower pack will deplete faster and will eventually die if repeated.

Lets play this out...
2 6s 3000 packs in series ( 12s 3000 ) WC flies these packs for 6 minutes and they come down at 3.7v per cell. Nice flight WC.
Now, WC grabs his 6s 3000 pack and the 6s 3300 pack and does another 6 minute flight. Another nice flight by WC again.
He pulls out those packs and checks the voltage and what does he find?
He would find the 3000 pack at 3.7v per cell and the 3300 pack at something like 3.8v per cell.
So, explain how he is going to ruin his packs.

Jesus is right

Watch the 3000 pack with flight time and don't worry about the 3300.

Jesus is always right, even when its something you don't want to hear...
Flyin for Jesus happens to be right also talking about mixing these batteries.

Sure it would OK and you can also use different cell count Lipo packs to make up a power system
- I've seen 6S + 6S + 2S to make a 14S (cells not matched)
- Thunder power uses 4S + 3S to make 7S (cells are matched)

It's not design to run that way but will work. But there will be a caveat to it
- discharge C rating will be the weakest pack rating
- capacity will be lowest capacity pack rating
- it will work, but just how well? (you let us know)

.... in short, watch out on your Ninja Tic Tocs and Flight Times.
If we can't spend the money, than we have to put out out the extra effort instead.

I've seen guys do similar with not so good result. I know this is not the same situation, but think of the time you saw the Compass 7HV packs went up WC. Lipo packs are like a loaded gun, Always RESPECT it.

You may get away with simply hovering. But when you step on it, you will kill that lower discharge mAh lipo. Go for it.
