Height is not so significant as you think.Watch the trajectory of the shuttle,move behind it,take off when it begins to fall or when it's momentun becomes zero,when you reach the maximum height lean back your upper body and fold your knees so that the lower legs come parallel to the floor. Then you can stay fraction of a second in the air. Now smash.Real gun shots will come from your racket if you can stay a split second in the air. I don't know whether this is scientific or not but I get very good result.

What the ? I'm like 166 cm and i woudlnt consider you and me short AT ALL ! More like average or so unless all the people you hang around are unusually tall (sports school perhaps) or if you're in a western country or something. Anyways..
I can't say im very good, but 7 out of 10 times i can prolly get the smash not only over the net but with above average force (occasional 'accidental' super powerful ones happen). I think what you lack is the technique..im self learned on that one so i could use some pointers to make mine better. Just posting to tell you that we definitely can do it !! All i/we gotta do is to execute it properly with skill and im sure it'll be an awesome smash.
Oh..the degree of my smash - I can smash to around mid court from my own midcourt area and abit towards the base alley.

Just an update - I played badminton this afternoon to great satisfaction Previously ive been training my technique and movements and in the court, i felt awesome. Shuttlecocks were exploding off my racket. I just hope this continues .
Oh, could be also your attitude, you generally do bad if you THINK you cant do it.

From a short player, same height as the original poster I'll just try to dispell a few myths.

If you really want to use your height to your advantage learn doubles defence and in particular, drives. You have an auto advantage over taller players here.

What works is to get some angle on your smash.
Once you learn the smash correctly, try to angle the racket a bit more forward and down, if you want a steeper smash.
