I think the ASW28 is very good value for the money.

I think the 2150mah batteries will be to big for it. I don't think you could even fit them under the canopy. But if you could, you would have to add weight to the tail to offset the extra weight in the nose. You would then be reducing it's thermalling capabilities. As I have said at it's recommended weight it does thermal well, but it is a very high aspect wing and too much extra weight is going to push up it's glide speed. Not really what you want when trying to stay in a thermal.
