What are the benefits of the brushed tail? Another possibility is that I just upgrade the main on the 4#3B.
Ah, my mistake. - I think you're right, that is the old tail motor.
The benefits to the brushed are the weight, cost and I'm assuming battery drain as well.
Its not nearly as tragic when I trash a $4 motor vs say landing a $30 2.9g in the street and messing it up.
I wouldnt fly a 4g3 without a BL tail, but its really not needed on the 4#3b, as long as you dont mind soldering once in a while.
