I reckon I'm a stick in the mud, but I remain convinced that a traditional direct drive setup is preferable. There are some folks experimenting with chain/belt/gear drive, but direct is more efficient and lighter. Only real disadvantage is the time required to wind them all up.

8 rubber motors takes forever to wind, but sooooooooooo worth it:
